A Letter To My Daughter On Her Recollection Day At School

Dear Ms. Bookworm,

I am honestly at loss for words to tell you. I don’t want to say that you should study hard because I say that almost every day. Love your siblings… that’s your father’s usual line. Save your money? You already knew that… and more.

So, as I was racking my brain to write a blog post and my message to you – lightbulb moment!
The 12 Mini-Lectures That Your Parents Want You to Learn:
  1. You are beautiful. Just always wear a smile and you’re all set!
  2. You are smart. Carry on being Trivia Queen, dad just needs to train you on street knowledge.
  3. You are kind. And, when others are mean – continue to be kind to them.
  4. You are loved. Your family love you unconditionally.
  5. Love yourself. Accept your flaws and celebrate your individuality.
  6. Read more books that you did last year. But, read more non-fiction books now that you are older.
  7. Don’t compare yourself to others. Someone will always be better or worst than you.
  8. Continue to dream. Dream for a better future for yourself and for your generation.
  9. The world is your oyster. You can do anything as long as you have the knowledge and determination.
  10. Fail forward. When you encounter a roadblock, come up with alternatives and start again.
  11. Be a (wo)man for others. Serve others selflessly.
  12. You are a blessing to your family. God bless your father and me when He gave you to us.
Yes, these are just mini-lectures! You can always hear the full lectures during meals and before bedtime. On a serious note, as you embark on a new chapter of your life, always remember that dad, mom, Ms. Mini-Me and The Gentle Panda are always beside you. We are your cheering squad! The Gentle Panda’s going to cheer the loudest wink wink.
Mom (and, Dad)
