a letter to my daughter

5th grade Graduation Party
June 7, 2011

My Dear Sage, 
My wish for you is to know how to always follow your heart and listen to the quiet voice within, and know that your life is filled with possibilities.

 My wish for you is to know how to attract and develop a circle of friends who will fuel your passion, be worthy of your trust, and supportive of your dreams.

My wish for you is to know that it’s not the make-up and/or clothes you choose to wear that makes you who you are. It’s the light that shines through you that reveals your authenticity, What matters, is how you show the world your soul, your spirit, your light, and all the goodness that is within you.

My wish for you is to know that you will always have options ~~ to know that it’s OK to make mistakes ~~ to know there are solutions to every situation.

My wish for you is to know how to have the courage to be vulnerable, and to honor your imperfections.  These traits will cultivate courage, compassion, and connection to others, and will enhance and elevate your sense of” self-worthyness”.

My wish for you is to know how to move away from what does not feel good, and to move towards what brings you JOY.

My wish for you is to be grounded in your power and to know how to say “YES” when you want to and “NO" when you mean to,  ~ and ~ to know that you do not need to explain yourself.

My wish for you is to accept who you are ~ and to never, ever make excuses for your self  ~~ to anyone.

My wish for you is to know that you are unique, caring, expressive, beautiful, grounded, creative, brave, smart. ~~ and so LOVED!

My wish for you is to always know  ~ YOU ARE ENOUGH  ~

We all desire to hear these words,
so please share this letter with
all the beautiful girls in your life.
Thank you for stopping by
 and inspiring me with your loving comments. 
 Much love and Light to all of the beautiful girls and women in our lives. 


  1. Eydie, what a profound message of love that will resonate within your daughter--and everyone else who reads it--for years to come!

    As I read this tonight, I realized that even at the age of 32, I need to work harder to fulfill some of these very same wishes in my own life, esp. the one about moving toward what feels right and getting rid of what doesn't. I know I could do a better job with that, as I'm the type of person who's prone to settling, simply because it's easier and doesn't require taking risks.

  2. This is so beautiful and so powerful. I wish every girl and woman could hear these words. Thank you for sharing your heart.

  3. Eydie,
    I wish I had been told this when I was finishing 5th grade, oh so long ago. But I agree with Jenny and Alia that we all need to hear this and share it with every woman we know. Such a beautiful daughter you have!

  4. Eydie...this is precious. My hope is that every single one of us feels and follows the truth of these words.

    Sending so much love your way.

  5. What a beautiful letter to your daughter, she will treasure reading this someday!

  10. Beautiful words ... I have two daughters 17 and 11 ... I am going to share this with them too.

  11. What a beautiful post, Eydie. This reminds me that I need to write letters to my sons. Even though they are all but grown now - 23, 19 and 15 - it's never too late, is it? I love love love your blog and many that you follow; I am so glad you found mine and gave me this opportunity to get to know you. I plan to visit often! Thank you for the inspiration!
