Women, especially black women, we don’t have to let society dictate our beauty. The hair you were born with is so beautiful. Your lips are so beautiful; your skintone is so beautiful. Men stop making our women feel schizophrenic about their looks. Love and embrace their natural beauty. When you see a sister embracing her natural state, congratulate her, encourage her, love her.
Sisters, even if all the men in the world told you that you were beautiful, would you believe them? It’s you that must look in the mirror and see your true beauty. Get a mirror, right now, and look closely and without comparing yourself to anyone else, find one thing about your face that is beautiful. Come on sisters, get closer. You know your nose is pretty or the shape of your eyes are unique. Maybe you have a beautiful birthmark and pretty skin. Now get even closer and kiss your image. Tell her you love her. Make peace with her. Alright now, that wasn’t so bad now was it? Okay, my sisters, enough for tonight. It’s time to sleep and rejuvenate and perhaps tomorrow you can come back to that mirror and pick up where you left off. Don’t worry, I will be doing it with you, looking in the mirror.
Peace and blessings, Queens. More love.
