Daring to Grow up.

girlstoday

When they are little, we get an occasional glimpse of their independence.  They want to pour their own cereal.  They want to pick out their own clothes.  They want to cross the street without holding your hand.

When they are little, we dream for them.

Then, just as it should be they cross that street without you, they dream their own dreams… and they make their own plans.

As I watch my daughters grow, I continue to be in awe of their fearless independence, their adventurous spirit, and their daring ability to make a difference in this world.

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
