“Beautiful girl, you can do hard things” is what I will tell my daughter.
I will tell her she’s smart, and valued.
I will not talk negatively about my body in front of her. I will not talk about “diets” or feeling “fat”. I will help instill in her the courage to be herself, follow her passions and dreams, and live with integrity.
I will teach her to choose courage over comfort, and to NEVER apologize for who she is and what she believes.
Above all, I will teach her to love herself just the way she is. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
