From the Heart Friday: Girls

From the Heart Friday is a new weekly post on my blog where I talk about something that comes from the heart. It can be romance, friendship, family, anything. It's something that touches me, or a story from my past, or even stories from you!

This week I want to share an article a friend sent to me. I think all women should read it. Our daughters should read. It's so important and so, so true. It's a beautiful letter from a father to his daughter that made me all teary-eyed. All girls should know this.

Dear Little One,

Recently, your mother and I were searching the Internet, and Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top was “How to keep him interested.”

It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.

And I got angry.

Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”

Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)


Please head over and read the whole letter HERE. And share it :)

Have a great weekend!

  3. You will discover countless web-sites and providers that leave finding a rental residence much easier than ever before right now. Though anybody can find a condo and submit a rental software, on the other hand, don't assume all customer can be a qualified choice.
