As a mom of daughters, it is important to be an example of what beauty truly means. It is your responsibility to reflect true beauty. That means accepting your laugh lines and stretch marks. It means speaking only good and loving things about your appearance. Your daughter will learn about beauty and acceptance from somewhere. Let it be from you. We love what Lake Bell has to say on the subject of beauty, aging and being an example to the next generation.
“There’s this sort of responsibility as the mother of a girl in that I want to be comfortable with aging and I don’t want her to see me afraid of that, because I don’t want her to be afraid of anything in that way. I hope to send her the message that women are beautiful, truly, at every age, and [that] there’s this tremendous privilege to age. Women like my mom have shown me you can be comfortable and confident with aging, and I hope to pass that gift on to my daughter. I also want my son to think women are badass as they get older.” - Lake Bell
Have a lovely day!
