#two years ago I bagged this one ☝️
My daughter asked me this evening, “mom why do I keep seeing Ph.D. candidate on all your paperwork and documents?
Me, I’m just pulling the bull by the horn.
Why? Do you want to become a doctor?
Me: Anything is possible child especially when you are constantly being told “ you will never amount to anything without me”
Child: I see. I want to become a brain surgeon
Me: It’s in your DNA. Reach for it child because girls with dreams become women with visions.
Having such affirmative conversations with our kids is crucial and important.
Always speak life into them.
I was always told, “ you will never amount to anything “
Me, “watch me smash those ceiling glasses”.
Still I rise.
Reach for the Stars ✨
The journey of one thousand kilometers begins with a step, take it one by one at your own pace.
Reach for your stars and never let the naysayers dim your lights.
