Big Picture Perspective

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the little extra.

To not just stand up but also stand out, I need to learn what that little extra looks like.

I don’t know if I want to be a hero or not. I am not sure what that means, yet. I do know that I don’t want to be ordinary.

Quality # 3 – Perspective

I am little. I am young. Gosh, I am still in kindergarten.

But, that doesn’t mean I have to be selfish and only think about my own world. And how things effect me.

Daddy says I can learn little by little to see how the things I think and do effect others. He calls it the ripple effect.

We like throwing rocks in the ocean when we go to the beach.

SPLASH! And little waves make a circle around the splash.

Daddy says that the things we do often make little waves that touch other people.

I don’t always understand what he means, but I get the fact that what I do affects others. And I should think more than about just myself sometimes … often.

Daddy says that if I can do this, I will get perspective.

And when I have perspective, I will stand out when I stand up.

How does your mommy and daddy teach you perspective?
