Dear Moms With Daughters,

    You’re my Rockstar. I will work hard every day to be a positive role model, great mom and confidence-building coach. Thank you for all you do but more importantly who you are:
    a confident, positive, appreciative young lady.
    Love, MOM ?

    Love this Hope Linker! Keep shining bright like your mama! You have such great thoughts and beautiful ability in sharing them – keep blogging! ?

    A great blog Hope!! I try to raise my girls to be confident, unfortunately other girls see confidence as being cocky and full of oneself. It’s not easy raising kids these days. But I still want them to be confident, the friends will come and go but there is a very bright future!!

      Thanks for reading, Ericka! I’m sure you’re doing a great job. I can’t imagine – parenting seems like a tough job. Continue to leave a positive impact on your kiddos!

    Thanks Hope. It never hurts to be reminded every day we are doing something good and to feel good about ourselves. It is a work in progress for me every day. You have a great role model.

    Nice blog Hope. It is a good reminder. This is a subject I have difficulty with myself. I try to be positive for others but I don’t always give myself enough credit. It is a work in progress!

    Hope, enjoy your mom! Appreciate all that she dies for you. I walked into this year not knowing that at this time in my life my mom would not be here. My mom died 3 weeks ago today. I’m 21 years old, and I’ll be 22 later this month. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer late spring and was taking chemotherapy and complications from it caused her to die. Never take anything your mom says or does for granted. She loves you. I remember that even though sometimes my mom complained about the way she looked, she always complimented me and told me not just that I was beautiful but that I was smart, and would have a great future etc. Like your post, I not only think it’s important for mothers to be careful saying negative things about themselves but I feel it’s also necessary to reassure your daughter’s that they are beautiful and have a lot of good qualities.

    In a world of wishing for perfection you brought attention to focusing on the the best we have and are giving. We all need to keep our focus on the positive. Good job and thanks for the reminder. I did send a photo to Sarah this am, “Are you sure this looks alright?” ?

    This is SOOO good and so important!!!

  10. I really love this. It is so true that having low self esteem is more acceptable and that is not okay.

    We were just having such a conversation yesterday among coworkers. Only we were pointing out what we didn’t like about our bodies. Shame on us!!! Thanks for reminding me to remind myself and others for the good things about ourselves. Homework for next week, make us all write a list of what we like about ourselves!! Thanks for the blog Hope!
