I want my daughters to know that what they choose to think is the most important choice they make.
I want them to choose thoughts that are kind, compassionate, and forgiving to everyone, including themselves.
I want them to know that choosing positive, happy thoughts is hard and takes a tremendous amount of practice.
I want them to know that I spent half of my life trying to do this for myself and it’s freaking hard.
I want them to know that swirl of thoughts in their head that resembles being on a carousel that never stops has an off button. They need to choose to turn it off.
I want them to understand that others mirror the love and respect they have for themselves.
I want them to choose the thoughts that feel good.
