Hello There My Little Belgian Waffles !
Happy Belated Father's Day to all you dads out there ! I spent time with my grandparents and my dad over the weekend and we all had a great time. My grandma makes the best cookies and brownies ever ! I also got to catch up with her and grandpa for a few hours which was nice.
I took my Old Man out for breakfast and at the restaurant they were giving away free duct tape to the dads. I don't know what my dad is gonna do with his. Dare I ask ? Anyway, my dad has lived out of state for many years, so this was the first time I got to take him out and it was nice.
I also got my first ride on a Harley. My dad took me on his bike, and it was really nice because my family lives by the Mendocino Coast and we got a great view of the ocean. I hadn't been on a motorcycle since I lived in Barcelona, so I think it was time for another ride. Now I understand why dudes love their motorcycles.
So anyway, special shout out to you dads out there. I think that fathers don't get enough recognition and they really deserve it. My dad is busting his ass right now taking care of my grandparents, assisting in managing their business and he is helping take care of a family member with cancer.
The best thing my dad ever instilled in me early on is that life is not fair. That and being a stickler about finances. We did not have the nicest clothes nor did we drive expensive cars even if we could've afforded it. We lived within our means, and he paid for private school. We had the basics, and if we wanted something more, we had to work for it. Now I may not have had the "cool" dad that bought me the latest fads, but this has paid off in the long run.
Had he raised me to feel that I was Daddy's princess and that I am entitled to everything because I am Daddy's Princess, then I would have had a helluva hard time in the real world. Especially since the past couple of years have been filled with a lot of missed opportunities and rejection in finding a job, dating and friendships. Because of that, it was easier to simply accept it when things flopped, move on and try harder. I am not so afraid of rejection anymore. But this year I found a great job and have wonderful friends. It really only takes a moment for an opportunity to come your way.
I feel like I have a good grasp on reality thanks to him and I don't feel like anyone owes me, nor that I owe anyone anything.
Anywho, time to get ready for bed, my tasty little breakfasts !
Besitos. Muah !
