Thank you for being my Dad. Not my friend. Not my confidant. But my Dad.
Thank you for being a shoulder to lean on.
Thank you for being the voice I needed to hear.
Thank you for standing by my side. But also, at times, making sure I sit my ass down.
Thank you for working hard so I could have an easier life.
Thank you for loving Mom and treating her like the queen she is.
But most importantly, thank you for being there.
Dear past me,
You may not believe it, but damn, are you beautiful. Your frizzy, curly hair will eventually find her way & become envious curls. Your clumsiness will find her way and become poise. & remember when you would got teased for being “too nice?” Girl, pay them no mind. Continue to fight negativity with peace & prosperity.
Keep laughing at puns & corny jokes. Stay focused on school…even though you would want to drop out two times. Remember to stay humble, because girl, the moments you are cocky…*sigh* girl, just don’t do it.
No matter what…still pursue Alpha Kappa Alpha. Even though you will face adversaries and conflict, you will eventually become a proud Soror. And man, will you be proud.
2013 will be a hard year for you…mentally, physically, and emotionally. But this is where God will test you. Make sure you depend on Him and only Him. You will get angry with Him. You will get sad with Him. You will praise with Him. But make sure you depend on Him. God’s timing is perfect, don’t you forget that.
You will struggle with loving yourself. Sometimes you will think you’re not good enough. Not smart enough. Not pretty enough. Allow the struggle to take place. Because once you accept your flaws, it will be such a beautiful moment.
Oh and the whole “boyfriend” situation? After your first love (and first break-up), you will be single…for a while. Yes, a few will worry. And a few will try to play matchmaker. And even your ex will try to come back. Girl, don’t worry about them. This is God’s way of saying to “get yourself together first”. I promise, your King will eventually come.
Oh…& you will fall in love with beer and Hennessy. The quicker you accept this, the better your life will be.
Stay true to who you are, stay conscious & stay positive.
With the utmost love,
I will write about the following, leave one in my ask box.

Dear ex bestfriend,
Dear future me,
Dear past me,
Dear person I’m jealous of,
Dear person I had a crush on,
Lets keep this up!
Fuck yeah. Please I want to.
