Something I want you to know
Dearest darling daughter, there is something I want you to know. It's cheesy but it's true.
You can change the World.
You have the ability to change the worlds of everyone around you. A smiley face and a positive attitute is contagious. Bring the smiles to everyone's day. Being a pleasure to be around can make someone's boring day at work a lovely day, a sad day a better day, a long day a worthwhile day. A helpful hand, a listening ear and a big friendly smile all bring happiness. Spread happiness and change someone's world. Like choc chips added to a plain cookie, your attitude can make good things great.
But I hope too that you are surrounded by other people who spread happiness, because you have a smile that is too amazing not to be on display and even the smiliest of smiles needs recharging from time to time. Hunt these people down and stick together.
Of course you might change the World in other ways too. Like being the best manicurist in town, or curing cancer, or being a hero to a classroom of 5 year olds. But that would just be a bonus because you already have what it takes to change the World.
