My Father’s Watch

This is my dad’s watch. He died 9 years ago and although time has dulled the pain of losing him, I still miss him. His watch has a superpower though. It reflects all of my emotions back to me when I least expect it. It can be overwhelming.
Despite facing extreme challenges throughout his life, my dad did everything he could to support me and my success. That’s what inspires me to make him proud.
I’ve navigated most of my life with clarity and confidence–even in the ups and downs. But this fuzzy moment I’m going through has pushed me into unfamiliar levels of discomfort and frustration. But they say it’s always darkest before the dawn, right?
That’s why I get excited by making progress every day, knowing it brings me closer to honoring my dad and his legacy.
