Hooray it’s today! Wednesday mantra: today I am excited about everything ✨Trying out this mantra since there are a few things I’m not looking forward to today, so we’ll see if this helps! Thank you to @ode_tomytravels for this gorgeous pic from her #valensole trip! #provence#france#girlaroundworld
Self confidence is a super power. Once you start believing in yourself, Magic starts happening.
I was not a confident kid, so now that I have a daughter I read everything I can on raising confident girls (if anyone has any recommendations, please let me know!). One thing that helped me was traveling. It built my confidence and opened my eyes in ways I didn’t know were possible (you guys know the power of travel!😄). And while my daughter won’t be doing any solo trips for at least seventeen years, one thing that keeps popping up as a thing to do is camping. Apparently camping builds confidence. Unfortunately I hate camping. I love the great outdoors, but want a comfy bed and hot shower to bookend my day. However, I want a confident girl more. My husband has also been begging me to go for years and I want my girl to know that her mom will try anything so we packed up our stuff (A LOT of stuff when you go with a one year old!) and spent three days in the wilderness. It rained most of the time but was an amazing family experience. And it made me realize that I am someone who will try anything but I am also confident enough now to say how I feel, and I would still prefer to pack a carryon bag and hop on a plane to explore a new destination than sleep in a tent, but I will keep on doing things that build up my baby girl, so if she one day decides she loves camping, then mama will go. 💕💕 I also brought my pink @gastonluga backpack on the trip and got to test it to the limits. I’ve used it for work, and as a diaper bag, and now it’s survived camping. This bag can do anything! And it’s pink. What more is there to say?? 😄💕 For my Girl Around World crew, you can click on the link in my bio and use code girlaroundworld for a 15% discount. 📸:@steveklit83#ad#gastonluga#doitwithGL#girlaroundworld
