"YOU SPARKLE THE MOST WHEN YOU ARE YOU!"
The world would be such a boring place if we were all alike! However, you see it everyday...people wanting to be like other people in looks, in jobs, in life! Unfortunately it starts at a very early age as I now see evidence of my 6 year old coming home from school with desires that did not exist the day before. E has sat in Santa's lap asking for an XBOX because two of his friends in his class are asking for this item. And the cycle continues... The same holds true for adults.
Let's practice what we try to teach our children! The more they hear it and see it, the more REAL our world will become. Remember, they are our future!
These are some great reminders:
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ― Marilyn Monroe
“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”
― Judy Garland
“To shine your brightest light is to be who you truly are.”
― Roy T. Bennett
"Don't change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you."
