send her your love

Dear Wonderful YOU,

Einstein believed that our dream time was more important than our awake time. (He also believed that creativity was more important than intellect. I especially LOVE that!)

Well, I had a dream last night. In my dream strangers walked up to me and said things like:

Tell them they are creative no matter what anyone tells them.
They are enough without changing themselves.
The world needs them to be strong and stay true to themselves, despite the mixed messages of our culture.

I heard so many voices and saw so many faces –unknown to me, but known by my heart as real people who care deeply. I dreamed about all the amazing people who visit this site in my community, across North Carolina, around the US and around the world. Many of you may not have a daughter but I know you still care about girls and have something important to say to them.

I woke up feeling restless. All day today I have thought about my dream and the visitors that find our site. I’ve been trying to figure out what it means.  Dreamtime combined with awake thinking has led me to recognize that EVERYONE has something valuable to say to girls of today, girls who come to my program, AND to girls around the world.

If you are reading this–whether you have a daughter or not–please consider leaving a message on this new page I just created called “Send her your love.”  Tell her how you feel about the role of girls, about her being true to herself, about her value and importance in our world. This can be a message that you wish you had been told when you were younger. There is no right or wrong, just share from your heart.

I will gather all the submissions, post them, and when we have lots, I’ll make a collage or create some type of visual that I can share here on the site and on the Creative GIRL Facebook page. I will also come up with a way that every girl receives your messages, either in a book or big letter.

in gratitude for dreams, thoughts, creativity and sharing,


One thought on “send her your love

  1. The only thing you need to be happy in life is to truly love yourself and others, and if you do that, everything else will fall into place around you. Love yourself with all your imperfections. Love yourself in spite of your mistakes. Love yourself when times are good and even more when times are hard. Love yourself so much that you shine. Love yourself and listen to your own calling. Those whispers of the heart tugging at you to follow a dream or a path or goal. Listen to them! Respect others and try not to judge – everyone has a background or story that shapes who they are. Be compassionate. Do your life’s work with passion and love. Find a soulmate who respects you and let’s you be yourself, 100%, and love them so much and so good that you both shine. Love yourself first because only you can decide how to feel. Only you get to decide whether you will be joyful, even in the darkest of times. When you love yourself, and when you love others, you have the power to heal humanity. Make love the driving force behind all you do, and see the best in everything. If you do, you will always have good friends around you and if you ever need help in a crisis they will care so well for you that you’ll make it through. Love is the best medicine, and the best feeling in the whole world. Without love, life will never feel good. So make it your life’s work to love your life deeply, and passionately and carve your own path based on doing the things that make you feel glad to be alive. Let your heart be your compass and you’ll never be lost. x x x x x x x x

be creative, be kind...
