Lesson from my Daughter

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.

Home alone but not lonely #stayathomemom

I am a stay at home mom and one of the reasons why I enjoy what I do, is because I have connected my love with my mission. I love my kids, and by trade, I am a Veteran who was a medical administrator. To satisfy a desire, I must organize and well… administer… I found lessons and crafts that teach my children but also challenged me to use my gift. I found joy in organizing the calendar, researching what they should be learning at what stage, and things of that nature. If you are an artist, find projects that allow your children to tap into the creativity you have given them. Look for ways to connect to your passion to your children so that their world can expand and in turn; you will not feel like you are trapped in a box!
