Lessons I Learned From My Dad

While being in my 30s, somewhere in the borderline area between being a stable man and youthful enthusiast, I now have a more balanced and distanced outlook on my own father, himself currently in his mid-60s. A younger version of me might have looked more categorically upon both the strengths and the flaws of the biological reason why I exist, whereas the current I am able to discern the relative benefits as well shortcomings, and differentiate the crucial from the less significant.

Leaving a Legacy

“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”

-Nelson Henderson

Today I saw a short clip from a well-known PUA within the Red Pill community lamenting what his life has thus amounted to.  As I watched the short clip, only 26 seconds long, I could see the regret across his face like a mask.  Within this short clip, he utters a truth that cuts to the very core of what has driven men all throughout history.   Continue reading “Leaving a Legacy”

The Choice to Lead

When we embark on this journey as fathers and husbands, we are making a choice, but at that time it doesn’t seem like we are making such a monumental one.  Things like getting married and choosing to have kids with your wife are the easy things.  The other things that you chose at these times are to be the leader at all times.  You’re constantly under scrutiny, but at the same time, they all hold you to the highest regard in the first place, and if not, you’ve screwed something up. Something recently made me think about all of this and how we’re always looked upon to be the one who leads.

Dear (Daughter)……….an open letter

This is a rough draft of a letter I am planning to give to my daughter on her 12th birthday. She is this cute athletic blonde who is bound to turn some heads in the coming years. She currently has a strong sense of morality, and I want it to stay that way.

Building A Mental Firewall

 

If frame is our personal set of boundaries, and sense of self that we do not change, then my topic today kind of plays off of that concept.  As a leader, you get to decide what your family is subjected to on a daily basis.  If nothing else, you can mitigate the amount of toxicity they are exposed to and  you can use this added time to build a stronger relationship with your family.

Zen and the Art of Archery

 

Bow shooting is one of the oldest, most primal things a man can do.  While I am pro firearms, a bow is something different.  There is a connection to the past as well as a bit of a soothing aspect of doing something so ancient, yet so fun. Today I’ll explain the mental benefits of getting into archery and how you can pick up this hobby without breaking the bank.

The Nine Noble Virtues of Fatherhood: Part 1

I feel that all men need something higher than themselves to believe in.  Religion works for some guys and even though I am not part of any religion, I understand its usefulness and why it’s needed in the world. I have found that there is a modern group of people who have tried to revive pagan Norse mythology and religion in the form of Odinism.  While I do not consider myself an Odinist, I have found that their Nine Noble Values can be revamped for any guy, and specifically a red pilled father.
