One of the biggest lessons in my “40 something” years of life, that I have learned, is to never be a follower…always be a leader. Set trends and never be someone that you are not. Be yourself and be true to yourself. Be the best person you can possibly be and never let anyone “second-rate” that. Love who you are and the skin you are in…own it… all of it.
I used to always doubt myself when I was younger and now that I have children of my own I never want them to doubt themselves. I want their self-esteem to shine and withstand anyone who tries to break their spirit. I wrote a piece to my daughters and I hope they listen to my words and know that I will always want what is best for them.
