From Woman to Woman: An Open Letter to Myself

Image
Happy March! In honor of Women’s Month (March 1-March 31), I wrote a loving, open letter to myself. I have written one before, but not as heartfelt and in depth as this one. My past, present and future, and latest accomplishment inspired me. May your past, present, latest and future inspire you too!

Dear Danielle,

I am truly proud of you. You're an amazing and phenomenal woman. A beautiful, talented, ball-of-fire, cool-as water and wind, and elegant black sister--that beat so many odds while managing to remain even through them all, with your soul and mind intact. You are one of the best women that STEMs from a single parent home. What a wonderful product produced by your queen mother-- that you watched juggle school, raising two kids, and work at the same time? The outcome of your youth and womanhood is totally a blessing to what you've become. Please, thank your mother-send her flowers and wine- you owe her for the love and knowledge she loaned you.

You never fit in because you…
