Thought I would share a quick video of my visit to my old elementary school, S.S. Conner and a little about my book that I am editing to the point of completion now, “22 Life Lessons For Personal Growth.”
In other news, I have been so busy drawing and preparing art for the book. Miles Cooper, as you know, is the 11 -year-old boy that is featured in my book along with his stories connected to mine in all 22 chapters.
Also, while working on my own stuff, I have been thinking about the show, “Gravity Falls” as of late and about other cartoons that I have watched over a number of years. Each of the shows I watch, I have connected too immediately, because each character had a kind of personality and trait that I felt I connected too the most.
One, for example, being Dipper Pines, which as you know is one of my favorite characters from the Disney series, “Gravity Falls.”
While talking with my success coach, CJ Small, we addressed the idea and point that we must “embrace our identity.” When I was in elementary school, my identity was constantly under attack. It was under attack because I was “different,” and who wants to be different? Who wants to be singled out? Who wants to be the odd man out?
But, that’s just it, the world NEEDS you to be! If you want to be successful, you have to be!
Every good character has traits that make them who they are, and every person who is themselves leave open doors and opportunities for people to be inspired, encouraged and uplifted to do something greater than themselves.
