Never underestimate the mind of a child. This is an illustration of my sister's Kindergarten classroom project. She challenges these young minds and set standards for parents to never settle for mediocrity. Our children have potential to become geniuses if given the right tools and encouragement. I am proud of her students and proud to call her my sister. Please support your local teachers, they have a rough job.
The majority of us would tell ourselves, our family and our friends, "Who cares what people say about you," to build within them a sense of confidence and spend less time worrying about what people think of us. However the older I get, the more I realize that we are constantly judged by others. Everyone has an opinion and it is empowering to have the I don't give a shit about what you think attitude. But do we really feel that way? The way we dress and our appearance are what strangers judge us by. Why do we make sure our children look presentable for school? Why do we dress our best during job interviews? Why do we dress to appeal to the opposite sex when out on a date? Isn't it contradictory to tell someone who cares when we spend all of our life caring?
It's a cold start to my attempt at the 365 Photo a Day Challenge. With the temperature dipping to 12 degrees and the wind shield at God knows what, the challenge for me is not only about finding creativity but getting over the hurdle of being lazy. I don't feel like doing anything! I am feeling like a grumpy overwhelmed bear who would love to be left alone for the rest of the winter as I hibernate in my warm den. Ah sleep, something that I feel deprived off but don't need anymore because sleep makes me feel nonproductive. Lord knows being nonproductive is the death of me and I usually love the saying, "I can sleep when I die." But if I don't sleep, I will be a mean bear. Nobody likes a mean bear. So please wish me luck as I "TRY" to post a photo a day.
