Be Present Where You Are

OkieDads was created in 2018 with one goal in mind: to help men in Oklahoma become the most active and engaged fathers and husbands they can be.

It’s not that we intend to be anything else – it’s just that we are so easily distracted. If you’re anything like me, your mind runs at breakneck pace – and it’s usually not on the thing that’s right in front of me.

At work, we’re thinking about being home. At home, we’re thinking about being on vacation. On vacation we’re worried about what’s waiting back at the office. It’s a vicious cycle. It’s one that’s hard to break.

So we want to challenge you while you’re taking time for yourself on Facebook right now.

Shut down. Be still. Be present where you are. Be intentional to engaged in what you are doing and the people who are around you in the moment.

Make time to plan for what’s next. When you’re going to do something unexpected that will leave the kids wondering “where did this guy come from?” When you’re going to surprise your woman with flowers, a babysitter for the evening, and a romantic date.

You can do this.

We’re here to help.
