Be who you choose to be
He was small compared to others. Unusually so. And he was made fun of because of it. Even bullied.
But Elliot did not care. He chose not to listen because he knew he was destined for greatness.
Elliott wanted to be a reindeer. A famous one. One that pulled Santa’s sleigh.
The only problem was that he was a pony.
He was lucky enough to have supportive friends. Friends who stuck by when everyone else mocked him and left. Friends who encouraged him to follow his dream and who motivated him to try harder. Because they too believed that he could do anything he set his mind on.
Elliot never gave up. And his chance came, life rewarded him for his effort. He became the littlest reindeer of all. Santa’s favourite; the one who tried hardest and who was the most special. Elliot is the proof that even the underdog can achieve a lot if their heart is set on it and if they try passionately enough.
