Favorite #Quotes Inspiration Daughters Strength

I have two of these lovely creatures.  And as much as I want to protect them from the world, I know that I must also teach them about it.  

~About the good, the bad, and the ugly that exists within it.~  

~To not be afraid of who they are and to always strive to be the best person they can be.~ 

~To always love themselves and to love those around them who cherish who they are.~

~To always be a great friend, listen instead of just speak, but speak up when needed.~

~To defend themselves against those who will be out to destroy their spirit.~

~To get back up, brush themselves off, and try again…never ever give up.~

~To always know they can rely on themselves when there’s no one else to rely on.~

~To be strong, fierce, and independent women.~

This is a part of the fabulous weekly linky #candidcuddles that I enjoy linking up to every week with my friends:

  1. I think this quote and everything you wrote is so beautiful. It is so hard raising children to be fierce independent adults when there is so many others trying to push them down. I am visiting from #CandidCuddles

  2. I love this quote! It’s so important to raise our children to be strong, independent but also to be honest, compassionate, to stand up for themselves when necessary, and understanding. These are the things I strive to teach to my boys. Your girls are lucky to have such a strong mom to teach them how to be strong women. Thanks for on #Candid Cuddles

  3. Trista, this is one of my favorite blog posts ever! Seriously. Every single one of your “topics” on teaching your daughters is spot on and exactly how I want to raise my little girl. You said everything so perfectly. It’s like you read my mind and wrote it on your blog! I’ll be pinning this to my parenting board as well as the Candid Cuddles board! ❤ Thank you so much for linking up with #candidcuddles! xx

    1. I think every mother can truthfully say that 😉 I just want to try and teach them to be a “better” version of myself. I have grown up dealing with my own insecurities about everything only to realize, now at 40 something, that I should have been embracing myself this whole time. Thank you for popping over for a visit! I love #candidcuddles.
