quotes difference being a tomboy raising girls
I have just fallen in love with this picture this week and decided to put a quote with it.

My youngest has not been able to play sports with her two older siblings because she wasn’t old enough yet.  I heard about a Spring dance class and decided that I wanted to sign her up. She’s my girlie girl and loves anything pink, purple, and covered with princesses and sparkles.

I didn’t want her older sister to feel left out so I asked her if she too wanted to try dance.  She is the opposite of her sister and wants nothing to do with long hair, pink, purple, and refuses to wear anything that remotely resembles princesses or sparkles.  As a matter of fact if it’s not a super hero it doesn’t even get looked at.

I explained that the class was ballet and that it would be all girls and wearing pink would be a requirement.  To my surprise, she still said yes.

Yesterday we went to the city for a “fun day” and while there went to a dance store to buy the ballet slippers.  She put them on and I asked her again if she was sure she wanted to do this.  She looked at the pink ballet shoe on her foot and looked up at me and replied, without hesitation, “yep”.

When she wanted to cut her hair I worried that she would get teased about looking like a boy.  Because even at that young of an age kids, especially girls, can be so cruel.  

While sitting at the playground one day I overheard a little girl ask her if she was a boy or a girl in which my all of 4 years old daughter replied “Does it matter?” I knew then, at that exact moment, that she was fine with who she was and didn’t care what others thought.  

I realized…that somewhere…she had learned to dance to the beat of her own drum.

Proud mommy of an irreplaceable tomboy,

Quote Of The Week ~ April 17, 2016

I guess there’s quite a fine line between someone’s opinion of you and their critiquing of who you are.

It’s kind of like the old saying of “There’s no such thing as bad press”.  

I’ve always considered myself pretty good at taking constructive critisicm.  I believe one cannot grow without knowing if others think they are good at something or need improvement.  As humans there are always ways to improve ourselves.

It’s called living.

And I would rather be noticed for saying, doing, and being me than to be a nobody.

Quotes Inspirational Self Healing

For the past few weeks I have taken some time to really work on myself.  My blog has suffered a bit but my personal self and my family come first.  I have had to work through some issues…which I am still currently working on and dealing with the best I can.

Without me being healthy and loving myself, it reflects in my attitude towards those around me in a very negative way.  No one is perfect, but as long as we keep trying to mend and work on what we feel is broken, then that’s all we can expect from ourselves.

Best We Can Be Quote Inspiration

In the midst of some of the searching of my self-worth and where I am and where I want to be,  I have discovered a part of me that I knew existed…she had just been tucked away for a while.  I still have a lot to work on but just continuing to do so is what’s important.  Not only for me but for those who are most important to me.  Change is good and it’s been a long time coming for me.

Stay Tuned….
