Last week my six year old daughter after getting out of time out asked me, "do you still love me?" After I assured her up and down that I love her all the time she said, " you mean you believe in me?" I was amazed at her insight and smartness to connect those two concepts. Of course, I went into a large list of what I did believe about her and what she would grow up to be. The conversation lingered with me that day and that night I shared with my hubs. He uttered not even an actual word, but just a sound, and I knew, we both knew the significance and wisdom of Gwen to ask that, and what that meant for both of us as parents and people to guide her but not only look at our lives.
The question hit me in the face by surprise and immediately I recognized it like an old friend…
Do you believe in me?
#whereisshesgettingthis #isshegettingthisfromme! (ahh – real mom moment)
Do I even believe in myself?
I ask that because here is what I’m up to this year. I am getting ready to dive into the biggest adventure imaginable and create the life and work that I love this year!!! SOOOO, the flip side of that is CAN I Really do that?? Can I really retire from weddings, and create senior portrait work that people love!? THE ANSWER is YES! … but the doubts can creep up in my brain. #thestruggleisreal
Are they creeping up in your brain too? SOOO my question for you is this?? What are your BIG Dreams?
Are they wild?
Will they take guts?
Are they pushing you to really live?
What are YOU believing about yourself As you choose to follow them?
That you are amazing!
That you can DO IT!
That YOU are enough!
I want to hear?
#seniors what are you believing about yourself as you finish up this fun year making memories - or as you wait acceptance letters - or as dream about college?!? at Naperville, Illinois
