Be Awesome

After a slow start, our 2 3/4 year old son's talking skills have been growing exponentially the past few months.   He surprises us with new vocabulary words every day.   Recently, he started exclaiming "Be awesome!" out of the blue.   This isn't a phrase used in our house.  And he watches very little TV.   So we don't know from where he learned it.

He says, "Be awesome!" with so much enthusiasm that it got me thinking.  Wouldn't it be great if "be awesome" was the inspiration by which I lived.  Too often, it's too easy to get caught up in daily life demands and lose the inspirational elements.

So the next time he said "Be awesome!," I came right back with my own, "Be awesome!"  Without hesitation, our son responded, "We are!"

"Yes, you're right," I thought.    And I need to keep remembering that we are :-)
