Dancing to a Different Beat

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are?

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

~ Henry David Thoreau

And so the same can be said for adults.
Celebrate who you are
For when we allow ourselves to exist
truly and fully
we sting the world
with our vision
and challenge it with
our very own ways of being.
And what could be better than
Simply being YOU!
Let yourself be
Who you were truly born to be.

~ Happy ChooseDay Everyone! ~
