Do you believe you're destined for greatness?
Do you believe you can achieve?
Do you believe your image is dope?
Whether the answers to those questions are yes or no, understand you're correct. Do you know why? It's because you construct your image by your own views. Your confidence and poise is expressed by your own beliefs and understanding your worth.
Optimism is the language of peace and love. Living through life with vengeance and envy is not living at all. You allow others' success, beauty, poise--what have you--to define your own identity and where you stand in life. You think you will never look as skinny as the girl in the magazine or as pretty as the woman across the room from you because of pessimism and angst. You consistently compare your life to others and continue to sulk due to lack of confidence; lack of happiness; no peace.
Once you realize you have no one to prove your worth to except yourself, you will soon embark on the everlasting journey towards happiness. Don't worry about trying to compete and/or be everyone else. Embrace you, be proud and express yourself.
This project was produced to showcase the beauty in all women no matter your ethnicity, color, or cultural practices. You are a strong individual because of the power of your self-image and your image is dope.
