A Few Important Rules To Teach Your Daughters

A few important rules to teach your daughters:

• 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 & get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.

• 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’re a woman, you don’t NEED a man- but it’s ok to want the right one.

• Happiness is not a permanent state, it takes intentional effort everyday.

• Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.

• Never, ever 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, set your goals high.

• 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.

• Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no.

• Wish on stars & dandelions, then get to WORK to make them happen.

• Stay as sweet as you are.

• Fall in love with music, memories, literature, food & travel.

• Take lots of pictures along the way.

• Say Please, Thank You & I’m Sorry whenever the situation warrants it.

• Naps are for grown-ups too.

• Question everything, except your own INTUITION.

• You have enough, you are enough.

• You’re AMAZING! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you’re not. If someone does… walk away. You deserve better. Never forget that!

• No matter where you are, you can always come home… ALWAYS!!

• Say what you mean & mean what you say.

• No one will ever LOVE YOU more than I do.

• Be kind; treat others how you would like them to treat you.

• If in doubt, remember whose daughter you are and straighten your crown.
