Dear Baby Girl,
I would like to share a thought with you I’ve been thinking of a lot the last few days. The effects of positive people in your life. I’ve been one known to latch on to everyone around me positive AND negative, I appreciate people and am always there for everyone in my life no matter their faults.
It’s been the last couple years I’ve started to realize and the last few weeks started accepting it’s OK to be picky with the people in your life. It’s about the quality not the quantity. The good people in your life are the ones who make you feel good when you’re around them. I realized this week when I walked away from a business meeting with a huge smile on my face from the pure joy that single client brings into my life that THAT is how I like feeling, how I WANT to feel after dealing with other people and I should take an active roll in surrounding myself with people like THAT.
I’m just starting to learn relationships of all kinds should have an equal investment from both parties. If you’re putting more into a friendship with no return is it really a friendship? A healthy relationship should never leave you feeling weaker or drained of energy, but lift you up, always, even when one of the party is having hard times.
I know this is such a simple thing but it really is a big change in your mom’s view on the world and this little life. There’s some things in this world baby your mom is still trying to figure out herself, (there always will be) such as lessons like these and that’s OK, I’m just taking it one step at a time so I can be the best person and in turn the best mother I can be. I love you dear and am so happy to hold your hand through this crazy world and it’s lessons as you grow.
