Take the challenges that scare you the most head on. Jump straight in and learn on the go. Life's biggest commitments, like getting married or having children, are never easy. You are never completely prepared for them no matter how much reading and studying you might do.
Be aware of the obvious. From there be mentally ready for anything. No job, relationship, or baby is the same. How many days are exactly alike in your life? Surprises, both good and bad pop up all the time. You've got to learn to roll with the punches. Your past experiences will help you, but they won't have the answers for everything you'll encounter moving forward.
Know this. Accept this. Life has a way of working itself out. The ride is rarely smooth, but the experiences are worth it.
Recently Amber and I have fostered a mother cat and 5 kittens. They are absolutely the cutest thing ever when we're feeding them, but we didn't know the energy they'd have already, the ability to climb anything that they possess just a few weeks after birth, or how the dynamics between the mom and babies develop. We're learning though. The scratch marks, on us and all our furniture, will be the scars of the past to remember these memories.
We are Amber and Jordan Kirbey. We are excited to share our experiences and ideas with you!
