TO OUR DAUGHTERS

🌟 You were born made of softness, sweetness and love, but with a will so strong it could bend iron – despite what society may tell you, you don’t have to lose one or the other. Keep them all, they are yours. Aren’t you blessed?

🌟 Your super-power in this life, is that little voice inside of you that tells you when something isn’t right, listen to it. Likewise, listen to it when it’s saying yes yes yes.

🌟 Your self-worth is controlled by you, only you. Never put it in someone else’s hands.

🌟 You are equal to, not better than, but equal to, anyone else you may ever come across in this life. Never feel inferior.

🌟 Never lose your joy. No matter how serious your ambition, or how driven your path is, remember we are here for only a short time and life is to be lived and loved.

🌟 Comparison will not propel you ahead, rather it will keep you back from the real treasures in this world. Stop comparing. Better still, never start.

🌟 Fear is an instinct but unlike your inner voice it can be misleading. Never let fear hold you back from the wonders you could see.

🌟 Do not let society, or anyone, tell you what beauty looks like. If you feel beautiful, you are. If you see beauty, it’s there. Your beauty is an emalgimation of everything that makes you you, and it is utterly unique. Embrace that, early.

🌟 You don’t have to choose between being a warrior, a princess, a lady or a woman. You can be all of them in one and most women are, every day. Strong isn’t the word; we have the ability to be all things to all people but remember yourself, put yourself first sometimes too.

🌟 Lastly, it is okay to not be okay. It is even better if you talk about it. Darkness cannot shine through light, but light can shine through darkness. You can be amazing and admired whilst admitting your weaknesses and discussing your fears and anxieties.  Even more so in fact.

Oh and….never let anyone dull your sparkle, you were born to shine.
