One of my greatest accomplishments to date is getting my dad to do Soul Cycle. This is a guy who hates exercise and gorges on jelly donuts for breakfast, arguing that jelly is fruit so it’s basically healthy. Needless to say, the fact that I got him there and he actually liked it is nothing short of a miracle!
Now, every Monday night I have a Soul Cycle/sushi date with my dad. Pretty adorable, if I do say so myself. Not only does it combine two of my favorite things - tapping it back and tuna - but I also get to spend unparalleled quality time with my dad. It’s something very special that we share.
It’s so easy for our calendars to fill up with lengthy to-do lists, work, social engagements, - you name it! It’s nice then, to have this time blocked out. It serves as a weekly reminder of the real priorities in life- family, health, and happiness.
