After watching an excessive stretch of OWN TV I am now even more obsessed with Oprah. So I thought about implementing more stuff that I am learning from her & her guests.
On her segment with Shawn Anchor on Super Soul Sunday, he suggested once a day for the next 21 days emailing, tweeting, or calling a person you know and basically spending 2 minutes telling them how awesome they are. Not only does it give them a boost, but you as well & can even play a factor in prolonging your life! I am compelled to give his idea a try. I've decided to do open letters on my blog for people that cross my mind. =)
To my beautiful brown girls,
It's going to take me more than 2 minutes to write this, but you are well worth it! Since this afternoon when it was brought to my attention that one or many more of you are out there watching me, growing with me and sending me your wishes; I just want you to know that I value YOU!
I want you to know that you can be WHATEVER you want to be.
I want you to know when people tell you no for opportunities you want, do not feel discouraged because it is getting you closer to a YES. Things will be get hard, because things of value don't always come easy. I want you to know that you will make lots of mistakes and there is no shame in that, because it's a part of life.Things tend to be a little harder for us because of the world we live in, BUT don't EVER for a second let anyone make you feel that you are not good enough!! A big thing you should also know is that you are BEAUTIFUL. Nothing can compare to the beautiful way God has designed YOU. You may not see it or feel it right now, but you are. Although I know you are bombarded daily with what you think you are supposed to look like, there is NO comparison to you! You are powerful, you are limitless & you know how I know all this?
Because I am you.
Sending you all my LOVE & I can't wait to connect with more of you,
