Happy Day to Dads Everywhere!

Happy Father’s Day!

If you are taking the July Bar Exam, you have been working like crazy for a weeks now.  So, you deserve a break.  Take a moment out of your studies today to wish your father a Happy Day.

If you don’t have a dad to thank (and even if you do), take a few minutes to thank someone else who has acted toward you in a fatherly way –maybe a mentor, teacher, or a friend’s dad.  You would be amazed at how appreciative that person will likely be to know the he has made an impact on you.  And, you may also feel a renewed sense of purpose and perspective by just taking a few minutes out of your stressful studies to say, “Thank you.”

If you are a Dad yourself, enjoy some good vibes, rest and re-charge your own batteries with some great family time!  Today, a toast to YOU!  Happy Father’s Day!!!

Remember that studying for the bar exam is a long haul.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.  You need breaks, days when you think of something other the exam and thereby get a healthy second wind.  Today is one such day; July 4th will be another.  Look for posts in the next week on taking some time off on that weekend.
