I have been following a group of Millennials on Tumblr. They are mainly girls around 16-21. I love seeing the things they post and what they are into. I am loving seeing things through their eyes and what is important to them and this week a young girl's post stopped me cold. This is the post.
I was instantly vehemently saying to the computer screen, "No..Everything you do is beautiful!" After a short period of reflecting on this I said to my 19-year-old, "Everything you do is beautiful." He said-"What?" "You heard me, Everything you do is beautiful." Then I explained to him the 21-year-old's Tumblr post and why I said it.
He understood but, he said all of his friends and his whole generation felt this way. "But why?" I asked. He really had no answer.
I thought about it for awhile and I remembered back to my being 21 and I realized that I had felt the same way.
So with heartfelt understanding I realized I needed to tell my own two Millennials this often. My 21-year-old comes into the room and I tell him, "Everything you do is beautiful," and he says,"Wha-what?" I explain to him and he smiles. He obviously loves it. I have told them both again several times since I first told them and they smile-they love it! Why haven't I said this to them before? Why?
So, this week I am thankful for my Millennials and I will tell them often that,"Everything they do is beautiful."
This is the new way I am doing my tea post. I am going to talk about something that is inspiring me for the week. Do you like my Brown Betty teapot? It is made by Royal Canadian Art Pottery. The teacup is by Royal Staffordshire Dinnerware the pattern is Charlotte.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving here in the States!
