Writing Prompts #7: To My Child

You have a child and you have written one piece of advice that will be carried in his/her pocket for life. What is that advice? 

if the world does not believe in your brilliance
just remember to smile
your radiance will be the beacon
by which all will be drawn to

I chose these words very carefully. For most of my life, I have never really had doubt in myself but I know through others what that doubt can do to the mind. It is crippling when you are in its embrace. Paralyzing by design and often times overwhelming to point of hopelessness.  

If there is one thing that I want you to remember, it is that you are totally worth being here. I imagine if you have this, I am no longer walking beside you and I apologize sincerely for leaving but if that is the case, I want you to know that wherever apply your focus, passion, and energy, is worth it even if no one appreciates it and it doesn’t feel like it.  There is a beauty in expression that would hate to be hindered because of those who crush hopes and dreams because they did not have the courage to pursue their own. 

Go and live life for your own sake. Experience all the different colors of life and cherish the memories that come with it. Even the bad ones as you are bound to have them and without them, you won’t grow. Things will get rough and people will hurt you but remember to smile. There is a positive in everything and all you have to do is be willing find it. Lose your job? You get the vacation you have been asking for and you get the opportunity to find something better than your last job. Someone broke your heart? Know that in spirit, I am haunting that bastard for you. Find the humor in the things that put you down and you will uncover a shield that will definitely get you through the tough times. I would know, I find the humor in everything.

Smile, laugh. and enjoy all the experiences that life has in store for you.  And know that whenever I am, I am doing the same. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this entry. I really appreciate it! This is my first time using the new editor on WordPress so forgive me if things look weird. I am still getting a hang all of all the changes. 

So until the next post… 

Remember to smile
