Being a mother and creating two absolutely perfect tiny humans has been my greatest accomplishment in life thus far. My children are my everything. There is nothing in this world that I would not do for either of them. And, I’m sure most of you can relate. As beautiful as it is to be a mother, it is also downright terrifying. Am I doing this right? Could I be doing this better? I shouldn’t have done that. I shouldn’t have said that the way that I did. I’ve only been a mom for six years and only a mother to two kids for three years, but in these short six years they sure have put life into perspective. I want my children to live the happiest most fulfilling lives. Here are just 5 of the wishes I have for my littles.
- Be true to Yourself. There will be people in life who like you. There will be people who love you. There will also be people who don’t like you and are mean to you. The people who like and love you may try to imitate you. That’s okay. You still be you. Take that as a compliment. The people who are mean to you…ignore them. There’s a reason they are being mean to you and it’s not you. Stand up for yourself when necessary. Choose kindness whenever you can. Kindness will always win.
- Find Your Passion. Do what you love. Find things that make YOU happy. Don’t do things just because others are doing them too. Find your passion in life. Mommy and Daddy will be proud of you no matter what career path you choose. We will be most proud that you found your purpose.
- Know How Proud You Make Me. I wish that you always know how proud you make me. Even in the every day little things that you do. Pouring yourself a cup of water. Putting your tee shirt on all by yourself. Putting your dirty dishes in the sink. Riding your bike. You make me proud every single day.
- Be Loyal. To your family. To your friends. To your acquaintances. Be honest about your thoughts and feelings. The right people will always appreciate this.
- Call Me Whenever You Want. Any time of day or night. I’m here for you. Always. I want to know about your happy moments and your sad moments. I’ll always want to pick up the phone to call you when you’re away, but I’ll do my best not to.
This list could go on and on and I may even continue it down the road. But, for now, it’s late and I need to be closing these tired mom eyes. Good night!
