I love the Pin that says,
“What would the child you once were
think of the adult you had become?”
I was pretty sad as a little girl. I hadn’t thought about this til I found this one photo of me a few years back at a great park we used to go to and make campfires and go sledding in Winter when I was a child. I am about 5 or 6, I think, and I am sitting there, just looking. It’s dusk. I look so sad.
So, this saying means a lot to me, because I don’t want my children to be sad. Not all the time, underneath, sad.
Here are a few other faves of mine:
“it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” ~e.e.cummings
“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.”
“Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them.” (my 14yo son actually liked this one)
“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”
“Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.” ~Charles Dickens
“Remind yourself it’s ok not to be perfect.“
I’d love to post them because they are all prettied up and have great graphics with them, but without permission, I just won’t. You can find them on Pinterest, though!
