Format: Paperback
"Lawrence Agresto became a widower almost literally overnight when he lost his wife to a swift and fatal illness. As the father of two young daughters, 7 and 11 years old, he had to learn the ropes of single-parenthood very quickly with no 'thinking time' or 'getting used to the idea' that may accompany other transitions to single-parenthood.

In this book, he sets out the lessons he learned along the way, on the values he developed as he learned, and those which he wished to instill first in himself and then in his daughters such as courage, vulnerability, self-awareness and so forth. While this book is aimed at single-parent fathers, I found much of value in it, applicable to any parent - and for the record, I am not a parent - or indeed, other relationships, at work for example.

I was particularly struck by two of his remarks:

Firstly, in relation to personal experience of reality:

"Here’s a breakdown of what’s actually occurring in your mind when you’re not being present in the moment. Based on past experiences and habitual behavior, you make the jump from reality to “your reality.” You begin to make connections based on your past and your thoughts then actions are grounded in what are often erroneous assumptions and judgments."

And secondly, in relation to life in general:

"You don’t have to win to be a champion in the game of life. You just need to be
your best and learn from the lessons life presents."

One of his most important tools in getting to grips with his new role as a single-parent father was the setting of daily intentions.
