Have you ever watched a dog show? They prance around the arena in divisions of toy dogs, working dogs, by breed, etc. Each all shiny, well groomed and well behaved doing their best to show they are the best. I’ll watch them and see all the amazing different types of dogs in all shapes and sizes and wonder why does there have to be one best in show? Although the same breed might look the same, they each have unique personalities and both are most likely trying their best to delight their human friend.
To me, best in show is about being the best you. You’ll always find someone taller/shorter, thinner/heavier, younger/older, and smarter/stronger than you. But there will never be another you, so why not be the very best you. See life as a big showcase for you to strut your stuff. Strut how kind you are. Strut how unique you are. Strut how loving you are. When you are comfortable in your own skin and living the life of your dreams, you are the best in show. It’s your show, so live it, love it, and laugh with it!

For the next week, I invite you to be your best in show by:
Appreciating your strengths and celebrating them as you remember there is only one of you. There may be lots of people similar, but there is just one you!
Loving where you’ve come from as it’s made you stronger. Loving where you are at as from a loving space you can create even better. Loving where you are going knowing each day just continues to be a dream.
Living!! Don’t wait for tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year for things to get better. Don’t wait for weight loss, further education, more money to be your best. Live it now! Breathe it in now! Soak in it now! Be YOUR best in YOUR show now!
Mostly, my wish for you is to see the best in you while seeing the best in others. Life doesn’t have to be about him or me as it could be him and me if you choose to see the best in everyone.
Until next time, show you, me and the world your best!
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
