If, one day, I have a daughter, I'd tell her:
Create your own joy,
and in those moments when the world crashes around you,
You are, all by yourself, a force of nature.
Strength must come from within to be sustainable,
and the harder you work to become the person you wish to be,
the stronger you will become.
It isn't easy, life, love, happiness. But it isn't meant to be.
Know that if you fall,
I'm here to catch you,
and if you break,
I'll stand strong enough for both of us.
In those moments when the world grows dark,
stand for what you believe in,
and don't give an inch to those who doubt.
In those moments when it seems the world has left you behind,
look behind you, because you aren't alone.
Remember to ask for help, when you need it, for there will always be someone happy to help.
Life is a struggle,
but that's where the beauty lies,
because if it were easy,
there would be no passion, no music, no art.
When it seems your heart is breaking,
Remember to love yourself.
Remember to look for joy in the smallest things.
Remember to look for beauty amid the chaos.
Stand strong, work hard, and love the world you live in,
and you'll do everything you set your mind to.
