Dear Diva,
Know this...from the day the breath of life was breathed into you, you were loved. Your quirky personality, sarcastic sense of humor, unique fashion sense and love of green tea lattes ( with extra whip and mocha drizzle) make you who you are. Everything about you is loved because everything is you. You have gone from not liking yourself, to fully loving yourself.

And just know that I'm proud of you. You have overcome so much in such a short amount of time, and that's something to always hold your head up about. Abuse, unemployment, rape, the loss of your mom, failed relationships, bankruptcy, foreclosure, homelessness and everything in between. You survived, overcome and now you're thriving. I know, I know, you probably feel like you still have a long way to go; but also think about how far you're come...YOU GO GIRL!!! 

But listen, you truly have it going on. From your chocolate skin, to your natural hair, to even your stretch marks (that's lightening baby...electric)!!! There is nobody like you and there will never be another you. So thank you for being you.

Love,
You, Me, We
