Today, I had to remind myself… again
That every person is as different as an individual flake of snow.
That no two social situations or family dynamics are the same.
That mankind is as unique as the tiny seeds spilled from a glossy envelope in spring. We all sprout in our own time – some of us thriving with little or no effort, while others hold on merely by a thread – under the most carefully controlled settings of an incubator.
That everyone’s brain chemistry and neurological wiring are as divergent as the blades of grass sweeping across the rolling plains.
That there’s no pass or fail in parenting and we’re all dealt a distinctly unique hand.
That an intelligent successful or talented child is not necessarily the reflection of a super parent.
That ALL accomplishments are relative to the individual.
That doing your best and giving your ALL can yield significantly different results in different people.
That doing your best is always good enough.
That the world is a ginormous fruit basket, and you can’t compare apples and oranges
That the outcome of any given situation is not always the most accurate reflection of dedication, diligence, effort and perseverance.
That shit happens.
That sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
That people will always make blanket assumptions and judgements about situations they know nothing about.
That some days this will sneak up on you and leave you feeling defeated.
That whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, validation and positive reinforcement from others are as crucial as the air we breathe.
That the world is a giant kaleidoscope composed of distinctly unique fragments all complimenting one another as a beautiful abstract whole.
