My Thoughts While Reading

This is a really humorous book that shows how sometimes you need your friends to give you a boost in confidence. My daughter and I have been reading this over and over at night and have laughed with each page. One of my favorite messages in this book is that if you compare yourself to others, you will never think you are good at anything. You have to love yourself and celebrate each other.

“I’m not the best at anything!” This quote shows that if you compare yourself to others, you won’t be the best. Being the best is not what is important. Valuing yourself and each other is what it is all about.

Writing Prompt

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, someone is always better? What can you learn about yourself if you stop comparing to everyone else?
