Help Make A Difference In Someone’s Life!
It is a great and wonderful cause. Making a difference in a child’s self-esteem and to inspire them, is a pretty important thing. I and my little girl had a day together yesterday 🙂 I made it all about her! We painted our nails, I put pigtails in her adorable, curly hair and I even let her put on some of mommy’s makeup and sprayed a bit of my perfume on her! She felt like a little princess, well, because she IS one!
My daughter is almost four (yikes, where did the time go?!) and she is pretty smart. So carrying on a conversation with her is really simple and very cute! I asked her what she was thankful for and she said “my mommy” awwww.
I then asked her what things she thought were beautiful and again, she said “Mommy” but she also said: flowers, bugs (LOL), her hair, her eyes, the color purple, rainbows, and grandma! My little girl is full of everything good, beautiful and innocent and I love her to bits and pieces! And, you guessed it, SHE inspires ME. <3
From sending a word of encouragement, to setting a great example, your actions can motivate a girl to reach her full potential. Who inspired you to be the person you are today?
Now, we have all had someone inspire us. Whether it be a teacher, grandparent, friend, parent or sibling, we have had someone inspire us. The question “Who inspired you?” is the theme of the 2011 Dove Movement for Self-Esteem because they believe that by celebrating the efforts of women who are leading by example, they can inspire the next generation to reach their full potential!
I think we should all get involved in the upcoming Dove Self-Esteem Weekend, which will take place on October 21st – 23rd. Why should you? Well, for one, according to recent Dove Global research, only 11% of girls worldwide are comfortable using the word “beautiful” to describe themselves. In fact, when girls feel bad about their looks, more than 70% (age 15-17) avoid normal daily activities, such as attending school, going to the doctor, or even giving their opinion. Can you believe THAT?!
Dove believes that by helping girls build a positive relationship with beauty, they can help them reach their full potential – and that’s the goal of the upcoming Dove Self-Esteem Weekend. Still, thinking about NOT being a part of this? Please, think again and join!!!
Some ways parents can help make an example to your kids and pledge to spend an hour participating in a self-esteem activity with your child. This is a simple way to foster positive self-image and confidence in the next generation of women. All you have to do is go to Dove Social Mission, where you will find a series of tools and tips that you can use for free.
Please help and inspire girls everywhere to feel beautiful and KNOW that they CAN reach their FULL potential!!!
