{All Things Kids} Tag post - Life lessons in a letter... Advice for my children

I was tagged to write a letter of advice and encouragement to my child. What a fab idea. Thanks to Tegan over at A Kiwi Mumma for the tag - head on over to her blog and check it out.

Here is my letter:

Dear Keaton,

We could not have asked for a better child to have. From the moment we found out we were expecting you, you have been an absolute joy. You continue to amaze us with the new and quirky things you do, and we look forward to growing old watching you grow into a gentle, caring wonderful young man.

We can’t tell you what you have to do in life, but we can try and guide you on the right path so that the decisions you will make, will be the right ones. Here are a few things we learnt while growing up, and we hope that they will help you in life.

You don’t need to have the best of everything to be happy. Happiness comes from being true to yourself, and surrounding yourself with positive and happy people. Don’t compare yourself to others, you are you, and you are perfect the way you are.

There will always be bullies. The society you are growing up in is full of them, and unfortunately no matter how hard you try to avoid them, they will always be there. You just have to make sure that you hold your head up high and not let them get to you. And always remember that we love and support you no matter what.

Work and play hard. Don’t take school for granted, we can see how determined you are, and if you put your mind to it, you will be awesome in everything you do. Choose something and stick to it.
Travel the world. There is so much to see and be seen.

The outdoors is way better than TV and TV games. You need to let your imagination blossom and grow, you already have such an amazing imagination, so don’t let technology over shadow that.

Remember to say your prayers. You are doing so well at the moment, we hope that you keep it up, and remember that God is watching over you always, and when we are not around for some reason, he is there, so talk to him. The power of prayer is awesome.

Lastly, we will always be here for you, no matter what, all you have to do is ask. We will love and support you always.

With Love Mum and Dad
