A real woman is a woman who does not flip the pages of magazines seeking for an alternate reality with a longing for a definition of what she "should" look like because despite the hours spent on airbrushing those models, Photoshop still does the ultimate. Why bother?

A real woman is a woman in any shape, size, skin color or hair color who focuses on building her inner self while embracing her many flaws, knowing that those unique imperfections truly define her beauty.

You are beautiful! If you don't see it and admit it, then no one else will.
