you are creative. you are sporty. you are hard-working. you are something and you have something that is completely unique to you. i think that often we get caught up in this place in our heads where we look at the people surrounding us and get jealous and defensive because they have something we don’t. this of course makes us insecure.
i’m here telling you: it is okay. i tried to be “good” at sports for a long time. i am putting ‘good’ in quotes because it is simply not possible for me. seriously, i am that bad. negative percentage hand-eye and foot-eye coordinated. but you know what?? i can paint and draw really well. also i like the way i load the dishwasher. i have definitely perfected my dish cleaning technique. and baby no one can load dishes the way i can. there is absolutely something about you that no one else has, and that is great. because i think the world would be a really boring place if we all loaded dishwashers the same way.
so discover your something and go be even greater at it. or better, go find a something and be really passionate about it. maybe you are an awesome gymnast or you brush your teeth really effectively. perfect your technique, or use it in a different way than you have before. and for goodness sake let’s stop being jealous of other people and start celebrating them for how incredible and unique they are.
documenting the fun years.
