Teaching Our Daughters Perseverance + Melody Ellison American Girl Doll Giveaway
I have three daughters and as I watch my daughters grow up, I realize I want more for them in life. There is so much I want them to learn. I know that I want my girls to never give up, especially it comes to their talents, their passions, their voice and I never want them to settle.
It’s easy to give up when you have no one there supporting you. I want to always be there for my daughters. I want to show them that I am their #1 cheerleader. I never want them to have fear of doing things on their own. Perseverance comes from strength and sometimes they’ll need to pull that from ME!
When I was a kid, I wanted to give up on so many things. However, it was my mom that told me to keep going and give it my best. Giving up was an option, but I persevered and didn’t give up. I want my daughters to understand that giving up is one thing, but when they keep going, the benefits are much greater.
There are lots of things that I have failed at during my life but I never gave up trying. Things may not have gone my way, but I persevered. As parents, we need to be the example of perseverance. My daughters look up to me and I want to demonstrate that even though sometimes life gets hard, they can’t give up. I love the saying that “when things get tough, the tough get going.”
