Watching a baby learn how to walk has got to be one of the cutest and most terrifying things to behold. Although the takeaway is surely that the only way to succeed is to try and try again. When you stumble, when you fall, when it hurts… to continue, to persevere, to believe that the goal is always achievable. The only person that needs to believe in you, is you.
These are the simple messages of childhood that are so easy to forget. A little confidence chipped away here, a little confidence knocked there. Apparently it takes ten times as many positives to erase a negative. I hope I give people more positives than negatives in that ratio. It’s something worth thinking about before any of us gives ‘constructive criticism’ or just down right trolls someone in the virtual or real world. Does that negativity really need an outlet? Isn’t it better to lift each other up? Would you want to someone to say that to you? Am I spreading love or hate?
I’ve never left a single negative comment on a post, gram or anything else. I dont intend to. Ever. It’s just not for me.
I think it is the responsibility of every single one of us to create a world (virtually and IRL) that is better. More positive, inclusive and more hopeful for the next generation.
