BE the bud and then BE the flower, but remember: Flower not better than bud.
Exactly what I explained to my son this morning when he was complaining about being a safety patrol. I told him that things are not always about him and that it's about helping someone else. I let him know that being a safety patrol is a privilege denied to most and that he should have a positive outlook on it. :-)
