Something beautiful we would want every little girl to know.
cam is working as a cabin captain at a summer camp for some younger girls this month, and when she was filling out her cabin captain sign up packet one of the questions was:
“What is something you would want every young girl to know to help her through life?”
we thought it was a super sweet question. we’ve got little nieces and we hope to be bright lights in their lives, and it’s also one of our biggest wishes that every little girl could know how beautiful and amazing she is, soooo we thought we’d all do a little inspired thinkin’ and each of us answered cam’s camp packet question.
what about y’all? what’s something you would want every little girl to know to help her through life?
fall madly, passionately, and crazy in love… first with yourself. with your spirit, your personality, your unique gifts, your body, your passions, and everything about you. next fall in love with life and all the amazing things you want life to be. then if you’re filled with that love, your energy will draw someone to you who is full of love themselves, and they will fall in love with who you are, and what you love about life. and in turn, you can fall madly in love with them, who they are, and what they love about life :).
people will be unkind to you, be kind anyways, because you want to bring kindness into the world. people will lie to you, be honest anyways, because when you look in the mirror you want to see someone living in truth. people will betray you, be loyal anyways because you want to live an honorable life. be filled with good things no matter what happens in life, because it’s who you want to be.
your eyes, your smile, your laugh, your spirit, the way you talk, the beautiful ideas you hold in your head… all of it makes you you, and you are the only you in the whoooole world. no one will ever sparkle how you sparkle or shine how you shine. so please always know how so very special you are, and nothing in the world can ever take your special from you.
be passionate about everything. the beautiful people in your life, the amazing places you get to see, the incredible experiences you get to have – all of it. the 4 of us girls believe that passion is the purest form of gratitude. feeling passion for things is like your heart and soul are saying “thank you” from the truest place. so go wherever you go with all your passion.
