From the moment I laid eyes on you, I could see myself. Your stubborn and late entrance into this world couldn’t have been better if I had done it myself. (Which in fact, I did; sorry Mom!)
These past 4 years have been a whirlwind, and I don’t remember what life was like without you. You’ve taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined, and changed me for the better. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you because I know you will do great things. You’re a born leader, and I have no doubt that your strong-willed personality will take you far. Remember to always be kind, and treat others the way you would want them to treat you.
You’re such a smart little girl, and so full of life. I encourage you to always see the brighter side of things. Always be yourself and don’t let others bring you down. This world can be such a cruel place sometimes. There will be times you triumph, but equally, times you will fail. Don’t dwell on those failures or the past, but move on and look forward to the future.
“But don’t you worry your pretty little mind; people throw rocks at things that shine.”
If you learn anything from me, I hope it is to learn from my past mistakes. However, I am not naïve, and I know you will grow and learn at your own pace and in your own ways. Always feel like you can come to me with ANYTHING! I promise to always be open and honest with you no matter the situation or circumstance. I’ve been wrong many times in my life, so please do not be scared to come to me. I will not judge you, but only give my best advice.
My best piece of advice, and one lesson that was very hard for me to learn was – don’t change yourself for a BOY, because one day the right MAN will come along. Always remember where you came from, and keep your faith and values at the forefront. Lust is often confused for love, so stay strong and trust your gut feeling. I promise that you will find your happy ending.
“When you’re 15, and somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe them.”
And finally always remember to love and be yourself. There’s no one else like you in the world, so cherish that and thrive. Being original is the best quality to have in life. Stay true to yourself, and everything will eventually fall into place.
“Just be yourself, there is no one better.”
I love you little girl! You will always be my #1.
