"Everyone's A Little Gay," Says Honey Boo Boo [EXPERT]
3 unexpected lessons Honey Boo Boo has to offer about acceptance.

Here are 3 unexpected lessons  that I took from "Here Comes Hone Boo Boo" that can be applied to all areas of love, life and success.

1. It's OK to be different. It's ok to love and accept someone else who may be different from you. Everyone has their own way of doing things. Just because it is not a path that we would choose for ourselves, it doesn't make it wrong. They are just doing what works best for them.

2. Find the value. Instead of making assumptions and judging others for their differences, maybe we should put more effort into getting to know people and try a little harder to relate to them instead of alienating them.

3. Celebrate differences. Maybe we should be more willing to celebrate the qualities that make people unique human beings instead of being so quick to write them off.

Maybe that's the value and the message that TLC wants to send their audience airing Honey Boo Boo. Who would have thought that a seven year-old pageant queen from rural Georgia that calls herself "Honey Boo Boo" would be an advocate of acceptance? If she can get it, maybe it's time for some us grown-ups to get with the program.
