Beauty and the Burden

What can I say about this image? As soon as I saw it, I fell in love! The model’s joy radiates from her face. From the way she’s posing with that guitar, it’s obvious to me that she’s found her bliss!

As for the words, they’re from a YouTube video I once posted. Years ago, someone was down on me for wanting to sport my natural hair. Meanwhile, something inside of me just wouldn’t quit. I sat down in front of my iSight, and tried to sound clever. The best thing I could come up with was,”Your beauty is not a burden.”

And truly, it was the best thing. It’s a message that more people need to hear.
