So, I just made a little bit more of a dent in my backlog of magazines and came across an interview that Fitness Magazine did with Brooke Shields. I especially love how she answered the question, ‘Do you ever struggle with self-confidence?’ because of how she so tenderly teaches her daughter what beautiful is.
FITNESS: Do you ever struggle with self-confidence?
Brooke: I think all women do. The process of doubting ourselves starts at a very young age. Rowan used to be so sure of herself, but that’s changed since she started school. She’ll say, “Will I be more beautifuller than you, Mommy?” I don’t know where she gets that — I sure don’t put it into her head! So I’ll say, “How do you feel?” And when she says she feels good, I tell her that means she is beautiful. That’s why I’m so happy to be involved with a charity called Chain of Confidence, which honors women around the world and helps them connect with one another to share their strength and be more confident.
