This month is the month that Black History is celebrated. Although I celebrate all year long, some people take a special time to celebrate the many wonders and accomplishments of Black People. I was talking with someone about speaking in public. She was nervous and unsure if she could "deliver" as well as she needed to. She was anxious and thought that I since I speak for a living I would understand and have some good tips to give her. I told her that she would be fine. I told her that she came from greatness and greatness is in her. I reassured her that she will be great because she is great. I reminded her that her ancestors did wonderful and marvelous things. Therefore, you have the same power that they did to do marvelous things. Now go do them!
Recently, I wrote a letter to my younger self. In it I shared pieces of advice I wish I had known or hadn't heard enough. Writing this letter gave me such a sense of relief and release.
As Valentine's Day approaches I want to encourage you to love yourself in a new way this year. Whether you are married, dating, or single; take time for self-care and self-love on Valentine's Day 2016. As a part of that self-care journey, consider writing your own letter to your younger self. Write with love, compassion, care, and transparency. It may be painful. It may be easy. It may bring joy to your heart. It may cause you to face some self-limiting beliefs. Whatever it brings up, let it come. I am certain you will be a better, braver, bolder, and more beautiful you afterward.

In Abundant Love,
February is the month of love. The 14th is the day many will celebrate with their earthly loves. Husbands and wives exchange gifts. Many people get married or engaged on this day making it the day to honor with love the ones who have a huge impact on your life. The ones that make your heart go flutter with every touch of her hand and his voice. As I have aged and lost many loved ones, for me, each day is a day to celebrate love and my loved ones. Not just one day. I do, however, want to tell you a story about first love, a love supreme.
