The picture on my left was my 4th-grade school photo during my “awkward” phase. I had just gotten glasses and my dad thought it would be a good idea if he cut my hair for the school picture. I remember crying and not wanting to go to school. My dad told me that looks come and go and what mattered more was who I was as a person and what I could accomplish in my life. At the time I really didn’t understand how an awful haircut could help me. Now, many years later I still don’t understand????
I wanted to remind you that you are going to be ok even if you are not having the most amazing day or week and sometimes in moments where you feel sad, there are pearls of wisdom that can carry you throughout your life.
