Always Be You- A Letter To My Daughters
I’ve partnered with HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® to share a letter to my teens about health and beauty.
There have been many stages of parenthood that I have absolutely loved – one of them is the teen years. Yes, there can be some wild emotions happening, but it is pretty amazing to watch your little kids turn into confident young adults!
Parenting during the teen years is more important than ever, and I recently took a few minutes to write a letter to my daughters sharing some advice that I hope continues to keeps them on great paths.
To my amazing daughters,
You guys are rocking this time of life like nothing I've seen before. You take the bumps in the road with such grace that I am sometimes left speechless, which you know is a big deal coming from me!
I learned a long time ago that what is inside means a lot more than what you see on the outside, and I'm so happy that you two are light years ahead of me. You are both beautiful, but even more importantly, you are good people.
I want you to know that when you are feeling self-conscious and just having one of those days, remember that no one else is judging you; let’s be honest, you’re likely your own worst critic. As long as you do your best and treat others well, you have nothing to worry about. Just keep being you because you are already awesome!
Remember girls: to look and feel your best, you need to be healthy on the inside and out. Take care of your bodies and your minds — eat well, exercise and believe in yourself.
I am sharing the rest of my letter to my girls over at HealthyEssentials.com. Hop on over to read more!
