This Girl

Baby girl, 
I love dreaming of who you might become or what adventures you will discover. I remember holding you for the first time when they laid you on my chest. Meeting you was the most surreal moment that I have ever experienced. Watching you grown this short amount of time has been the most rewarding time of my life. As you get older, here are a few things to remember from your mother...

Dance in the rain once in awhile.
If an outfit doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.
When in doubt, wear black.
Speak up when you see injustice. 
Go barefoot.
Don't be afraid to eat by yourself.
Always carry a good book.
Being a powerful woman isn't a personality type.
Remember, there is nothing cooler than a girl who can change a tire.
If you don't respect yourself, no one else will.
When you look in the mirror, compliment the things you love. 
Seriously, no wire hangers.
Introduce yourself.
Don't mess with your eyebrows.
You don't need to do anything to prove you like him. Ever.
Travel and experience different cultures.
Confidence isn't loud, it's a posture.
Wear the right underwear. There is no shame in spanx.
Just because you are pretty, doesn't mean you can be mean.
Beauty is mostly attitude. The rest is good lighting.
Stand up straight.
There is always room for dessert.
Resist the temptation to look in every mirror.
You don't have to fall for the first guy who asks you to dance.
Don't pretend to be dumb. 
If you see something beautiful about a person, say it. 

Most importantly, know that I love you more than anything. You could be mad at me, yell at me, do all the wrong things, but I will always be your mother and I will always love you.
