I’ll be honest, I really love children’s books. Sometimes I think their author’s have a way of simplifying life in a beautiful way. I found “Is There Really a Human Race?” by Jamie Lee Curtis in my collection the other day and loved this part:
“Sometimes it’s better not to go so fast.
There are beautiful sights to be seen when you’re last.
Shouldn’t it be that you just try your best?
And that’s more important than beating the rest?
Shouldn’t it be looking back at the end
that you judge your own race by the help that you lend?
So, take what’s inside you and make big, bold choices,
And for those who can’t speak for themselves, use BOLD voices.
And make friends and love well, bring art to this place,
And make the world better for the whole human race.”
Slow down. Be you. Love people.
