Feeling safe with others and comfortable with self
Is a gift to remember and pass on…
Having a sense of trust to speak our minds,
Be open and not hidden behind a false persona
Feeling accepted –just as you are …
Warts and all,
Provides a model for being unselfish
Learn this lesson early in life …
By showing respect, kindness and consideration for others
By honoring differences and uniqueness in self and others.
By giving others a break and expecting no returns
By learning kindness and living to give… but do it now …Don’t wait…
Remember what Dr Suess said:
“A person is a person, no matter how small…”
Everyone matters and deserves to be seen.
Never forget to respect each other’s differences.
We are all are just trying to figure this out …
figure this out…figure this…out…
