Teach your daughters… life lessons

A few important rules to teach your daughter(s):
• Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.
• It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
• If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.
• Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.
• Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
• 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
• You are a woman, you do not need a man, but you can absolutely enjoy your life with a good one.
• Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
• Never walk through an alley alone.
• Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself.
• Can’t is a cop-out.
• Hold your heroes to a high standard. Be your own hero.
• If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.
• Never lie to yourself.
• Your body, your rules.
• If you have an opinion, you better know why.
• Practice your passions.
• Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no.
• Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen.
• Stay as sweet as you are.
• Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food and far-off places.
• Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
• Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.
• Naps are for grown-ups, too.
• Question everything, except your own intuition.
• You have enough. You are enough.
• You are amazing! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does….walk away. You deserve better.
• No matter where you are, you can always come home.
• Be happy and remember your roots, family (and those you choose to be family) is EVERYTHING.
• Say what you mean and mean what you say.
• Be kind; treat others how you would like them to treat you.
• If in doubt, remember whose daughter you are and straighten your crown. 👑.
