Are you present or are you present?

Are you really here?

In a podcast interview I did recently I talked a bit about parenting. I talked about how I was always physically present with my kids. 

I did all the things a ‘good dad’ is supposed to do. I coached soccer, I attended recitals, school performances and all the parent teacher interviews.

And while I think for the most part I have been a very good father, when I reflect on how many times I may have been physically present without actually showing up it makes me a little bit sad.

It is important to recognize the difference between being physically present and fully showing up for those in our lives.

As always continue to make beautiful shit happen.
