Winners stay home
In my teens, 20s, and 30s–most of my life!–I thought that only a “loser” would stay home.
By “loser” I meant me…staying home.
By “staying home” I meant…
…not being out with attractive, luminary, well-connected people on a Friday or Saturday night…
…struggling to build a home-based business rather than get a “real job”…
…not going out to the most interesting places around town so I can tell everyone else I went there.
“No,” I thought. “Only a loser would be at home on a Friday or Saturday night. I don’t want to be a loser.”
Then along came Tracy and Daniel and our home.
Now, I cannot imagine anyone more attractive, luminary, or worth knowing than my wife and son.
I can’t imagine missing so many special moments that I now enjoy with my little boy because I’m a work-from-home dad.
I cannot imagine a more interesting place than my own home when my family is gathered there.
I used to be on the go all the time and my social calendar was full. I knew people and was known by people. And you know what? I never once felt even a fraction of the joy I feel now when I’m with just two people at our humble kitchen table.
Maybe it’s not for everyone, but it’s for me.
Winners stay home and I’m a winner.
