Lesson from my Daughter

current event, encouragement, heart and mind, mom, Mom Life, SLiM Life

My daughter taught me to love myself. Birthing a beautiful chocolate princess with cotton coils and a dimpled smile opened my eyes to the beauty that is me. The way she studies how I hold my shoulders curve my lips and tame my hair brought awareness to how I carried myself.

 I had to think …

 “Am I teaching my daughter to like herself or love herself?”

“Am I putting up with my looks or appreciation my looks?”

Before my daughter I had not considered the importance of presenting myself to the world. Not as a performance, but in an intentional way that says, “I am important, I am loved, and I deserve respect.”

While I compliment my daughter and show her love, I realized that the most effective way to teach her self-worth and confidence is to SHOW self-worth and confidence.
