As much as we try to differentiate ourselves from our parents when we are children, and even more so as teenagers, somehow little reflections of our upbringing always seem to peek through no matter what. As a parent myself now, I am  keenly aware of how true this really is. When our kids were toddlers it was shown in a game they played to mimic me. I should have been flattered, right? But having daughters who grow up watching me, imitating me, reflecting my words and seeing the world through my eyes, makes how I model my life before them not a game to be taken lightly.

I want my girls to always feel beautiful about themselves. Not because they measure up to a certain standard set for “beauty” but instead because they just feel confidently beautiful inside and out. When I think back on the times they would imitate me, most often it wasn’t the big dramatic movements they chose to copy but the small discreet mannerisms. The one or two-word phrases, the way I would brush the hair off my forehead, etc., This makes the things they hear me say about myself each day so important. What would I do if I heard my daughters saying to themselves some of the things I thought or muttered about myself as I get ready each day??

The reality is if I want my daughters to feel beautiful about themselves. I have to model the confidence of beauty for them each day. It is the daily consistency that will leave a legacy for our daughters to feel strong, confident and beautiful.
