MERRY CHRISTMAS MY PEOPLE!

Having the nerve to build this space was one thing, but the love and support you've given me has been the most incredible freakin' gift. It wasn't wrapped and sitting under my Christmas tree this morning but it's meant the world to me. Thank you for laughing with me. For tolerating my Instagram car-rides and bathroom music videos. For helping me spread kindness. For supporting female hustle. FOR BEING A HUSTLER YOURSELF. I appreciate you and I hope you find your own reasons to be happy and hopeful today.

I know sometimes the holidays can be so freakin' difficult. They're weird that way- joyful for many and not-so-merry for others.  I know that because I've been there... so I see you. I know what it's like to to put your younger siblings first. To open nothing on Christmas day and have to listen to your friends talk about everything they got. To have no special dinner or traditions. To feel left out. I get that... I SEE YOU. 

That's why I'm here to let you know that however you feel today, it's okay. If you're feeling #blessed, yaaas I'm happy for you. May this remind you of all the things in your life you have to be grateful for. Writing this has certainly reminded me. But if you're stressed or sad or lonely or "over it"- that's okay- I get you too. I've been there... so trust me when I say that things will get better. Find something to celebrate. Remember that you are here. Sometimes that's enough to humble you.

I'll be over here celebrating the fact that you've read this. For that I'll be forever grateful. 

All love and realness always, xx
