I’m a mother of three and if there’s anything that I want to teach my girls, it’s not to wait to be validated by anyone. I want them to validate themselves. To find out for themselves who and what they are. As I’ve learned to do. For example, I want them to decide for themselves if they are smart or not, and not let the rest of the world decide.
If you do not think that you are smart, then perhaps you are the smartest of them all. And you if you think that you are, that’s great, because that’s exactly what I’m talking about.
A young woman should be able to say “I am smart” Or even “I am beautiful”.
We’ve created a society in which it has become taboo for one to speak richly of oneself. You are considered conceded and full of yourself if you’re heard. Well I don’t think so! I think we should encourage people to believe in themselves. I believe in the power of self-confidence.
I’m on fire !
