Sisters are not only those who are blood related to you these are also those women who are there for you and genuinely love you for who you are. Personally I think when women are there for each other then they create a strong powerful union that no one can break. Growing up I always liked hanging out with people a little older than I was. I know many people will condemn me for this but I did it because it gave me a positive influence. Seeing what they went through, the choices they made always gave me a heads up on what to expect in my older years. I learned from their mistakes, set my bar higher with their success and learned that love was the greatest gift we could give each other as women. So today I will celebrate eight sisters who made 2016 count for me. They are between the ages of 24-30.

I stole your hashtag mami LOL but the love you have shown me is great. Always nudging me to exceed my expectations, to carry myself like a lady. You have taught me to stay true to myself and never settle, this journey of life has no destination. Whenever you think you have arrived, you yearn for more. You have taught me to never be afraid to express my true self and to never apologize for whom I am. Stay blessed my sister.
You opened your arms and taught me tirelessly what the corporate world entails. In a field dominated by men you showed me we women can do exactly the same as they do if not better than them. That’s a lesson I will never forget.” When you feel you’re becoming too comfortable and not challenged start looking for a different environment” these words still stick with me to date. You have shown me that a woman should not limit herself or else she becomes her own enemy. God bless you kind heart.
Always giving me lessons of life which have come in handy all through this year. You taught me age doesn’t define maturity and that you have to be strong for yourself first otherwise people will just come and step over you. I admire your relationship with God you make it look so cool and easy. You have been there since I was born to pick me up anytime I fell and I truly appreciate that always. You have taught me that family always comes first and when I start my own I will never forget that. Thank you for always opening your house for me. Sisters are always soul mates.
I really miss you big sister in my list you are the youngest person I know who has accomplished so much. Congratulations on your master’s graduation, so proud of you. You have taught me stop at nothing, when you can still grab it with both your hands. This long distance relationship has been hard but the strongest. May the almighty always shine his blessings your way.
My sunshine, every day in the office was worthwhile because of you. You always challenged me to try other things other than those in my comfort zone and as we figured out some just came naturally. I admire how you are so self-driven and good at everything you put your hands on. Thank you for introducing me to your amazing world and showing me that girl power is all that we need. You really are a crazier version of myself. I love you my sunshine. Keep up with you baking business true definition of turning passion into profits. See you in the next yoga class.
Mami you are so charismatic and your bubbly nature is the best thing a sister could ask for on any day. You taught me not to rush my social life some things are more important than others. Your always checking on me to see if am on the right track, I truly appreciate that. I love how being a mother doesn’t stop you from having fun and being adventurous, that I will carry into my mummy days. Always praying for you and your family my sister stay blessed.
OMG you are the most interesting person I have met this year. Stopping at nothing and showing me that it’s okay to be different as long as your being yourself and not living a lie then your good to go. Thank you for being my friend and showing me that you don’t have to stop anything. Still looking forward to our shooting range adventure and mann don’t I miss hugging a tall person every day before we start the day. Stay blessed my sister and stay interesting it looks good on you.
You have shown me you can have it all if you put your head in the game. I admire how you have things put together and have always shown me sister love ever since I was a baby in school. I remember how you used to hold our hands crossing the road after alighting from the school bus. How you ensured we were never left by the bus not because someone gave you that responsibility but because you considered Sarah and I your baby sisters. Thank you for always remembering to check up on me and applauding my little mile stones in life.
