Notes of Wisdom To Her Younger Self
Your deep Mahogany skin may not resemble that of the others in your family, but it's just as gorgeous and you're just as worthy....One day you'll appreciate how much your brown skin shines in the moonlight, glistens in the sun and ages ever so slowly.
Her advice to women with low self-esteem
Don’t let that pesky low self-esteem creep in and fool you into believing that you don't have value…don’t allow it to crush your will or dampen your spirit…Never worry about LOVE....real love will find you....an incredible love with an incredible man....there is a beautiful rainbow at the end of your storm.
Don't let other people's needs, wants, desires, fantasies, hopes or dreams dictate your choices and decisions. Follow your own path, and don't worry that you’re being selfish or disloyal.
