CHIN UP, CROWN ON
Once upon a time, I was small and meek. I smiled politely and agreed with a giant for fear I would be crushed. Today, I walk with a calmness that only comes from knowing one’s own strength. I fear nothing, for I know I can withstand any storm.
I wear my crown not just in celebration of what I have accomplished, but as a reminder of how much further I can go. I wear it in honor of my mother and my grandmother whose jewels of strength & wisdom have been passed from their crown to my own. I wear it in solidarity with every woman who has stood up & refused to be silenced and intimidated. My crown is my reminder that I am powerful, unwavering and brave.
Thank you to every woman who has guided me with their royal example.
