The Importance of Positivity

The Importance of Positivity

Positivity is everywhere we look. At least, we are led to believe this. Posters throughout schools, friends post positivity quotes on Facebook, inspirational pictures at work (which I always found amusing considering the general morale in the building). I even get a “Daily Motivation” forwarded to my email from a friend. It could be perceived […]

Have Mercy!

Have Mercy!

Ice-quake-alypse 2014 was enjoyed by a full house at the Fisher home. And by “full house” I mean Michelle, Stephanie, DJ, Danny, Joey and Uncle Jesse ain’t got squat on us. And by “enjoyed” I mean “not enjoyed by anyone. At all.” It was a trying week for everyone in Augusta. I found myself feeling […]

Where has the love gone?

Where has the love gone?

My wife and I have been together for eight years this July, married for three of them as of this September. It’s not the point where I thought I’d be asking myself where the love went. I love my wife with every ounce of my being. She loves me. We get along great, most days. […]

We Are A Product of our Environment

We Are A Product of our Environment

It’s one of those old adages we’ve heard time and time again. And it’s one of the more accurate ones. The only problem is, sometimes we forget that we provide the environment for our children. Take a second to think about the environment you provide for your kids. I’m not talking about the one you […]

You’re Ruining It for the Rest of Us!

You’re Ruining It for the Rest of Us!

We, as parents, are fighting a never-ending battle with our kids. It only gets worse with age. Ours and theirs. Last weekend, I took our oldest, No. 2, to his spring football combine. It was held on the football field at Lakeside High School. It was in the high 30s that day with wind kicking […]

Axl Rose would be ashamed.

Axl Rose would be ashamed.

I have no patience. None. Zilch. Zero. You get the idea. I try. Boy, do I try. Patience was just never my strong suit. Oh, I’ve tried all the steps, theories and methods: Taking a break, counting to 10, alcohol. But I still don’t have the patience I’d like to have with my kids. Many […]

My Parents Had It Easy

My Parents Had It Easy

My parents had it easy… well, easier than I do, anyway. Now, I know that I have caused my parents an unnecessary headache or two. Like the time my little brother and I felt the need to smash coffee creamers all over the bathroom floor of an S&S Cafeteria on the way home from a […]

The Highest Honor of Fatherhood

The Highest Honor of Fatherhood

I experienced a wonderful self-discovery recently. I’m somewhat of a modest person, so it shocked me to find out that I am a hero. That’s right, a fearless, selfless, compassionate, danger-facing bona fide hero! At least, in my daughter’s eyes. My daughter had a school project that required her to write things about her on […]
