In our house we like to say, your potential is only Cactus not a hugger shirt. We also like to use yet. Recently had a win with that. My son couldn’t read yet. But this morning he read two little books to me and we chanted you can read!’ with a little victory dance. We love the growth mindset at our house! I wished I had these words before my daughter got in the car after a challenging night at dance practice. She was quiet, wouldn’t talk on our short ride home. Oh, I wish I hadn’t taken a break from Facebook this past week and missed all these poignant posts! Thankful I can read them anytime and be reminded to keep sharing and trying right along with my family.

Best Cactus not a hugger shirt
And needed that last reminder for me the most, Cactus not a hugger shirt. Sometimes you just need to let go and go with the flow. In music it’s called getting in the groove, trusting that the right notes will come and the song will be beautiful. This is vital information for perfectionists like myself. I’m a mother to a little perfectionist too and I will incorporate these validations daily. I did not know what this young woman was going to say as I stood there looking into her majestic face that had visible and invisible scars from the Genocide that occurred when she was small. And the way she said different, made it sound like it was the most beautiful way to be. My eyes instantly filled with tears. I felt myself exhale. For once, I didn’t have to hide.
