I was at a family party. I was tired. I was ready to leave. I needed to stay. A child took a hold of my hand and quietly said, “You need advice from a snowflake.”
For a moment I panicked. Was I supposed to memorize all those bookmarks? I didn’t memorize all those bookmarks.
He notices the increased stress. “Do you need me to show you?” I simply nodded.
Advice from a Snowflake
Keep your cool.
Appreciate small wonders.
Let your plans crystallize.
Take time to chill.
Celebrate you uniqueness.
It’s OK to be a little flakey.
He smiled at me and said “Sometimes it is nice to have kids around to remind you.”
