Today in the UK, we celebrate Father’s Day so I thought I would share with you a few special memories I have of my wonderful Dad.
I am very lucky, as my Dad goes above and beyond in order to support my well being and happiness. Just recently, he took the time to stand and queue with me from 07:30 am until 18:10 pm outside the passport office in Liverpool. He knew that being able to travel was important for me as I had an upcoming commitment in Germany. We laughed together in the pouring rain and dreamt about all the food and drink we couldn’t eat as we didn’t want to loose our place in the queue.
When I was younger, my Dad would take me my dance classes and their subsequent exams in which I needed super neat buns and French braids. He managed to teach himself how to accomplish these complete hairdos without the help of YouTube, but through perseverance and lots bryllcream for fly-aways.
He taught me to always have a positive outlook and that the brain is a flexible organ, which can always grow. At the moment, he’s my go to, when my current project seem unreachable and he helps me to break it down into manageable steps and realise that the risks or invisible fears can be overcome.
Dad, you are amazing and I can’t wait to celebrate with you next weekend.
