Editor's Letter: Boundaries Are A Black Woman's Best Friend

So, this is the final newsletter of 2018. I can’t lie, I’m glad. I need the break.

This year I have learned so much. I’ve learned so much in the past week alone. I’ve made mistakes, doubted myself, felt like a failure, but I’ve had wins, both public and private. I’ve experienced the most indescribable joy and heavenly moments of peace. I’ve cried, laughed, felt moments of anger, I’ve loved and felt loved and I know that anyone reading this has probably felt a few of those emotions this year.

Not that I need to tell you this, but life is unpredictable. Even as I started to write this newsletter on a packed train on a Thursday morning, I woke up this morning feeling great, looked at some emails and immediately felt inadequate because of work. With life being so unpredictable, I wanted to end with a newsletter with, what has carried me through this year and that has been having boundaries.
