To a Child~
You are worthwhile.
You are important.
Your life means much to this earth even as you are small.
You are loved.
Play. Share your joy. Stay curious and daring, though certainly not at risk to your safety. Share any fear with those who give of themselves and give time to listen. Share your goodness. Speak of goodness. Others will learn from your words and behaviors.
Extraordinary gifts you have. Release them. To do so, be truly yourself, and do not let self ridicule keep you from doing so. Though you might have the tendency to be timid at the start, feel the fear, then move to a different space. Accept it exists, then allow yourself to feel that which is oh so much more gravely real and pertinent. Sharing your uniqueness is a gift. Being unique is not only a gift to others, but as well to you. It only serves, when released, to better the lives of other peoples.
Laugh. Share. Assist. Be Curious. Learn. Fall down. Teach.
Love, give it freely.
Show this world that you can change a part of what in it is bad, which sadly does exist, into strong goodness. Your mind and your hands both possess the strength to clutch the earth and create a better home.
