GirlTrek proclaimed March 1 as Black Women’s Appreciation Day! 💁🏾♀️✨ -- a day of collective action to #ThankABlackWoman! I am grateful to all the Black women and girls who push me, daily. I hope that this Women's History Month you dare to dream bigger!
March marks Women's History Month. Every year, the transition from Black History Month to Women's History Month feels like switching from one cute hairstyle to the next. Iykyk. 💁🏾♀️ When GirlTrek declared March 1 as the day to #ThankABlackWoman, I got excited thinking of all the ways that I could try and celebrate Black women, often times I am quickly overwhelmed with how many different ideas I may have and end up tabling most. This year, this month, I am operating with intention and audacity.
This month I am continuing to bet on myself, to trust in God's timing and way, and to keep going no matter how scared I am, no matter what I think people may say, and even if its imperfect. I hope that by walking boldly in who I am, in all my flaws, and in my mistakes, and in all my greatness, in all my gifts, that I can continue to create more space and access for other Black girls and women.
Who is a Black woman/girl/femme that you want to thank? 🥰 Make sure to let them know.
With lots of love,
