A Letter to My Future Daughter


To my Future Daughter,

At this point in time we have not met but I can assure you that I already love you, and when we do meet, I will love you more - more and more each day. You will never go a day without feeling loved, that is my promise to you.

As you grow older you will come to realize that not all people are good but don't let this interfere with who you are or how you treat others. Be honest, be true, and be kind. Respect yourself and others around you. Have an opinion and be free to express it. Never let someone else control your right of expression. Self-respect is one of the most important qualities to possess and never forget that. Love yourself and others around you; but most importantly, love yourself first.

I want you to know that you are beautiful and that you are strong. Don't ever let anyone tell you differently. Never forget that you are human and it is okay to feel pain. We have all gone through it, mama knows. Life is not easy and I don't expect it to be for you either. In fact, I hope that you do go through highs and lows in life because without struggle, you will not find strength. I want you to take all of your negative experiences and use them as fuel to find your inner peace and grow. Whatever it is that you go through, I will be there to help you through it. I will not judge you - I have once been there.

I hope that you feel comfortable to make decisions on your own. Do not regret the bad ones because they hold far more value than you can ever imagine - they will teach you things that the good ones couldn't. Do not feel a need to always say yes. Being kind doesn't mean saying yes. Sometimes saying no has the power to set you free. You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Nothing good comes easy and if it entails work, don't run away just put your big girl pants on and say "bring it on". You got this baby girl, I promise you.

I want you to feel secure and in saying that, I want you to know that being alone is okay. Your worth does not depend on another person. You should feel whole on your own. I hope that you can be content and proud doing things yourself and if you ever need a helping hand, mama will be there. Hold your own. Don't you ever rely on anyone else but yourself. Be independent. Be assertive.

Be who you are and never let anyone control you. No one possess you. You possess you. You should never be ashamed of who you are or where you come from. Never change for anyone but yourself. You are perfect just the way you are and anyone who cannot appreciate your worth is not worth having in your life. Don't fear closing doors and opening new ones. People will come and go just like the days do. Only the good ones stick around and those are the ones who will feed your soul.

One day you will meet someone - boy or girl it does not matter to me. Love is love and I hope that you can embrace that value in the same way that mommy does. I will love you either way. He or she will make you happy, sad, angry, and anxious. It's totally normal, my sweet girl. You will experience heart break and that is okay too. Not everyone is for you but always bear in mind that when you find the right one, you will know and it will be magical. If I have learned anything from past relationships, it's that many things are temporary. You will feel that he or she meant the world to you and then wake up months later realizing that everything you once thought of them was shattered over temporary emotion and misconceived judgements. When it's real, you will know. When they are real, you will know. Mommy has been there, baby girl and I promise you, it will get better.

You will change your mind a million and one times and that is okay. I encourage it. Never settle, princess. Chase your dreams no matter how far they may seem to be. The distance is far shorter with hope and ambition. Even though you may not always make the right choice, embrace the consequences if there are any. You have to make mistakes in order to learn from them. No one is perfect and you should always be open to failure as you need this in order to one day succeed. This will only make you stronger in mind and in character.

Be patient and be kind. Never treat Person A any different from Person B. We are all human and no one is perfect. If someone approaches you with little respect, respond with more respect. Always and I mean, always be the bigger person, no matter how little you may feel at times. No one, other than yourself, should have that much power over your mind.

No matter where life takes you, I will always be your mother and you will always be my daughter. This world has so much to offer and I hope that with my blessing you can leap and soar into it without any doubts. I will raise you the same way my mother and grandmothers raised me, with love, support, and respect. I hope that you and I can share the relationship that I do with my mother. I want you to sit with your head in my lap pouring your heart and soul out. I'll be there to listen to you and give you advice. There is nothing in this world that you can possibly say that will stop me from loving you. Mama's got you.

Whenever you are feeling down, please read this letter and never-ever forget how much I adore you.

I will love you always and forever, my beautiful girl.

With endless hugs and kisses,

Your mama
