Lessons from a very Small Child

Posted on | December 29, 2013 | 2 Comments

<br Lessons I’ve learned from a very small child.

You don’t have to respond to someone just because they call your name and want you to do something.

You don’t have to smile on demand.

You don’t have to be what anyone wants or expects you to be.

You don’t have to perform.

Love the people you trust. Trust is a feeling, not a calculation. Ask for what you want.

The people who are paying attention will understand what you mean right away, long before you have to shed tears.

Be you. Everyone who is paying attention to life will love that you’re being you and will become more themselves as a result.

Those who don’t get it won’t get it, ever.
