Ever hear new parents say how, the minute the held their child for
the first time, everything looked and felt different? That feelings
came over them that they had never really felt and suddenly they had a
completely new outlook on life? What happened? They changed. It wasn't
even in their control. They shed a lot of stuff instantly because, in a
matter of minutes, their life was no longer just about them. You rarely
ever hear parents refuse to change or compromise when it comes to
raising their kids.They have to if they want to raise healthy kids.
It's my belief that the minute we realize that everything isn't all
about us, all those talking points and criteria that held us back falls
away and opens us up to experiences and feelings we had never even
known were possible.

There was a time when I would say, "If a guy doesn't like that I
write about this stuff, then he's not for me. This is who I am."
No. This is what I do. And thinking that way lost me a lot of really
great chances at happiness. Because I was more focused on me and "my
journey." I used my writing as an excuse to hide. Now? If a guy said to
me that he didn't like that I wrote this column or a blog about my
life, I'd compromise.
