Dear black beauty,
Despite how challenging it is to be black, know that you are not alone. They might have called you names, neglected you and questioned your beauty, but I wish to add my voice to say that you are bold and beautiful, loved and cherished and I celebrate you.
Wear your color as a crown of beauty not to boast but in awe of God because He made you in His image. You may look dark on the outside but inside you, there’s so much light crying to be released after all, light shines so much brighter in darkness which can be seen in your sun-kissed skin. ‘your beauty should not come from outward adornment or elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine cloths. Rather it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit which is of great worth in God’s sight.’(1 Peter 3:3-4) that’s the kind of light you need to shine. Love your skin a little more and you’ll be amazed at how much glow it radiates. You define your beauty. You decide how people treat you and love you. The way you love yourself is how they’ll love you right back. If you look down on yourself, they won’t hesitate to do same and even match over you. So get your confidence back and show people the real you.
If you think of your skin tone as a flaw, remember that you are God’s handiwork. Girl, the creator of the beautiful wonders of this earth made you! You are fearfully and wonderfully made, created to do good works. Everything about you is for your specific purpose, for He makes all things beautiful in its time. Wishing you were more or less light skinned is like wishing you were someone else. Rather than envying one another, let us learn to compliment and celebrate each other. How you celebrate others is the same way you’ll be celebrated. The moment you understand that you are unique and learn to accept yourself just the way you are, life will become so much clearer and things will start falling into place.
Finally, whatever your shade of black is, I celebrate you.
Remind another sister just how beautiful she is, we all need that!

Phenomenal write up girl. I love that
Great article,awesome reminder.
But sth pricked me”you define the way others treat you”.I’m thinking there’s not a 100%truth in the statement,as there’ll always be persons around who will always want to see our flaws and we’ve got no control about their attitude towards us…but rather, we’re responsible for how we see ourselves and we respond to them…
WoW. That’s so true. Thanks Fomenky for the remark. However, I may not be 100% correct but I believe that to a certain level, the way you see yourself and think of yourself causes others to see you the same way. They way you present yourself to others is the way they will see you. It’s more psychological…
Mmmh.i get the picture.
Psychology… Composure..and all??
I see this going somewhere, I know it won’t end here because people who know their worth have the “Annoying” attitude (laughing) of not staying in one area of emergence and success they always keep growing.
This Is a great piece Sandra.
Wow Sandra this is the real deal (just trying not to use ‘great’), I know this won’t end here as people like you have the “annoying” (chuckles and smiles) of not staying in one area of success or emergence.
When you use the advices of the Father to intend advice people, there is no such think that defines love best.
All I can say is more grease to your elbow and you inspire me to be annoying.
Awwwwww (chuckles). Trust me you’re more annoying, in a good way( smiles). Thanks a lot. I appreciate. Much love ❤️
I love this mum
So much relieved and appreciated now
Awwwwwwwn, I’m so happy to hear this. Thanks dear
