I Want Her To…

I had some time to myself this morning and was thinking of all the things I’d love for Avery, and her future…

I want her to be an olympic swimmer.
I want her to play on the U.S. Women’s National soccer team.
I want her to go to medical school, and become an incredible pediatric surgeon of some sort.
I want her to be a dancer in one of Disney’s Broadway musicals.
I want her to be a country music star.
I want her to be a famous artist, maybe a graphic designer.
I want her to have a big house, maybe a farm, with lots of land.
I want her to be a professional golfer. (Or maybe that’s what her daddy wants!)
I want her to run marathons, and triathlons, maybe even and Iron Man or two.

I want all these things for her, but mostly…

I want her to have dreams.
I want her to reach for the stars.
I want her to believe in herself.
I want her to feel beautiful.
I want her to know she is loved unconditionally.
I want her to be strong in every sense of the word.
I want her to know it’s ok to be weak sometimes, too.
I want her to know that she can do anything she puts her mind to.
I want her to go to college—unless her path takes her in a different direction (as long as it’s a positive direction)
I want her to choose whatever career path she wants.
I want her to know that it’s ok to change her mind.
I want her to know that sometimes it is OK to quit—and not to feel guilty about it.
I want her to be healthy.
I want her to celebrate life, and embrace every Birthday.
I want her to have an amazing group of friends.
I want her to see the good in people.
I want her to have a loving, caring, supportive partner and family—whatever that looks like for her.
I want her to be successful—whatever success means to her.
I want her to have enough, and never have to struggle financially (though sometimes that struggle helps you realize what is truly important)
I want her to be kind, generous, and compassionate.
I want her to feel empathy for others.
I want her to be a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and a mouth that offers supportive and encouraging words.
I want her to know that is it ok to say “No.”
I want her to always be herself, and never feel that she needs to change to please others.
I want her to believe in magic, and to find the wonder in every day.
I want her to know she is never alone.
I want her to be creative, and artistic—in whatever way works for her.
I want her to love learning.
I want her to challenge herself.
I want her to know that she doesn’t have to be perfect or the best at everything.
I want her to know that I will always love and support her, no matter what.
I want her to be happy.
I want her to feel fulfilled.
I want her to be…
