what do you bring to the table?
What are you bringing to the table? Do you realize that who you are has power? OK, picture yourself sitting around a table with a group of your friends. From the time you get out of the shower to the moment you sit down to the table, your energy, your emotions and what you are thinking about will directly impact that dinner. It will impact how you make your friends feel and your conversations. What happened to you that day, positive or negative, you carry with you. You bring those feelings and experiences and questions to dinner tables. Both small dinner tables with friends and larger dinner tables in the form of school and your community. I want to encourage you to embrace opportunities to own up ( to how you are really feeling) and fill up ( others cups by being nice :). Own up by being real at your small dinner table with friends. If you had a bad day or something happened at school…talk about it! Set the tone at the table and…BE REAL. Fill up someones cup by listening. By bringing over the extra chair if someone doesn’t have a seat. Be known at the table for being the girl who is comfortable in her own skin, real and kind. Then, being real and authentic at the bigger table is simple!
It’s your choice, to be this girl. The truth is it’s empowering and its contagious. Not to mention the quickest way to gain confidence and build real sisterhood. We all want real confidence and real friends, right? So, what are you bringing to the table, besides an extra chair? And good food? Real talk. Talk that inspires openness, honesty and happy girls because the authenticity and confidence within you creates it naturally. And then? You and your friends will leave with full hearts and full stomachs.
