Being a dad to two tiny humans during 2020 has been super stressful in so many ways so I decided to create a daily illustration of inspirational life lessons I’ve learned this year to pass on to my kids to remind them of what’s really important for our future. Now it’s become an entire book that I’m giving away as a free download and hoping those who partake will also make a donation to CALM4Kids, a nonprofit here in Santa Barbara that helps kids who’ve been through trauma.

Is this Sybill Trelawney from Harry Potter? I think it is.

I have to do this since I have anxiety (don't know from what; it just showed up and reappears from time to time).

There is a trash pile that is the size of Texas right now. Luckily people are cleaning it up.

🎶 Life's too short to worry about things we got wrong, so hug all your friends. Let them know you're not letting go, no I won't let go oh-oh 🎶

I have trouble from this. I deal with my emotions better by myself rather than with other people, but sometimes it becomes too much. I am not that social and am shy so I don't really feel comfortable talking to people.

There's a Bob Marley album! I love Bob Marley, especially when I'm just laying down and chilling.

My sister and I laughed so hard every day that our stomachs would hurt so bad from laughing, when I was younger. Laughter is a medicine, you know (telling you from experience)

Needing help does not make you weak. It makes you human.
