DEAR SISTER

Dear Sister,
I am writing this letter to let you know that you inspire me so much, every time I think of you it makes me want to be better, to do better. Your strength and resilience never goes unnoticed, through the years you have fought for freedom and equality - THANK YOU because without you, my life wouldn't be the way it is. They try to suppress us, to belittle us but you have showed me there is hope. Together we have to keep ridding ourselves of the patriarchy shackles they've forced upon us. I know sometimes our relationship is a challenging one, sometimes it's full of mistrust. We lose ourselves in comparing ourselves, insecurities and misunderstandings but you should know that deep down I have nothing but empathy for you. We are on the same side, I promise.

I absolutely adore you, the connection we have is like nothing else on earth. When we walk alongside each other I feel like we could take on the world. Thank you for always being there for me, for picking me up when I've fallen. For listening to me when I need to be heard. Thank you for always laughing in the face of adversity with me and supporting me through life. I am who I am because of the sisters that went before, before them and the sisters I am surrounded by now, whether it be in close physical proximity and from afar. Let this be a reminder that together we are strong, divided we are weak.

I see you.
I feel you.
I know you.
I understand you. I trust you.
I protect you.
I support you.
I honour you. I admire you. I love you.

You are beautiful inside & out. You're a goddess. In tune with the moon, the tides & the cycles of life. Empower yourself, empower others, learn to use your voice and speak your truth. Always challenge injustice gracefully. It's time to believe in yourself, in the infinite, creative, feminine power that you behold. Keep rising. Keep shining.

Yours forever, Your Sister.
