I always want you to know that you are loved.
I want you to know that you are always good enough.
You are always clever enough. You are always beautiful enough.
You are always perfect exactly as you are.
You never have to prove your worth to me, you’ll never need to show me what you’re made of, you’ll never need to try your best to make me proud. You don’t need to earn my admiration. You don’t need to strive to impress me.
Anything you strive for, you should do so because it is your calling and it makes your soul sing. (And is nothing to do with winning my approval.) I hope you’ll never be compelled to do anything because you believe it’s what you need to do in order to be valid or admired. Your life belongs to you, it was given to you freely and you don’t need to give it to others in payment for a debt that is not owing.
You will always be good enough for me.
You will always be perfect to me.
As you grow, I won’t be the only one that will know this. The ones that will truly love you, will find it easy because they’ll know this too. No likes, no labels, no job titles, no qualifications, no styling, no ring, no tiara, no proof needed. They’ll know your heart, like I do.
They’ll respect your strength as I do.
They’ll be dazzled by your brilliance as I am.
The love I have for you is an unextinguishable flame and it lives inside of you. It will always be there and you will always be able to reach for it and feels it’s warmth. This is the first place you’ll find love because it has been with you since the day you were born and it will be there with you always. It can never be dimmed by the obstacles of life or even by others who might seek to try to snub it out. Accept this as your gift and nurture it. It will warm your heart, burn away your doubts and radiate out into a world where it will be reflected back to you.
Whether I am beside you or not:
You are loved.
You are good enough.
You are clever enough. You are beautiful enough.
You are perfect exactly as you are.
Never second guess any of this.
Speak your truth.
Dance on, Darling Girl x
