"Picture yourself when you were 5. How would you treat her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self."  —  Kris Carr
