Some things in life are HARDER lessons than others.
But….the hardest lessons are the MOST valuable right???
That is the lesson we have been LIVING lately.
The lesson on how to be a GOOD LEADER.
Which, to me, can be one of the hardest lessons to learn.
Here is the story:
Shasha(9) is a strong, vibrant personality.
She is soft spoken but speaks VOLUMES with her STYLE.
She is VERY fashion forward and doesn't care what others think.
(Can you say MINI-ME????)
Lately she has been ROCKING these:
I love it and encourage it.
I figure that ANYTHING that comes from INSIDE these kids and goes AGAINST the grain of what is “normal” or “stylish” is
I figure it is character building.
I look at it like this…
If Shasha CHOOSES to be different and be a TRENDSETTER….it only sets her up to be a LEADER later in life.
She LOVES these glasses and now has a BASKET full of nerd glasses in different colors.
When someone says, “Why are you wearing THOSE???”
and she very STRONGLY says,
“BECAUSE I LIKE THEM.”
I figure she GROWS every time.
She becomes STRONGER with every comment and smirk.
(Funny thing is….it is mostly ADULT women that challenge her. LOL. Jealous much???)
And when her little sister starts wearing NERD GLASSES to be
it also gives her an opportunity to learn another lesson…
WHEN YOU ARE A LEADER…PEOPLE COPY YOU.
They just do….
Deal with it.
SHINE, baby girl, SHINE!!!!
