The sun sets on another day…
Here today I continue my review of a friends post of things to tell your daughter. I have thought about them all, but this one is interesting. It states :'”Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself”
I thought about this a lot as I watched children and adults at an art fair and I truly believe it would be best modified for both boys and girls as “Be only as nice as you need to be without compromising yourself.”
Well, the world have become an interesting place, in my opinion. It is hard to know who you can trust, and important to protect yourself quite well. No no, I do not mean going out and getting 2 bodyguards with rocket launchers but I do think we need to make certain we avoid getting ourselves into trouble. If we are too nice people can take advantage, and if we go too far, well, we lose our ability to stay distinct. I think the idea of being a little spicy may apply to both boys and girls, and making sure we keep our eyes wide open as we be “nice” is part of that really spicy self confidence we all need and deserve. Take a second, consider, has anyone ever taken advantage of you when you are nice? Has anyone taken all you have had to give and , well, given nothing in return?
It happens. But it doesn’t have to, the choice, in my opinion, is to not allow yourself to ever be compromised.
So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the people you can trust, and be as nice as you need to be. Only you will know that niceness level and only you will be responsible, so be responsible, enjoy the moments, make sure you are in the control you need to be, and be happy every day with who you are, whether it be sugar, spice, snails or puppy dog tails, be you, and make you the best thing you can, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and have fun every day…
