Today’s guest: The I-can’t-believe-I-get-to-call-her-my-dear-friend, QT Blogger and amazing MG/YA author, Danyelle Leafty. Danyelle and I met online a year ago or so. She’s a CP, friend, talk-me-off-the-ledge confident and I am thrilled that she is here to share a little wisdom today.
Danyelle doesn’t exactly believe in fairies, but her skepticism hasn’t stopped an odd assortment of imaginary people from bullying her into writing their stories. This is the place in which she details her journey, talks about frogs, and harnesses the occasional dragon.
Take it away Danyelle!
If I could give a child one piece of advice for life, it would be to learn how to love themselves–warts and all. I’m not talking about a Narcissus kind of love, because look where that got him: turned into a flower that was later eaten by a hippo. (They often leave that last part out. :p) I’m talking about learning to appreciate who you are and love yourself for that. Know that you are lovable. That we’re all imperfect and have things we need to improve, and that’s normal and okay. You have worth, and it’s important to learn how to see that.
I love this one! So so much.
