A lifetime of change

I’m sure this isn’t anything new to the parents out there, though as a new father, it’s something that I’m learning about every day (and every night) as my wife and I try to figure this parenting thing out. When you think about it, it’s a pretty simple routine and once we got the hang of it, it doesn’t seem too bad.

Though we both know that as soon as we think we have it figured out, the routine is going to change as our son grows from a few weeks to a few months and on. Each step of the way we’ll have learned from the past, though we’ll never know what’s really in store for us because it’s going to continue to change during every stage we experience as parents.

Change – there’s really no way to avoid it. From the time that we’re born until we leave this world – we’re always changing, learning, growing as we experience life. It’s always been interesting to me how some people get fixated on one belief or particular way of doing something, and then when they run into uncertainty – they can’t figure out what to do next. When you think about it, though, uncertainty is just the potential for change and growth. And since we’ve been experiencing change our entire lives – why is it so hard to face sometimes?
