Dear Little Feisty One,
There are many things I could tell you about your adult life - from attending college and doing the damn thing in graduate school, to moving away from your family/friends and attaining a fantastic career all before you hit the age of thirty. I could tell you that your life will be full of adventures, and how you will meet amazing people from all corners of the earth who will love and inspire you. I could tell you that you will get bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and you will find yourself exploring all your many talents and interest which will yield positive success in every aspect of your life. I could tell you all these things; however, I feel it would serve you best if I focus more on sharing prolific advice with you, because my dear, life is not going to be a walk in the park .
Now little one, there will be times when the cold brutal winter and stormy weather will hit you and knock you off your feet—(meaning life will get really tough). There will be days when things will become unbearable; when you will feel like your life is going nowhere, and all you want to do is crawl back into your mother’s womb. There will be times when you feel angry, confused, lost and in turn you will isolate yourself from all you’ve ever known. I know you will feel terrified, and doubt your abilities to ever attain the life you deserve.
Now when it comes to romantic relationships, there will be lots of “frogs” chasing after you, disguising themselves to be your “knight in shining armor”, but my dear, do not allow yourself to be blinded and distracted. If you look clearly, you will realize that they are only “dorks in aluminum foil”. When you see those red flags, run my dear, run far and stay away from them; nothing good will come out of being involved with men who have ill intentions. Doing this will save you from a lot of unwarranted heartaches and disappointments. Remember to always put yourself first, love yourself like no other. Believe that you have inestimable worth that comes from your creator. And remember, you don’t need anyone--especially not a man to validate you as a woman; you are loved and valued. You are perfect exactly as you are in your complete authentic self. You have limitless worth and value. Oh, my dear, you can’t even begin to fathom this, but you are worth dying for! With this in mind, be conscious and selective!
Little one, I need you to understand how much I love you. You are a treasured gift! As long as you stay positive and put God first in all you do, you will live a life full of purpose and happiness. You will have the opportunity to experience things only a few do, and I look forward to the great and marvelous things you will accomplish and attain.
With High Hopes,
Three women going through life.
