I think about this quote every time I wear my fro lol. For those that don't know, my hair is 100% natural (no creamy crack *cough, cough relaxer* for me!) and I LOVE it. While I know that I will never be the "ideal portrait" of beauty I have accepted that and realize that in the age of weave, photoshop, and masking imperfections I am beautiful despite the fact that I don't resemble any one on a magazine cover. To those that embrace and love my fro... Thank you! A super special thank you to those that don't... You guys challenge me to love myself for who I am on an even deeper level :).
