Recently my daughter turned two years old and we celebrated her birthday for about a week. When she turned one, we had a big party, but I doubt she really knew what was going on. This time though, she loved being the center of attention when people sang Happy Birthday to her; she ate it up. It was such a joy to watch the expression on her face and see how happy she was.

As a parent, there’s a lot I’ve learned from my daughter and wife. Here’s just a few: it’s no longer about you anymore. Routines becomes essential. Patience is necessary for your sanity. But of all the things I’ve learned one stands out to me more than the rest: being present.

In this episode I’ll discuss the following:

  • What effect the future and the past have on your present
  • How a short-term memory can be a good thing
  • How much control you really have
  • What worrying actually is and how you can control it

What’s been your personal experience with worry? How does it change by looking through the lens of a child’s perspective? Please share your thoughts below!
