Yesterday one of the ladies I worked with had an assumption of me that was actually great and this is the 2nd time this has come up this summer alone. Most of you know what people usually assume of me. Though not true I have embraced and accepted that assumtion as I still continue on being who I am.
The lady I work with at the summer camp just assumed I was married and assumed I had my own kids! Probabaly the most complementary assumptions I have ever heard. She said I was a great man, great with the kids and well balanced with behavior and attention….positive attention! Sooo cool. I looked like a parent out there! I have always stuck to who I am and I will continue. I am growing out of a false assumption and growing into one I believe to be true.
The lady could not believe I was never married or did not have kids! They say think about where you want to be in your life and reach for it everyday. The victories along my path are small but this one I’ll take. These kids at camp, these kids at school, kids where I volunteer, my friends kids, kids everywhere; I don’t just want to get down on the floor and play games with them I want to inspire them to get up and be the best they can be in this world. I’m not going to baby them but I want to teach them to respect each other. I have a gift and I only found it 6 years ago. People everywhere could not really piece me together or understand me but I can connect with children in the most inspiring way possible! I will continue my path to becoming a motivational speaker and along the way I hope to make a difference in ever child’s life.
