When Did I Change?

In BBC's "Robin Hood" there's a quote by Maiden Marian that goes along the lines of, "What is it with men and glory?"

Up until sometime recently I was one of those men. I sought grandeur. I wanted to be great. I wanted to be remembered in the history books, or in the science books. I wanted to known for my genius and innovation. 

I don't know if I do anymore...

It's not that I don't want to do great things in my career. I do! But that's not what's most important to me now. That's not what I am passionate about, it's not what I get emotional about. 

I'm not exactly sure when this happened, all I know is that it feels so right.

Though doing something like this:

I'm much more passionate and so much more excited about doing this:

I'm honestly convinced being a father is the most important thing I will do on this earth. And I'm so excited for it!


  1. I know the feeling :) For me it's come to the point where I don't want to work, I just want to be with family. Unfortunately, I have to work and provide, but it definitely doesn't take first priority.
