In the spirit of INCLUSION

As I write this post, I feel devalued.
As I write this post I feel vulnerable.
As I write this post I feel rejected.

The feeling you have when people think you are stupid.
The feeling you have when people discredit you.
The feeling you have when life gives you a blow.

I might be neglected by some but surely not by all.
I might be worthless for some, but certainly not for my friends.
I might be dumb for some, but definitely not for my family.

Who are we to judge others?
Who are we to stigmatize others?
Who are we to prejudice others?

You don’t know their story.
You don’t know their struggle.
You don’t know their beliefs.

It’s important to understand the differences existing in society.
It’s important to understand the uniqueness of each individual.
It’s important to understand the values we each possess.

Life will be better if we accepted our differences.
Life will be better if we respected the diversity.
Life will be better if we included everyone.

 

Have a blessed week!

Happy Father’s Day

Let me begin by wishing a happy Father’s Day to all the men. A father isn’t only the biological one, but very often all male figurehead in our lives.

It’s good to be called a father, but the level of implication and involvement in people’s lives determines ones ability to be called ‘Dad’. So fathers the questions to ask yourselves today are:

How involved am I in my children’s lives?
Am I emotionally present for them?
Am I financially present?
Am I physically present?
Am I spiritually present?

As fathers, you are called to lead the family. Lead your children, families and wives in the right direction.

I can’t conclude without expressing my thoughts to future fathers.

To all the young men and aspiring fathers let me ask you a few questions:
How are you living your lives?
Are you living life just as it comes? Or
Are you living live with the hopes of influencing future generations?

I would like you to ask yourselves these questions:
If I had a child today, would my child be proud of the life I live?
How would my choice of lifestyle influence my child?

As you reflect on these questions, may this day cause you to think differently about your future.

Therefore, go forth and shine your light brighter than before. Your future needs to be better than your past and present.
