It's not what you look at that matters....it's what you see.

Those streaming tears are not just tears -
she's sensitive, doesn't have words for her pain, and is hurting.

Her head stuffed into the nook made by where my neck meets my shoulder - I can't will her to be more outgoing because it's not her nature. She's got a soft heart, is cautious.. this will serve her well in some situations.

Her arms crossed, face scrunched - while some may label her stubborn and defiant ...... I see her being brave as she stands up for what she believes in.

I learned a long time ago (with the help of others) that it's not what you look at that matters - it's never just my daughter who is crying or who stands in front of me with her arms crossed, but it's a little girl who is encountering one of life's big experiences head on.

And when I see her in this light, I can focus on being there for her and hold space for her to be, well, her.

What do you see?





What I know for sure....

I am a mother. What's your superpower?

We all have great potential. We are not perfect, but rather perfectly imperfect. As Brene Brown says, “Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we're all in this together.”

So if we each take ownership of the path we travel (even when we’re starting from a different start line than the person next to us), with a keen eye on the end game (even on the foggiest of days), with access to the deepest inner wisdom (even when we’re making small talk) then…then maybe we’d feel and act in alignment with our strength.

You’re super powerful. And that means you have the power to give your girl what she needs, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to give loving support.

Remember your strength and use your power.
