6 Secrets to Being a Happy Father

smiling man

There are few events or accomplishments in a man’s life that trump the pride and joy he feels when his child tackles him as he walks through the door, takes his face between their little chubby hands, and squeals, “I love you, Daddy!” I think Gary Allen said it best when he sang, “…When tough little boys grow up to be Dads, they turn into big babies again.” There is no holding back the tears of happiness when those three magic words are coupled with the word “Daddy.” Those spurts of euphoric joy are often intertwined with the monotony of dull, daily tasks, and even some “just wait till your father gets home.”

Super dad becomes the evil, villainous, reptilian creature that “never lets me do anything I want to do.” The truth is that both of these experiences are just part of being a Dad, and part of life, but true happiness is not circumstantial. True happiness is based on healthy patterns of attitude and action.
