Good morning to all of you bright and shining people out there trying to make this all happen! I am sitting here looking in my back yard at the leaves falling on the ground littering my back yard with reds and yellows and oranges galore with my cup of dark roast in hand and I am ready to take this Monday on.
You know, this weekend was the last game of the season in football for my son (thank goodness) and as we were headed back from the game and driving home, we were talking about popularity and social classes and the fact that some people don’t like him at school and some people really do.
Now, first I wanted to share that I learn more from my 12 year old son than I think that I ever did as a child or from any book or any films. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to communication, emotional intelligence, dealing with conflict, and all kinds of other topics. These kids have to grow up super fast today.
Anyway, we were talking about comparison and how he worries so much about what one person thinks about him and when there are kids who don’t like his outgoing and aggressive personality, he fights even harder to try to get them to like him and we talked about not worrying about those kids. Be yourself. Worry about yourself. Be true to who you are and never compare yourself to anyone was the theme of the conversation.
This is something I feel that we also need to take heed of. We compare oh too often in society where we have to fit a certain mold when it comes to looks, economic status, popularity, etc…
Be yourself. Be true to who you are. Be the BEST version of you and don’t let before and after photos and images of success drag you down because you are moving at a slower pace. You are a rockstar for being here … now live in the moment and embrace it and make it YOUR own.
Have a great day.
Much Love, Shano
