Every Friday I have a friend who takes part in a 5 Minute Friday exercise. A single word is given and you must write on that word for 5 minutes. No more. No less. No editing and no second thoughts- you’re just to write.
This week the word is Mighty. Here I go…
Mighty is what I hope my children feel as they get older. Mighty is how I feel now. I’m loving my new job- I feel useful and smart and appreciated and that makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel mighty. And I want my children to know how it feels be empowered.
I hope the Hubs and I give the kids countless gifts as they get older- the gifts of joy and love and kindness and strength. But empowerment- that’s on the top of the list. I want my kids to be self- assured to do (or not to do) anything. I want them to let peer pressure be something that roles off their back. I want them to be secure enough in their selves to say No or Yes when ever they feel it’s right. I want them to know that the world is theirs, waiting for them to discover. I want them to know that no matter what life throws at them, they’ll be fine. More than fine- they’ll thrive.
I want them to feel mighty. Because I do and it’s amazing.
