Motivational Monday: "Mirror Mirror on the Wall"

Mirror Mirror on the Wall............... What is BEAUTY after all?  When you look in the mirror what do you see?  I remember growing up, my parents always made me feel really pretty.  Then I had to leave my home and go to school were my dark skin wasn't so favorable.  I was called names such as "darky" "black" and the worst of them all "SKILLET". 

I remember asking myself, "why are kids so mean?"  More importantly, why did it matter so much what they thought of me?  One thing is for sure, I was thank for a home with other darkies that knew and appreciated what we acquired from our ancestors was beautiful!!!

Fast forward to my adult life and being dark NEVER phased me!  I relished in my dark skin and often times during the summer looked forward to it becoming even more chocolaty.  My brothers call me "black" as a term of endearment and I answer proudly because "My Black Is Beautiful". I love who I am and what I look like; from my naturally curly hair, big brown eyes, half of a dimple when I smile; my white teeth, lips, hips and thighs. Even though I work out to keep fit, know that -YES! I love my beautiful brown self through and through.

What do YOU see when you look in the mirror?
