SHE: An Open Letter to the Modern Woman

Post By:
Karey L. Bosack Greenstein, J.D.
Director of Planned Giving
Memorial & Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundations
Guest Contributor:

She sits in silence

Deafened by the racing thoughts

of the never-ending mental load


She prays for strength 

Weakened by the constant wants and needs and expectations

To give, to nourish, to comfort, to support, to guide, to teach,

To love, to provide, to protect, 

To be everything every second of every hour of every day

To everyone but herself


Her heart is full

Yet at times the emptiness surrounds her

The guilt of melancholy

Pleads for her to escape

Back to the silence


Alone with her thoughts

Vulnerable, unguarded, exposed to the rawness

of her own humanity


She reminds herself

It is okay to STOP

It is okay to breathe

It is okay to unload the mental load and just be

One with herself

It is okay to ask for help

It is okay to seek forgiveness

It is okay to focus on herself

It is okay...

IT IS OKAY.


Because she knows

She has no super powers

Yet she is powerfully super


SHE IS POWERFULLY SUPER.


She is my grandmother

She is my mother

She is my sister

She is my aunt

She is my daughter

She is my friend

She is you

She is me


Empowered and inspired,

She's got this.


You've got this.
