The Christmas Card

I opened a Christmas card today from one of my favorite social media influencers. I dedicate this to her today.

Dearest Stephanie,

I must admit I just now opened your beautiful Christmas card. When I saw your name & return address my eyes became tear-filled. It was tears of gratefulness for you. For you honoring your word at a time when so many people let us down. For you being you and your authentic beautiful self.

It was during my deepest pain & darkness that I found you on Instagram. I found out that I was not alone and someone else had walked a similar path. That connection is what we are all searching for in life. We want to know we are not alone and that someone else understands our pain.

As I enter each new year I think about what I need. Last year in January I did a media detox for a month. It allowed me to focus more on myself through reading, writing, music, and connecting with nature but this year I’m staying on social media because I want to pay it forward. I want to be the Stephanie Bennett-Henry for someone else. I want someone to know they are not alone and I understand their pain. Passing on love and hugs.

Thank you again Stephanie for sharing yourself with the world. We appreciate you!

Wishing you the best in 2023 💫 Love, Dana
