I once heard a story that told of a man who returned to the same door everyday. The guard at the door explained he could pass through but that danger and adversity and doors more difficult to open would await. Though he desperately wanted to know what lay on the other side, the man never opened the door. On the final day of his life, the man asked the guard to tell him what was behind the door. The guard explained he did not know, for the door was created for the man. It was his door and his path alone that would have been revealed had he the courage to open it.

This story makes me sad for the man that stood outside the door, wondering what his life might be. It also inspires me to ensure that I don’t allow the same fate of myself or, more importantly, my kids. It’s my job To instill in them the wisdom to unlock doors, the strength to open them and the courage to try. That simple lesson may in fact be the means by which my life is ultimately measured?

Life is full of doors created just for us. Be brave and open them to the wonders on the other side...

Poser.

This is my son Max. He has long flowing hockey hair that makes women jealous and sometimes gets him mistaken for a girl. He doesn’t seem to care much about stuff like that and doesn’t read my Instagram comments that increasingly refer to him as my daughter. I know those comments are not malicious and, in many ways, are quite complementary, however, I also know Max. I know he actually does care - He just mentioned getting his hair cut. I want Max to be himself, long hair or short, and not influenced by others to the degree that it changes who he is as a young man and person because I really love who he is as a person. That is one of the most difficult tasks I have as a father - conveying the importance of being yourself alongside the understanding that society will always steer you towards compliance. It only gets more difficult with age as responsibilities grow and resolve weakens. Kids are so important to the advancement of creativity and fun and appreciating the little things. It’s hard watching them grow up but I’m so proud of who Max is becoming - long hair or not. .
