Beauty and the Burden


From October of 2015: What can I say about this image? As soon as I saw it, I fell in love! The model’s joy is undeniable. 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 more people need to hear.
