Raising Little Leaders

Events & Travel
3

I have been having a hard time putting this post together, I am not sure why — maybe it’s insecurities or maybe it is the lack of feeling that I have the right words to say. Throughout the day I have read a lot of quotes and encouragement from women encouraging other women through social media and love seeing the positive impact from it, this has lead to me to reflect on motherhood, especially on my role as a mother to a daughter.

Reflecting back on the woman before us, the leaders and the rule breakers, I am also looking at my daughter and how I can raise her to be strong, confident and driven by her own passions today. There are days where I wonder how one could even start to accomplish this and then days where I am very certain that because of the way that I walk through my life she will learn, obtain and grow even stronger. It is about having confidence in ourselves while raising our littles and being conscious that they very very dearly look up to us for that strength and courage.

Everyday is a new day and everyday I am reminding myself of not only the impact that I am making on those around me (whether it be through social media influence or not), but the impact that I am making within my immediate family. Today as a Woman, a Wife, and as a Mother I am looking my hormonal pregnancy insecurities in the face and reminding myself of all of these things.

I had tears in my eyes this morning as I read through the news article listing the victims from the Florida school shooting. I just can’t imagine. Those families, friends, coworkers, everyone. We are all affected by what happens around us within the world. Sending so much love to all today especially.
