Being Yourself!

Being Yourself

Isn’t this a great image?! So much of society tries to make us all look alike, like sheep and that can be hard for those of us who don’t want to be like everyone else.

For any of you who were different as a kid can certainly identify with this challenge. I know for me, growing up in the 50’s and 60’s it was hard. I was good at athletics (this was before Title IX) and was always told it wasn’t good to be better than the boys, that I needed to play with the girls and fit in.

Good thing is, that really never worked for me because it didn’t make sense to me. I did temper my ‘beating the boys’ for a few years but came to realize that that didn’t work for me no matter what anyone said.

We really need to make sure that our kids get to be who they are meant to be not who society wants them to be. We also need to make sure that we are who we want to be!

Are you being a sheep?
