Find your strong in you- in yourself

It’s all about how you feel about yourself!

Mom always says “Find your strong in yourself not others”

My Mom put me in gymnastics when I was 4.
I remember her telling me from an early age – to never to care about what other kids say – that because my brother and I were adopted that some kids may say “Do you ever want to meet your real Mom and Dad”?
She said to be confident that I am with my real Mom and Dad- that it doesn’t matter how we came to be a family, that we are a family and I am loved and to be proud that we are adopted and be proud of our story- my story.
She said sharing my story may help others find their strength.

Mom said the same thing about my sport gymnastics – other kids may not understand the sport and may even make fun but to again find my strength in myself.
I became the first male cheerleader at my school and again she said it again find your strength in yourself when other boys may laugh or make fun.

Mom always said find your strong in you – not others!

Mom said believe in yourself – believe in your family.
Do the right thing and to treat everyone the same no matter what.
She said if people are blue or purple have no legs no arms to always treat everyone the same and teach them to find their own strong in themselves.

I try to live up to that everyday.
I choose to be around positive friends and although I am an athlete most of my friends do not even play one sport they find their strengths in other things.
