Loved this whimsical quote from Dr. Seuss that’s all about you being you and me being me. The picture of my favorite carousel from Paris didn’t hurt either. I looked high and low for pictures from our first trip to Paris. I have a fabulous picture of Jake riding the carousel near the Eiffel Tower, but that photo album has gone ghost. I digress.
When we travel, we’re free to be ourselves. Being free of other people’s expectations and perceptions, if even for a week, is completely liberating. The truth is we have to learn to accept who we are before anyone else can accept us. Further, and far more difficult, we have to learn to accept that not everyone will like us.
Reality is when we embrace who we are and we say what we feel those that are important to us will embrace us. Those that don’t simply don’t matter. Sometimes one needn’t look further than Dr. Seuss for great advice and Green Eggs and Ham.
