This Is About My Own Someday Daughter

This is about my own someday daughter

“This is about my own someday daughter when you approach me already stung stained with insecurity begging ‘Mom, will I be pretty?’ I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, no. The word ‘pretty’ is unworthy of everything you will be, and no child of mine will be contained in five letters.

You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing buy you will never be merely, pretty.”

– Katie Makkai Denver

I Love That Feeling Of Like

I love that feeling of like… having alone time but also with someone? You know when you’re sitting together quietly and seperately doing your own things. Maybe leaning against each other or softly touching. Sometimes you don’t actually wanna talk but you’re still enjoying the silent presence of that person. There’s a sense of quite, peaceful comfort.

Set Boundaries If You Invite Someone To Your Home Or In Your Life

Set Boundaries If You Invite Someone To Your Home Or In Your Life

Boundaries

If you invite someone to your home and they start breaking things and insulting your decor, you don’t have to hate them, but you wouldn’t invite them to your home anymore.

Boundaries are doing the same thing except your home is your mind. Your home is your heart. Your home is your time and your life.

Uninvite the guests who don’t know how to treat your home with respect.
