A Father’s Advice

This passage impacted my life in a powerful way. I go back to it quite often. I share it in my speaking engagements, whenever I have a chance.

It speaks to me. It inspires me. It liberates me.

It reminds me to see life as an adventure full of possibilities and new beginnings. It reminds me to let go of lives that have played themselves out, and do not serve me anymore. It reminds me that if things are not working out, I should accept reality, and find the strength and courage to let go and start all over again. It reminds me to embrace the adventure. It reminds me to travel light through life. It reminds me that life is a time to explore, be inspired, inspire, help others, have fun, and make the best of it. It reminds me that the power to live the life I want to live is within me.

Finally, it reminds me of how much I love my sons, of how much I want to be a good father, of how much I want to be a good example for them, and of how much I want to be blessed with wisdom so I may be able to give them the right advice at the right time.

It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be.

There’s no time limit.

Start whenever you want.

You can change, or stay the same.

There are no rules to this thing.

We can make the best or the worst of it, and I hope you make the best of it.

I hope you see things that startle you.

I hope you feel things you never felt before.

I hope you meet people with a different point of view.

I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I got these words from the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The screenplay was crafted by Eric Roth. They deserve all the credit.

Namaste. ~ Piero
