Happy Monday! Lately things have been shaken up around here lately. Losing Tristan has been tough for Tatiana and we’ve got so much unnecessary family drama going on. Today, I wanted to share how we handle when things get rough with 22 empowering things to teach your daughter. As the days go on, I realize more and more how much my actions affect Tatiana. Not only is she a smart cookie but she has this incredible ability to read and respond to other people’s emotions. Her social awareness is spot on in most situations so as parents we have to monitor our emotions and show certain ones in moderation.
I came up with this list of 22 empowering things to teach your daughter because through everything that we’ve been through and are going through it’s important to us to teach our daughter that she is in control of her destiny.
Here’s my list:
- Words matter. Use your words to spread love and manifest your destiny.
- Trust your gut. ALWAYS.
- Embrace your difference.
- Never give up. Work hard and put in the work for everything that you want in life. You CAN have anything that you desire.
- Don’t look back.
- Create your own happiness.
- Don’t rely on others.
- Treat your body as your temple.
- Travel the world.
- Forgive others but never forget.
- Your voice matters. Speak up and have a say about the injustices in the world.
- Look towards the future.
- It’s better to give than receive.
- Aim higher than you can imagine.
- Stand for something and support a cause.
- Don’t be afraid to set boundaries.
- Protect your heart, soul, and mind.
- Follow your own path.
- Trust that everything will be okay.
- Mental health is important.
- Never stop asking questions.
- YOU ARE IMPORTANT.
“So, as you think about how to raise your daughter to be a confident and courageous woman — sure of herself and resilient under pressure — begin begin by considering where you need to practice a little more bravery yourself. Any time you tip toe around an awkward conversation, allow someone to treat you poorly, avoid taking a risk for fear of failure or let other people’s opinions matter more than your own, you’re missing an opportunity to teach your daughter to be brave.”
