They have songs about Vanessa William and many others have done this song! Yes....it's even a metaphor in comparison to Dinner...Dessert is usually the last to be consumed because it's the BEST!

Saving the Best for Last

I speak six languages and I proud to say that I have never used this type of talk. It can be harmful in so many ways, specially when one comes from a different culture that believes in the BEST being right now!

Do you not do your best right now?
Are you not living your best right now?
Are you NOT the best you can be right now?
Do you NOT love your children the best right now?
See tomorrow is never promised but right now it is! Right here and right now everyone should be the BEST they can be.
Seriously not the BEST FOR THE LAST!
The last of what?
Your time?
Your lover?
Your children?
Your future?
Your destiny?

This was something that in my culture we never spoke of. We as culture knew that we all to the best at all times.
Your best may not be my best and we understand that, we encourage that it is at this moment your best! As as long as you are doing your best then it's good for everyone.

I never used that language with my children even during dinner time. Those words were just never spoken. It brings negativity into any conversation, it emphasizes that right not you are not doing your best but that will come when it's the last thing you do.

I recall my middle child one day when we went to see the fireworks along with a multitude of other people from our city.
A parent was saying to her child, " Wait the BEST is always at the last"!
My daughter been only six at the times, says, NO RIGHT NOW IS THE BEST!
The parent gave her a funny look.
She said to me, Mom I'm right it's right now because it's still happening and I can see it!
I was never so proud of my child at the moment. So I told her, Right now you are the BEST!

At the end of the fire works there was a huge down pour the rain was extremely heavy and they closed the show early! No grand finale of the fireworks!
Everyone was complaining about it this was the worse fireworks ever etc.
My children and I were extremely happy because we saw the best right now!
We did not need the best for last. It was the best from the start at that moment.
I wish more people would believe in themselves that right now the are the best! Don't ever say the best is for last... You are the BEST right now!
