It’s funny how conversations with our kids can become the words we need to hear ourselves.
After a bit of a rough day I found myself telling my daughter that she was strong, and brave, and awesome. It might not look the same as someone else’s strong, brave and awesome, but it is better because it is her own unique way of being strong, brave and awesome.
“Sometimes we just need to be reminded…” I told her “we just need to be reminded that we are doing ok.”
We are not alike her and I, and yet it seems I am always giving this child advice that I need to take on myself.
Sometimes I just need to be reminded of all the things I want to be, and all the things I can be and all the things I am.
We all have the potential inside us, it’s just that sometimes it gets a little buried under the hard things, the worries, the comparisons, and the idea that we can’t.
We can be brave.
We can be creative.
We can be kind.
We can be thankful.
We can be happy.
We can be ourselves… and that is enough.
