Netflix hosts a wide variety of series that capture the vibrancy of modern womanhood, whether it’s the solidarity expressed by the diverse inmates on Orange Is the New Black, the inspired efforts of a tenacious young Queen in The Crown, the emotional and physical strength of Jessica Jones or the outspoken, unfiltered wit of Chelsea Handler as she relates to women across multiple generations. These characters represent diverse and complex backgrounds that reflect the idea of “empowerment” in numerous ways.
In honour of the newest leading female character, Queen Elizabeth II, a few leading women of Netflix originals have drafted notes to their younger selves – and everyone everywhere – highlighting some of the universal truths, challenges, and wisdom that transcend place and time, that modern women everywhere can relate to.
Inspired by these letters, I have written a letter to my younger self.
I am going to keep this short because I know you are always busy and rarely take time for yourself. I would love for you to change that.
Keep living by your motto “Don’t sweat the small things.” , it has worked well for you.
Your family is beautiful and I can not wait for you to meet them!
