I haven't been writing and this is probably not a good thing for me. My moods swing up and down and all over the place and writing helps center me. I also haven't been making any videos lately. The only thing I have been doing for the last year or so is posting on my Instagram. The questions all start with why? Why haven't I been writing? Why haven't I been using my creative side with videos to put a smile on my face? Why have I been afraid to post my thoughts and experiences?
I don't really know why I have avoided writing actually. Well, that isn't entirely true but I will save that blog for another day (it has to do with a huge fear of mine as being a creative fraud). The point is that I SHOULD be writing and I should be writing daily even if I don't post a blog daily. No reason not too really and the only reason I haven't been is that I am keeping myself back. Enough about my fears - I am going to use the rest of this year to see what happens when I write again.
I had a mad and proud daddy moment today. Let's start with the negative, mad daddy. I was at work and received a text from my middle son telling me to "Give me the iPad back now". Well, I didn't have the iPad so I was a bit confused. Then I see the messages above this one and they are from my youngest texting a photo of himself to his brother from my iPad. I then saw that there were similar texts to his oldest brother and his mother. Talk about a pissed off daddy but this quickly changed to a chuckle and big smile. The photo my youngest was sharing was almost identical to a photo that I have used as my profile photo for many months this past year.
Proud daddy - my youngest is a snake fanatic. He has a passion growing inside of him for snakes that rivals my passion. He already knows more about snakes than most biologists I know. This doesn't include the herpetologists I know but it does include a lot of the people that I know call themselves biologists. He turns 8 next month.
Here is my version of Ashton's selfie:
