My Amazing Daughter

100_8527

She knows who she is at an age where I struggled with what to wear to school. (I was often joked for my choices).

She wears what she wants to wear, and does so with pride, at an age when I struggled with my voice. (I was afraid to speak).

She says what she feels at an age when I struggled with standing up for myself. (I often just sat down).

She stands up for herself and her friends at an age when I struggled with math and had a tutor. (Math was a “four-letter word”).

She does her math homework like a champ at an age when I felt scared of my own shadow. (That took over 30 years to shed).

She stands up to her fears at an age when I struggled with wanting to be anyone but me. (That, too, took over 30 years to begin to shed).

My amazing daughter at 8 is herself, fearlessly. Her mother, at 40, is learning to just be. Oh the things she is teaching me!

Namaste.
