I feel like we’re on the fast track to growing up over here. Our daughter is now in school full time and all of a sudden I’m wracked with the things I want to make sure she knows, remembers, learns, takes away and respects.
Like her mama, she’s an early adapter to all things emotional. The girl loves to feel in-love. At 6. This scares the shit out of me. So one day I’m going to tell her these things:
It’s ok to fall in love and please fall freely and without holding back. Do not, however, compromise yourself in doing so.
If you don’t respect your own body, mind and soul you’ll be teaching everyone else that there’s no need for them to either.
True love does last and if he’s not willing to fight for you, it was never real.
Know your boundaries and by all means take good care of them.
You might find what you’re looking for on the first go around with love – the first being when you’re 30. Ehum.
Take advantage of learning how to really live to your fullest while you can.
Without communication you might lose something you’ll never get back.
If he loves you like your Daddy does, you’ll be a princess for the rest of your life.
Most importantly: when it hurts … and one day it will … I will be here, waiting.
