Favorite Quote #7

famous people quotes favorite

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.

    1. I have no idea why this is here. It was a draft when I was going to use your quote and then I deleted it when I found another. How strange :-/ You can delete this from your comments if you like lol. So sorry
      I clearly have no idea what I’m doing. I shouldn’t be allowed near a computer 😉

  2. I couldn’t agree more, Trista! I posted a quote with the same message a few weeks back because I really feel that it’s important to love yourself the way you are. I too used to doubt myself all the time, and it wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned to not care what others think. Your kids are so fortunate to have a mom that will instill these values in them! Thank you so much for linking up with #candidcuddles!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful comment Katie. I truly appreciate that 🙂 we are so hard on ourselves when it comes to caring what others think…I too had to just let go of that and realize that I love myself for me. I want to set great examples for my children. Thanks so much for hosting one of my favorite linkys 😉
