Dare To Be A Hotdog

An Open Letter To The Coolest Kid Ever

Dare To Be A Hotdog

First of all, if you're not familiar with the little girl I'm talking about, I'm referencing the coolest kid on this planet. A few days ago, I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a viral post about this inspirational little human. Apparently, it was "Princess Day" at the little girl's dance class and she showed up dressed as a hotdog among all the other children dressed up as their favorite Disney princesses. A few days later, I shared a meme that said, "In a world full of Princesses, be a hotdog" and in reality, it's true. The bottom line? This kid gets it. She is so wise beyond her years and she doesn't even realize it.

Dear Little Dancing Hotdog,

You are definitely the coolest person I know of, I don't know any other person that would have the courage to be their truest self as you have and I want you to know that your bravery is one of the most important and rare qualities a person can have. I understand that You're young and you may not be concerned with things like this right now, but I want you to know that later in life you will be told by so many people that it's not right to be a hotdog. These people are everywhere unfortunately, and they can be rude, selfish, and even mean, but stand your ground. Don't be afraid to be different from everyone around you, after all, there is only one you and you have the right to become anything you want to be. There will be times when you'll look at the other people, dressed up like royalty, and you'll wonder, "Why did I do this? Why can't I just be normal, like everyone else?" You're not normal because that's not who you're supposed to be, you were not born to blend in with everyone else. You were created by God to be the best version of yourself possible and I hope you honor your individuality to the best of your abilities. I want to thank you so much for being such a light to everyone and bringing everyone so much joy, I know as you continue to grow up, your personality and perspective will continue to shine. And if you ever find yourself down because you're a hotdog, just remember that you are so amazing and you have the power in your heart to make the world better. So, go and be the best hotdog you can be, little one. You're going places, kid.

Keep Shining,

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
