In elementary school during an art class, the teacher gave us each a piece of paper with a traced Outline of a Paw Print. (Our school mascot was a Polar Bear.) Our task was to make a new picture using that outline. Most kids made a baseball glove or something that makes sense. When it was my turn to show off what I made to our teacher, I handed her back the same empty outline and said “ I made a paw print.”
I think I was the only one that laughed. I tell this story because whenever someone has asked one of those questions about how you were when you were a kid, This is what I tell. I’ve always been one to not really care about directions and to make light of any situation. I’ve never cared too much about doing something as explained by someone else. I’ve always believed to make anything how you choose to. People could probably use the terms; annoying, childish, etc. If you notice, the world still kept spinning and everyone turned out okay. The point is, not to worry about insignificant things that occur in your life. Especially with the people around you not even remotely affecting your day to day in anyway. Just always think, while you’re stressed or freaking out about what someone else is doing, Is this actually an impacting situation or just another paw print? In most cases, just loosen up and laugh a little.
