I believe all of us are spectacular people. Flawed but spectacular. All of us on a daily basis have the opportunity to create whoever we want to be.
We can become whatever we want to become in life. There’s absolutely no limitation.
The only limitations that we really truly have in life –
– are the limitations that we put on ourselves.
So, how do we become the most spectacular, amazing, beautiful person that we are?
I could tell you one of the ways that I did.
And I can’t yet thank somebody who doesn’t even know or even understand because they’re too young to understand that.
My daughter has taught me some of the most valuable beautiful lessons in life.
She taught me how to be a more loving person, she taught me how to be more honest, most open.
She taught me how to be more patient and more aware and more present.
She taught me that this journey in life is not just about myself and my hedonistic self-centered person that I was for a long, long time. She showed me the beauty of doing things that I would not normally do.
It started with going to the playground, a place that I never really enjoyed.
But the beauty of going to the playground was not about me. It was about watching her have — it was about watching her enjoy herself, it was about watching her have a good time. It was about her.
When life is so much about us, the beauty of having a child gives you the opportunity to learn that life is bigger than our little world and our little universe. She showed me all this stuff and I’m very appreciative for it.
One day when she gets older, I will thank her for the lessons and the journey that she gave me. It’s beautiful, to be able to grow outside yourself.
