My one moment this week, comes from an email that I just opened from Fire Tree Studios.
“Don’t play small! Stand up! Take charge! You are doing yourself and others a disservice by catering your actions towards how you think others will react. Instead, just be yourself, exactly as you are. When you are simply being yourself you will attract everything that is in alignment with who you truly are. You will be shocked to see who drops away. Their absence will leave a space for new and amazing relationships to enter your life. Just be you, and let everyone else do what they may. You are not what others believe you to be, you are what you know you are and nothing else. Just be. You will be rewarded for your courage with a life that reflects your true essence instead of an invented identity created to “please others”. Ahhhh, doesn’t it feel good to just be!?”

In addition, I just returned from watching 90 4th graders complete a jog-a-thon at my daughters school. Each and every one of them gave it their best, no one questioned, no one complained and everyone supported one another. What an amazing group of kids….So proud of the Lenz Elementary 4th graders today and especially Mrs. Raybourns Runners. You guys ROCK!
