Life’s all about tiny victories.

During the middle of a difficult visit to see my parents, I finally managed to say to my dad, “You know, you’ve been raising a lot of concerns about various stuff while I’ve been here, but somehow I have a feeling that you haven’t told me what you’re truly concerned about.”

Which opened the floodgate. Watch the video to hear what happened.

I’m going to post updates about once a week (with a hiatus for Christmas) about my own struggle to walk my talk as I mediate my own relationship with my father, Vic Mercer. We’ve had a difficult relationship since I was 15 years old, so now that my mother, the peacemaker in the family, has passed away, if I’m really the mediator I think I am it’s time to step up and mend this as best I can.

Wish me luck! I’ll keep you updated–and not just with the stuff that goes well. I promise.

    Things have gotten even MORE complicated now that my dad’s engaged and they’re trying to negotiate a prenup. How did life get so complicated?
