    To the Woman I Aspire to be

    Good Morning Beautiful Soul,

    We are connected like sisters, I feel. Not blood, barely relatives, but still sisters. You and I met by chance but our paths were absolutely meant to cross. I met you while we were both in our darkest hour, different paths, similar darkness. You are someone who has poured into me from the moment you met me, as a big sister would. I’ve yearned for a sister like you and I am blessed to have you. I had the honor of watch from a distance as you fought tooth and nail to piece your life back together. You have and continue to build this beautiful life from the ashes like the phoenix you are.

    I watch in complete aww as you build a company, buy a house, support your baby girl in the ways every little girl should be supported. You are literally the walking example of the woman I aspire to be. You spend your mornings and afternoons working and your evenings building others up. You ensure everybody around you is cared for and loved while holding your boundaries and staying true to what you absolutely deserve.

    You pour into me like I’ve poured into tons of unworthy people, hoping and praying I would receive the worthiness soon enough. You remind me of my worth and empower my boundaries. You help build me to the limitless woman I am becoming. What you don’t know is even when we go weeks where life sweeps us up I still hear you in my head; my voice of reason, of worth. “Don’t let nobody tell you, you aren’t worthy.” “Love yourself baby!” You literally fill my entire being with a yearn to level up.

    I will never be able to repay you for what you have gifted me, without even knowing it. However, I will absolutely try to be the best me in return. And I will forever be in your corner, no matter how near or far we are. Aspiration to others, building boundaries, knowing my limits, and evolving always. I’ve always watched and admired from afar, like a fan does to a celebrity. I say this not to put pressure, but to show you how you being you has helped me be me. Most importantly, to show you how loved and worthy of nothing less than exceptional you are.

    Thank you for being the sister I never knew I needed. Thank you for fighting, for being you! Because honestly, without you turning your ashes into diamonds I wouldn’t have known that was an option for me. You are my role model.

    I love you ALWAYS!

    AL Gonzalez

    • I absolutely LOVE this. Knowing inside who we can become and who we want to become is so powerful. But the truth is it’s probably who you already are… just have to be disciplined to be that person every single day. Thank you for sharing this. Be proud of you. Be excited about the person you are continuing to become. Thank you for this beautiful letter. <3

      • Lauren, Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, you are completely right. However, Im really good at hiding me from me and people plleasing. This beautiful soul is teaching me, no inspiring and encouraging me to be true to me as a whole. Im learning I can give the world the real me with boundaries and unapologetically at that.
        XO,
        AL Gonzalez

    • Amazing story. I don’t know if your letter is meant for a general audience or if it was coming from you meeting an actual person yourself. But the way you told it made me be in the same position that you are in. I have my sister who has been. Role model for me for literally my whole life. We have both shared dark past and came to an understanding from it. She’s made it through life past the standards of what we’ve been through. I am following in her footsteps to become successful in life and she’s been helping guide the way towards that success. I want you to know Al that based on this letter you wrote whoever you met guided you well, and I hope you continue to share amazing inspirational stories like this.

      • Kayjah, I am so grateful my piece resonate with you. This particular piece is to the woman in the picture. We are not blood related but we are 100% sisters. She fills me and inspires me daily! She has taught me truely so much more than words can articulate. I like to try and write pieces that will allow others to find inspiration and that resonate with them. I myself find inspiration in pieces formated in that way to help my writing flow. I hope this helps you to write a piece to your beautiful sister!
        Love & Light

    • Dear Al,
      What a beautiful, touching letter you wrote to your sister . You both sound like amazing people who I would like to meet. In these challenging times it is so important that we support one another. Woman to woman bonds are especially strong because we are nurturers by nature. So you give each other a double gift of love and closeness. I wish you both much health, success and continued love for each.

      Women for women,
      Shelley

    • I absolutely loved reading your letter. The impact that she has had on your life is clear and inspiring. I personally have two sisters and while we are blood-related I saw many similarities in our relationships. I would not be the person that I am today without them. They are the first people I come to for advice or even just to talk to them about minor inconvinces. I know that they will always be there for me no matter what and that I can trust them with anything . I look to both of them for different things and have learned so much from each of them. Wether blood related or not having sisters is truly something special. Thank you for sharing your letter.
