International Men's Day

Since today is International Men’s Day, reflect on these questions surrounding manhood:

  • Have been initiated into manhood?
  • How would I rate myself as a Man at this juncture in my life?
  • In what areas do I have yet to grow?
  • Where do I hold back in my life?
  • What would I do if I wasn’t afraid today?
  • How and What am I contributing to the world right now?
  • How can I help a fellow man today?
  • If I were to celebrate one thing about myself today, what would it be and whom can I share that with?
  • Do I have other quality men in my life that demand the best from me and that have my back? If not, what am I going to do about it?
  • Can I heal whatever wounds I have helped create toward women?
  • What kind of man (father, son, brother, husband) do I want to be? What can I commit to to make that happen

Feel free to share below or with a fellow man. Practice celebrating your manhood with the women in your life. Let them know how you intend to carry yourself as a man. Will you be a typical man who acts like a boy or are you ready to man up and be a man?

    Brother, I remember congratulating you when your son was born. Now he is a man-child.

    You are blessed.

    Keep on inspiring.
