There is a book we read to our youngest son when he was little called “Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon” about a little buck-toothed girl who was the smallest in her class with a voice “that sounded like a bullfrog being choked by a boa constrictor.”

She didn’t care what anybody else thought – even the class bully. She showed him up by doing things her way and coming out on top. Eventually the bully had to accept her into the fold as she was.

It’s not about fitting in or being accepted. That’s not the moral to the story. It’s about accepting what you bring to life and making it your best.

Nothing is more attractive and radiant (inside and out), than a person who knows who they are, accepts it and is proud of what they have. No matter what it may be.
