Watching children grow is one of the pleasures of parenthood. Some days you wake up and your child appears to have grown a few inches overnight!
But these apparent quantum leaps are in fact the culmination of countless tiny changes, each of which seems insignificant by itself.
Your inner growth as a parent is no different. You wake up one day and realize you've found your groove! You're enjoying parenthood most of the time, and your "bad" days are now better than your "good" days used to be.
And while you'll certainly have "aha!" moments — your inner growth spurts — it's the many, small, day-to-day choices that, over time, transform your path through the wilderness of leading-edge parenting into an easily traveled groove.
Isn't it nice to know that even if you only get 1% "groovier" every day, you'll be 365% groovier in a year?!
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of The Daily Groove, and to practice seeing the long-term/big picture, I invite you to enjoy these amazing time-lapse videos:
- 7 weeks of beard growth in 2 minutes
- 1344 days of adolescence in 51 seconds
- The life of a lettuce plant in 22 seconds
- Birth to 14 years old in 18 seconds
Here's to another year of continually refining your groove, and enjoying it, one day at a time!
