I want to start by telling you somethings I may have left unsaid all of these years. I want to tell you how you changed much you changed my life and made me a better person, while I have struggled to be the best mom I could. How all those times the mama bear came out and embarrassed the hell out of you, well the feelings I never even knew I could have had came. I didn’t know how to control them and often did things without thinking because watching you in pain or upset gave me a new kind of pain. That has taken me sometime to learn. But, proves how I will always have your back but, through all my outburst and craziness I have learned so much. Thank you, guinea pig. Your brothers and sisters appreciate all that you have taken on being our first experiment! Haha! Love you!
You changed our lives in ways I could never put into words and for that I am grateful. I am sorry you were the first born and one who got to endure our lack of parenting skills having you at such a young age. We made many mistakes with you and I was not the mother at 18, that you have now helped me to become.
You are a very smart, talented and beautiful young woman who is destined to do great things. You have made me so proud through the years and it’s so hard to believe that you are now ending this chapter of your life and graduating this Spring. Like seriously how has 18 years already passed?
I am so excited for your next chapter as you find your path and decide where you want to be in life. You are luckier than you know. You have so many people who love and support you and all know how amazing you are and what talent you have. But, none of that will ever matter if you don’t find confidence in yourself, in everything you do and just believe in yourself. You may not tackle something the very first time, but never give up on yourself. If there is a will there is always a way. If you want something don’t ever think something is not within your reach because you’d be lying to yourself. And the first step always is to believe in yourself and to know that you will not always succeed without a few failures. And when you fail and you feel as though you are so low in a hole that you can never climb out, that’s when you have to remember that without the lows in life, you could never appreciate the highs.
Take life one step at a time. When one door closes that does not mean to give up! That means to come back through the back door with the mind set that you will go harder and you will learn from your mistakes. Don’t let a failure bring you down use them as your motivation and your determination to keep trying. Those with a heart and passion for something don’t take no for an answer. No one likes a quitter or someone who can’t learn from their mistakes. Some of the greatest of the greats were rejected many times before becoming the successful people that they are today. Take your failures and turn them into lessons to be better than you were. No mistake is a bad one unless you don’t learn something from it. Giving up in yourself is the only mistake you can ever make.
There is lots of people in this world and lots of people trying to achieve the same thing as you. There are people who you will act as a friend when they really have other motives. Trust no one who has not earned and proved they are worthy of your loyalty because too many times people won’t have the same caring heart as you nor is everyone out there to be a friend but, rather an obstacle and may momentarily get in your way from where you want to be but, no obstacle is a dead end. Keep going and if you are rejected step it up. Write you name on the canvas at hand. Make yourself someone that can not be forgotten that is expected to not give up and come back with full vengenes the next time up. If life was so easy to get where you wanted with no struggle and everything was easy to obtain than everyone would be a bunch of avgerge Joes witg mediocre expectations and the attitude to just settle even when you are not happy with what you are settling for.
You set your worth. Settle for nothing. Don’t let anytime ever tell you that something is not for you or you can’t so something. And when they do use those types of negative vibes as motivation and prove them all wrong.
It’s funny how people will often follow lead and see how you feel about yourself and from that they build their own perception of you. So main goal is to have the appreciation of yourself and your abilities that you are nothing but, confident in all that you do. Everyone loves to be surroded with some who is is happy as well as confident. Attitude is contagious and if yours isn’t worth catching inside isn’t worth wearing.
I love you and want nothing but, the best for your future!! It won’t be long and your future ibspeak of will be reality. So get ready and work on keeping company of people who share common goals and and gave a plan for their future because as much as bad habits rub off on others, well so do good habits. So surround yourself with motivated, uplifting and empowering people and keep your distance from all those negative always hashing your mellow kind of people!
That’s about all I have at this moment. If you know me at all you know I ramble too much and when writing i often get off track and go all over the place meaning lots of wasted time and energy. Follow the path and don’t expect to always find short cuts because there is no short cuts to success. You’re either all in or nothing!
❤Love You Always & Forver❤
Your Proud Mom
