Searching for My Crown

  1. I loved the pictures of Punky in all her princess outfits. Unfortunately for me, I do not think my mom supported the “princess mentality” in me the oldest of her girls since I can not remember EVER having a princess outfit or a tiara as a little girl…the closest I had was my wedding day when I finally felt like “pretty, pretty princess”.
    As I have grown older, and taken on more and more in my life, I always seemed to think about the crown I will earn in heaven…which subsequently makes me want to take on even more so that finally I will have earned the right to also wear a crown.
    Maybe the time for a crown is now…..

    Almost brings tears to my eyes… I am familiar with waking up and realizing that I used to have that royal mentality as a little girl  but experiencing LIFE has made it disappear. When my parents split I went from being a princess to a second in command at a young age. My mom depended on me and i had to grow up fast. Now at 25 I am very appreciative of the things I have learned from her. I feel like i was prepared somewhat for LIFE, but a voice inside me still wishes I could be a little girl with no worries and standards so high, so fit for me to live the best life. To be the best me! What is stopping me from getting my crown back? Why did i ever let that magic go?

      I’m so sorry you had to go through that. Just thinking back to that time as a small child and those feelings you had is really helpful, I think, to beginning to get yourself back where you need to be.

    I love your perspective on Beth’s talk this week. It does break my heart that my daughter might feel like she isn’t a princess when “life” happens to her.  I’m going to do my best to make sure she remains a (responsible, kind, loving, well disciplined) princess. 
    The part that struck me the most about the talk is that we ARE REALLY PRINCESSES.  It’s not just for pretend!  There is a kingdom in heaven with a KING and a THRONE and we are going to go there and really be PRINCESSES and KNIGHTS and PRINCES!  How exciting!  That really struck me and I need to remember it as “life” continues to happen.

    It must be a generational thing.  Even when I was a little girl, I never thought I was a princess.

      But I bet you thought you were going to be someone special, right? Almost all children have that sense that they are destined for great things, whether they think they’re a princess, a future astronaut, or a cowboy.

    “I resolved to remind her in every way I can as she gets older that she
    is truly special. Treasured. Loved deeply. Filled with noble attributes.
    Destined to do great things”

    This makes me think of my relationship with my son.  Even now that he’s 21, I let him know how much he is loved and treasured.  He’s a good person with a good heart and a good head on his shoulders.

    I think I always had people who loved me and believed in me growing up so I always wanted my son to know that feeling as well.

      Agreed. I make a conscious effort to tell my children how smart and good and loved they are– and to hug and kiss them– as often as possible. I don’t think any parent can ever overdo it in that department.  🙂

    Very beautiful! It’s true. We must take care of ourselves in order to take care of the ones we love 🙂
