Dear My Future Kids,

Read everything and anything. Read pink books and blue books. Big books and small books. Unicorn books and zombie books. Love books and hate books. Read action books and history books. Wear pink and blue and green and yellow. Wear dresses and pants and hats and bows. Play with cars and dolls. Laugh when you want to, cry when you want to. Be strong and sensitive. Be proud of who you are, because I will be proud of you no matter who you are, what you like, who you love, or what you read. And when others look at you with curious eyes and questions on their lips, know they are not as lucky as you. Don't feel bad, but know you have the power to show the world just how special and lucky and amazing and free it can truly be just by being you.

Love, Me

Don't bring your attitude down by focusing on how others treat you. Don't blame them. Rise and run forward and build your own happiness.
