A Letter For The Men

It’s Monday again and the week is about to kick into full swing.

Vanessa was gone all weekend so I had some time to do some serious introspection on myself and my life.

I was thinking about my job and it’s impact on the next 30 years of my life but more importantly, I was thinking about the type of man I want to be.

Right now at work, my primary job is to learn… I do my best to anticipate what my boss is going to need and get it before he asks but other than that, it’s just a lot of watching and listening.

I’ve started to apply that anticipation mentality at home also.

If I see the sink is dirty, I clean it.

If I see the trash is full, I empty it.

If I see the clothes need to be washed… well, you get the picture.

I’m no longer telling my wife, “hey babe, this needs to get done.”

I’m no longer expecting others to do what I can do myself.

I didn’t marry my wife so I could have another “mother” to take care of me. I married her so I could take care of her!

A man takes care of his woman.

As a man, as the head of the household, everything that goes on in your house is your responsibility.

Do you want respect as the head of the household? Then take responsibility for the care and maintenance of the household.

Your job doesn’t end after work.

Not if you want to be the man your family needs.

Not if you want to leave a legacy of love and respect.

Not if you want to have a name people will look up to.

You are not the leader until you take absolute responsibility for something.

That’s marriage, that’s leadership, that’s what it means to be a man.
