Life Lesson #3: Learn to Love Yourself

Dearest Zeeka,

In the stillness of the morning, I look at you. I wonder how anyone or anything can be so perfect. I touch your flawless skin, and even while sleeping, you give me than cute little grin.

I wonder what it is you’re thinking of. I wonder if you see me, your Mommy. I wonder if you see Daddy. I wonder if you see and feel the love that we both have for you.

We just watched a movie. The guy in the movie had two children and they were both girls. I could very much relate to the movie, since it showed the relationship that the mommy and daddy had with their two girls. It brought me to think about you, Zeeka — your future and how you would be to us your mommy and daddy.

When you grow older, I know that you will have a mind of your own. You will form your own thoughts and ideas about people, things and even yourself. As early as now, I want you to know that you are perfect. You are perfect since God created you and He gave you to us. You are our precious gift from God.

I want you to learn how to love and appreciate yourself. I know that there will be times that you may think differently, especially at times when the world seems to be against you. Remember that to us, the people who love you, you are the most beautiful and talented girl in the world.

Also, never doubt your capabilities. If at first you fail at what you do, rise up and try again. There is nothing wrong with failing. Failing and falling are steps on the ‘success’ ladder. Mommy and Daddy also experience failure and defeat (until now), but this doesn’t make you less of a person. Also, remember that we will always be here for you during these trying times. Be confident and never forget to pray that you may overcome all of these obstacles.

Zeeka, my wish for you is that you learn to love yourself. That love overflows. By loving yourself, you get to love others and have enough courage and strength to show others that you love them.

We love you!
