Dear old dad. He is the man that has been there through it all. He is the one that taught us how to throw a baseball, how to ride a bike and how to drive a car. He is the one that had to watch in horror as we constantly made terrible dating decisions. He is the one that attended every sporting event, dance recital, play and graduation. Most importantly, he is the one that was always there to give us fatherly advice and leave us with a great quote or two.
When it comes to my dad, he gave me and my siblings so many great words of inspiration it is hard to keep track of them all. I felt selfish keeping all of this advice to myself, so I decided to share it with all of you! In the spirit of Father’s Day, here is a look at the good, the bad and the interesting advice/quotes from my very own father.
“Who cares if you’re the rebound? Sometimes the rebound turns into the game-winning shot.”
“Do you really want to be with someone you have to convince to want to be with you?”
“If you wear a wedding dress that is too poofy your husband won’t be able to touch you, which let’s just say, will definitely be a problem.”
On getting in trouble:
“We don’t sell out our friends.”
“Sometimes it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission.”
“If the police try to call me and wake me up, tell them I am going to be more mad at them than I am at you.”
On dealing with others:
“If someone tries to talk crap to you, just punch them in the face and walk away.”
On knowing what you want:
If you don’t actually want to know the truth don’t ask for it!
“If you play hard enough we can get a Slurpee after the game.”
On all of the other important things in life:
“Never disrespect your mother.”
“Football time is like conference time, there is reverence and we do not talk!”
“A unicycle could change everything!”
“Always help others when you have the opportunity.”
“There is never a bad time to wear red, white and blue.”
“You can do absolutely whatever you want, as long as it’s your birthday.”
“You have the opportunity to be happier every day, that is what makes life so great.”
Hopefully you found a little gem of wisdom worth holding onto. I am so lucky to be the daughter of my amazing father and for all of the great advice he has given me throughout the years! Make sure you all hug your fathers a little tighter today.
Thanks for stopping by!
