Things I said to my daughter today after struggling with martial arts board breaking:

“Most of my job as a parent is to help you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you. You are so strong, and so tough and capable of doing anything you want. And you’re way tougher than a measly board.”

Right before bed, she wanted another shot.

First try. Crack, break.

So proud. AB92B633-EA9A-458D-89F7-5B2B3A447E16.jpg
