There is nothing more important than instilling confidence in my daughters. Helping them to understand that by having faith their big dreams are possible. There is something magical and so special about a child’s imagination and while they are young I feel it is important to feed into that.
Before the big scary and cruel world has a chance to corrupt their dreams they should dance with fairy wings. They should believe that they are princesses, who are worthy of being treated with respect. If they don’t learn to have this confidence, if they don’t believe in themselves they will fall for anything. If they don’t believe that their dreams are possible, they will stop having them. They will cease to believe they are capable of making things happen for themselves.
A little star dust goes a long way. All it takes is for one person to believe in you. When it comes to my children I am that person. It starts with me building them up every day. It is my job as their mom.
I tell my girls they are beautiful, they are smart, they are important. They can be whatever they set their mind to. Don’t get me wrong, I won’t set false expectations for them.
But for now….
We will believe in magic. We will believe we are princesses. We will believe in our dreams, for they will help us fly. We will believe in ourselves. They only get one childhood…it should be full of magic.
