[We asked women who have and expecting girls what they want their daughters to know.] [Things I want my daughter to know] [Be confident in your body] I want you to know that being beautiful doesn't necessarily means you always like what you see when you look in the mirror. I've felt horrible about the way I've looked. It's not about living up to society's ideals or looking like a supermodel. People are telling you already that your body has to look a certain way and you're only six. That is not true at all. Your body is beautiful. Love it and respect it no matter what shape or size it comes in. Own it! When you are comfortable in your own skin, people feel that. Because when you feel good about yourself, you feel good about the world around you. [Don't be afraid to fail] Life, it’s beautiful, beautiful, however it’s not easy. I don’t want you to be afraid to make mistakes. Sometimes you won’t succeed. What really matters is what you do next. This is your opportunity to rise to the occasion. I want you to be venerable. Whatever your heart guides you and takes you to do, you can and should do. I don’t want you to be afraid of anything. [Be a powerful woman] If someone tells you you can’t do something especially a boy because you are a girl, you fight against it! Being a woman doesn’t mean you have to be passive. Don’t let anything hold you back. Go with what you like and you know, ignore the haters. You should not let anybody get in the way or try to cloud your judgment of who you really are. [Fill your life with love] Always surround yourself with genuine people. People who inspire you. Who are not afraid to make fun of themselves. Let yourself love! Love isn’t about receiving but it is about giving. I love you the way you are. I love you so much! I love you! I love you! You are the love of my life and I love you to bits.
