When I became a mom my whole thought process changed. It became crystal clear to me the struggles, fears, and concerns my mother endured. I gained a whole new appreciation for my mom when I gave birth to my first child. The saying goes, when you have children it feels like your heart is walking outside you chest. SO TRUE!!!!! My parents were always a lot tougher on my sister and I, than my brother. I totally get that now. I am not saying my son gets away with everything, but I can be a little more strict on my daughter. I look back on my life, now that I have a daughter, and realize I want so much better for her. I did not have a terrible life, but I did not make some of the best decisions growing up.
Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams. Everything happens for a reason, and I want you to experience what this world has to offer you. Grab the bull by its horns and ride sweet dear baby. If you do not go after what you want in life believe me it will not come to you. Dreams come true if you work hard for them. Do not let anyone take away what you want to accomplish in life.
Don’t be afraid of being alone. Time by yourself will help you grow and love the person you are becoming. You do not need anybody to make you happy. I want you to create a life you will love, and then fall in love. Travel the world and enjoy your own company.
Don’t be afraid of failure. You learn by failing, and you grow by learning from your mistakes. Keep the mindset, failure is not an option. Life is hard, but don’t let life make you hard. Show the world just how well you sparkle. Take the road less chosen and set your soul on fire with what you love to do.
Don’t be afraid to say no. You come first my dear child. It is OK to tell people no to get where you need to be in life. The only person you need to please is yourself. Don’t follow the crowd, build your own dreams.
Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion. You deserve to be heard. You are so original and smart that you can give so much to this world. Be a leader in the crowd. Sparkle the world with you thoughts, and lead by example my sweet child.
I want so much for you my sweet girl. You deserve the world and much more. I want you to be stronger than I ever could be in life. Life will throw you to the wolves, at times, but as long as you get up and come back leading the pack. I want more for you, than I ever did myself. I will always be your biggest fan, and be here to tell you to get back up and keep going. I can not wait to watch you smash all your dreams.
