7 Things I Want My Daughter to Know & Follow in Life!

7 Things I want my daughter to know and always follow in life!

We recently celebrated daughters day and while I am all in favour of this day and celebrate it with full gusto with my girl, I also believe that each day spent with her is Daughter’s Day!

For us, daughters day is Everyday and we like to cherish it that way.

As my girl is growing up, I want her to know a few things about life and always follow them. These are simple life-lessons that I myself learnt pretty late in life but I want my girl to understand these early and follow them whole-heartedly.

🌸 Love yourself first. Pay attention to self. Know what you want in life and strive to achieve that.

🌸 It’s ok if you don’t want to wear high heels or a flashy dress to a party. But if you do, wear it regardless of your height or weight.

🌸 No one is perfect in life. Not even your parents. (Which is why you’ll probably have to learn driving from your dad and I can teach you some bit of cooking 😉).

🌸 Don’t be afraid to say the word ‘No’. You don’t have to do something that you don’t want to. (Homework will be an exception in this case though 😂).

🌸 You don’t have to always be nice, but always be kind. And treat everyone with respect. (Be it a janitor or your teachers in school or even your parents 😅).

🌸 You will come across all kinds of people in life. Some will uplift you (Treasure them!), some will pull you down. Forgive the latter and move on in life.

🌸Most importantly, believe in yourself because no one will do it till you learn to value yourself first!

With these life-lessons, I hope she grows into an independent, smart, confident woman who can live her life on her own terms!

Happy Daughter’s Day, EVERYDAY!

    These are very honest and important lessons for a mother to teach her daughter. Each and everyone one is equally important. Your daughter is adorable. God bless.

  2. Such beautiful simple yet deep points. I love your style of writing mixed with humour it makes it easier to ingrain

    As a mother I would say my daughter the exact same things. Such a feel-good post and something we need to remind ourselves too. Love self, no matter what.

  5. Suchita

    I love how you have drawn a difference between niceness and kindness.

  6. I love the first one the most. We are considered as nurturers and expected to take care of everyone but ourselves. I wish someone had reminded me of this once in a while!

    As a mother I couldn’t agree more on each pointer. I like the all the pointers with a slight humorous touch that’s what we call mother, who knows how to keep fun alive in every learning. Brilliant!

    I tell my kids these everytime I feel they are letting life get the better of them. Crying is not bad. But keeping a grudge is.
