Dream Without Limits

It's ironic that the title of my shirt (thanks @foolies) says "Dream Without Limits" because that is something you instilled in me; drive, passion, respect, humility and staying true to one's self all while going for what you want without excuses. You always told me to reach for the stars regardless of how small my dream might seem to others. You were/are my number 1 fan. 
I remember the first time I tried wearing a pair of shorts outside of the house (trying to get sexy for a party) and the words you said to me that day stayed with me ever since. "You don't need men looking at your body, you need them listening to voice and picking your brain". It took me a while to get it, but when I did, I was able to weed out the wrong ones quickly. Even though I'm sure if you saw me in these denims you wouldn't be too pleased and I would get another lecture about "too much sexiness". But at the end of the day, you loved and understood me. No one listens and understands like you do.

You, DAD, are irreplaceable and the best man/father God placed in my life. You lived a life of respect, guidance, encouragement and humility. I've said this before and I'll say it again, if a man/woman cannot match up to half the human you were, I don't need them in my life. You were/are still the only man to capture and keep my heart. Sleep in peace Dad. 🌹
