An epiphany

I read this paragraph tonight and had an epiphany. Imagine a world where this rang true for everyone. Bold part is my emphasis.

It’s not a question of whether you’re smart. The question is, How are you smart? Give yourself credit for being a skilled skater, or being able to set tile, or easily connecting with people in a supportive way, or taking great photographs, or knowing how to fix leaky plumbing, or playing the guitar, or writing poetry, or being an effective salesperson, and so on.” Wes Beach director of Beach High School
