Happy Monday! Hope you’re getting off to a great start this week!
Today we’re talking about being AWESOME. Are you awesome? Of course you are! Every single person has things that make them unique and bring something awesome to the world. Maybe you are the person who always knows just what to say when someone is going through a tough time. Maybe you love hot pink and leopard print regardless of the latest styles. Maybe you like to paint cows.
One of the things about having little ones around is that it reminds you what it was like before you filtered yourself to the world. Obviously, having some filters can be good like not saying things like “why is that man so fat?” while out in public. But, in other ways, I envy my 3 year old’s ability just be herself and do her thing without feeling any judgment. You don’t have to worry if you’re a good dancer, you just dance when the mood strikes you! You aren’t concerned if you are good at drawing, you just scribble away happily.
The point is, we all have things that make us different. Sometimes those things may not fit into a perfect mold of what we think we “should” be according to Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, where we are expected to be beautifully put together, eating the most healthful and photogenic food, and crafting the perfect things for every birthday and holiday. But they are the things that our friends, family, and coworkers love about us. They are also often the things that make us feel the best about ourselves. I hope you are able to do more of those things this week!
