everybody’s watching

As most of you know, there are always going to be people younger then you, in my case kids, who are watching every single thing you do. They see your facial expressions, they hear your words, they watch your actions, and they never forget.

When I was a kid I always thought it was so fun to be at ballet and see the little toddlers watching us dance. They thought we were all so grown up. Lets be honest, we thought we were pretty fantastic, too. I knew when little ones were watching me, I always knew.

Now that I’m older I really don’t notice kids watching me, copying me, or following me. At ballet, I’m focused on myself, and in life I’m more aware of the opinions of people my age and older. However, when I think of when I was around 9 or 10, the older teenage girls were like super-heroes to me. They were so pretty, talented, and well… what I wanted to be. Every kid wants to grow up, so they figure they might as well try to be grown-up now.

The younger ones are always watching us, and we need to be aware that they will pick up on every thing we do, and eventually try to become it. Our lives shape other lives, and we want to leave lasting positive impressions on those who see us, especially kids who are learning who they were created to be.
