Dear confident 2 year old,
Dear confident 2 year old,
Don’t ever change. Your ability to walk into the world with arms open, fingers spread, grasping onto everything bit of knowledge is so endearing. Don’t let the world jade you. You won’t always be met with the same kind of tenacity you have. Keep your chin above the doubt and know that you are able to do anything you want to. Let that confidence be your compass into this strange world.
Dear kind hearted child,
Your world is so full of love you do not know how to understand anything other than just that. You have one of the largest families I know of- all of which pour never ending love your way. You can’t even begin to fathom the fact that this world you thrive in is full of hatred. Don’t ever let someone tell you that you are unloved. You will always be loved. Don’t let the one day ex-lover tell you that you are unlovable- because my child you are full of reason to be loved. Please never cry those red, hot tears of disappointment. Of embarrassment. Of fear. Of feeling less than. Because you are more than all else.
Dear gorgeous, blue eyed wonder,
Your porcelain skin will gather you some attention. It won’t always be kind attention. I know one day you will want to change that skin to dark tan like your aunt. You will hate your freckles and cover them with concealer. But never forget how beautiful you are. Your eyes shine with the brilliance you have hidden far behind them. You smile will brighten every room this house holds. Never let someone else’s opinions dampen your own opinion of yourself. When you were born your face was full of innocence. And although now you have your mischievous smile- innocence still fills you. Today you look at yourself with such happiness while you figured out how to buckle your own shoe. All this without any tan, any makeup, any altering. Remember you never need to change to be beautiful. Remember how to feel this beautiful by yourself, because one day you won’t believe me.
Lastly. Dear my almost 3 year old,
You are more than I have ever dreamed of. You are the reason for each breath I take. You are the reason I say no sometimes, and the reason we dance in the rain. You’re the light of each of my days. Another year has flown by and I am not ready for each one coming. You are my blessing, and my entire world. And I will show the way, through this strange and crazy world. Take my hand, child. The unpaved path is better not traveled alone.
