My Sweet Baby Girls,
Don’t be so anxious to grow up. By the time you are grown you will wish that you enjoyed being a kid that much longer. Being “grown” comes with a lot of responsibilities the world doesn’t quite prepare you for. Listen to your parents, you will always need them despite what you think. You only get to be a kid once, learn all you can and enjoy the ride.
Enjoy life. In the words of Drake, “You only live once.” Do things you only imagined in your wildest dreams, take trips, meet people, fall in love. Make your life here on earth as magical as possible. However, remember to be responsible. Its okay to make mistakes, they cannot be avoided, but make smart mistakes. So many people make mistakes that are detrimental.
You are BEAUTIFUL!!! Inside and out. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The negativity will come from many places, the hardest being from family. Brush it off, hold your head up high and keep pushing. You know you are beautiful and that’s all that matters. Anyway, God would never put you through something that he did not equip you to handle.
You are a queen. Your elegance radiates for miles. Trust me, you will have your share of haters. That is not your problem, keep doing you, but always be kind. Be kind because you never know what others are going through and they don’t need you to be hard on them. A listening ear is what most people want, learn to listen to understand, not just to respond. Sometime it may feel like the kind gesture is not reciprocated, but character is something people admire. Do it because its right not because you want something out of it.
Smile and be happy. Not only will it help you age slower, its contagious. Smiling will help you feel better and live longer. Hey, you never know, your smile may make you the superhero of someone’s day. A smile speaks a million languages and a thousand words. It brings happiness to others and if you smile enough you will be happy more often as well.
Fall in love. You will be lead to believe that you can only fall in love once. I am saying otherwise. You will not fall in love with every boy you meet or date. And I hate to break it to you, but half of them are not going to “love” you back anyway.The good thing is, you will fall in love with so many other things, books, places you’ve visited, puppies and clothes. Each love being slightly different than the other but love none the less. There is enough love to go around.
However with love comes heartache. There will be a lot of that in your life as well. It is inevitable, but like most things it will come to pass. It will be hard, but think of it as a lesson to life that will help you go that much further. It is not about how many times you fall, but if you get back up. You can take your time getting up, just make sure you get up.
It is okay to ask for help sometime. Even the most independent people need a helping hand. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and be willing to lend a hand too. People will remember that.
Last but not least, remember you are not made of this world but for this world. You were put on this earth to make a difference, even if it is a small one. You are here to speak, spread, and live greatness. Always look forward and be the best YOU that YOU can be. Set examples, live and ultimately never stop growing!!
