Dear little one,
No matter your age, you will always be my baby sister. Your elders may have told you that the world is not safe to venture out anymore. They’re probably right, but you’d be a fool to not explore it anyway. I urge you to take off those rose-tinted glasses and view things for what they are and not what you wish them to be.
Just one more thing: you are strong, independent and most importantly, you’re MY sister. I want you to remember these little things when life steals your thunder.
It’s good to have dreams, ambitions and visions in life. Never distract yourself from a goal. In fact, it is these goals that will make you a brand one day. Work hard and never give up. Trust me, the universe loves a stubborn heart.
Just like you, there are women who push barriers every single day to make a name for themselves in the world. Know those women, support them and look up to them. A book like this will teach and motivate you to grow up to be someone amazing.
You can either be the person to hate Monday or fall in love with it - be the latter. Wake up every Monday with a vision to accomplish. Show Monday who is boss and trust me, you will achieve good karma and a pat on your back for doing a good job.
In life, you will get your heart broken many times. Be strong and don’t settle for less. There are plenty of fish in the sea and one day, when you grow older, you will meet someone who actually gets you without you having to try. Wait for that guy! Till then, you can go “Thank you, next” on this dude.
So what if they called you weird? That means you’re unique and awesome! It’s better to stand out from the crowd than to be part of the herd. Babe, you were born to turn heads wherever you go. Always remember that, okay?
Travel will change your whole outlook on life. The best part is that the more you do it, the more grounded you’ll become. Work hard, make that moolah, save some and use the rest of it to conquer the world!
Firstly, read up all about feminism. There’s more to the term than meets the eye. Understand that it doesn’t mean the battle between the sexes but stands for equality. Know your worth and don’t feel afraid to point out acts of sexism when you see it.
As long as you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything you want! All you need to do is muster the courage to take that first step. The rest will follow after.
I hope these tiny gifts make you feel empowered and make you fall in love with yourself every day. You’re doing good, kid!
