Pay No Mind to the Demons….

… they fill you with fear.

Last night Phillip Phillips was crowned  the winner of American Idol season 11. It was an awesome moment to watch, as he is super talented and yet humble, and remained that way through his entire Idol journey. It was inspiring to watch him and great for my sons to see someone who accomplished a dream by staying true to himself. Throughout the season, Phillip paid no mind to the Hollywood “experts” who told him how to dress, how to play and sing, and how to act. He continued to focus on what he loved about it all – the music – and didn’t get caught up in all the extra noise.

Not to mention, the first thing he did after winning was run to his family and hug them. If I can raise sons like that, I’ll be happy.

The lessons my boys learned from watching Phillip Phillips? Yes, okay – rock stars are cool – but also: humility, grace, positive attitude, hard work, appreciate the moment at hand, and humbleness. And, pay no mind to your naysayers – they only fill you with fear. Listen to yourself and you’ll be golden.
