The Bluebird parents are still feeding their young from the last brood, which takes energy and attention away from the nest.

So maybe the only guarantee in nature is that it is always changing.
I know this, but often my brain refuses to accept this as a fact. Then discomfort arises when I refuse to make space for change and begin to think and act like I'm a victim, when, in fact, I do have a choice in how I will respond. And sometimes the response is NOT to respond.
This is something I have to re-learn every day. Every day, I have to start over and make peace with change. One of my favorite quotes (source unknown): "Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional." I choose not to suffer. But tomorrow I will have forgotten that, and will start over. Again.
