Teaching Story - Be an original
by Life Positive
“What did you say?” asked her father curiously.
“I said Kareena Kapoor,” said Ayesha proudly.
“Why do you like Kareena?” asked her father. “She is so pretty, daddy!” exclaimed Ayesha. “I so want to look like her!
“But how do you plan to do that?”
“I..I don’t know. But I want to look like her.”
“When I see you, I see a very pretty girl. You may not be Kareena, but you are fine as Ayesha,” said her father seriously. “Adopting film actors as our heroes and heroines is part of being young, but in the process don’t put yourself down.” He added, “But if you are trying so hard to be Kareena, you will stop being Ayesha. Why be a carbon copy when you can be an original?” Ayesha began to look interested. Being an original – that was so cool! Her father added, “Each of us is unique. We have come down to earth to develop our own beautiful gifts. You are such a fine singer, for instance. Can you see how this might be your own wonderful gift to the world? Focus on being yourself, child, and you will achieve great things in life.”
“Okay, dad,” she said. “I love the way Kareena looks but I am now going to focus on being the best Ayesha I can be.”
“That’s my girl,” said her father, giving her a big hug.
