It’s funny how something as simple as hair (which is dead) can change your life! Since I’ve been relaxer-free I feel like I look at things with more insight and try to determine how to make my life better for myself and my family. I know it sounds cliche, “But I am not my hair”! I’m hoping that by becoming a more positive person that I will also be a better role model for my 2 daughters.
I’ve recently started journaling and reread the book “The Secret”. It is based on the law of attraction and claims that positive thinking can create life-changing results such as increased wealth, health, and happiness. The Secret describes the law of attraction as a natural law that determines the complete order of the universe and of our personal lives through the process of “like attracts like.” That is, as we think and feel, a corresponding frequency is sent out into the universe that attracts back to us events and circumstances on that same frequency. For example, if you think angry thoughts and feel angry, you will attract back events and circumstances that cause you to feel more anger. Conversely, if you think and feel positively, you will attract back positive events and circumstances. The law claims that desirable outcomes such as health, wealth, and happiness can be attracted simply by changing one’s thoughts and feelings. It says that our thoughts are magnetic and they attract thoughts of similar frequency.Whatever thoughts we dwell upon,we attract similar thoughts in our life. [Read more…]
Spring is such a great time of year. Flowers begin to bloom, the days get longer, and my allergies go into rare form! LOL
Last November I wrote about doing my Big Chop. After 3 months of growing out my TWA I decided to get my first trim. That was mistake #1. I made an appointment to have it done at the Paul Mitchell School since they do the most O’mazing scalp massages. That was mistake #2. My oldest daughter also needed a trim and deep conditioning and thought what better way to spend the afternoon. That was mistake #3. To make a long story short, let’s just say my almost 3 inches of kinky, coily hair was reduced back to about 1/2 inch. But in the spirit of being a good mother and not going all Sh’Qwan (my alter ego) on the student, I embraced my cut and hummed to myself, “I am not my hair…”
So here we are a month shy of Spring. I’m ready to begin my hair journey again and this time around I have the pleasure of sharing my story with THE KINK. I am so excited and honored to help others in this area of their life. It’s pretty amazing how something as simple as hair can have such an impact on one’s life. Since parting ways with the “creamy crack” I’ve also been looking at other ways in my life to be healthier and a better role model for my girls.
One of my biggest influences right now on living a more holistic lifestyle is Dominique of ALL THINGS O’NATURAL. She is such a positive person and has a no-nonsense approach to her business. I was so happy when I came across her fan page on facebook. In the beginning of my journey I was at a loss for what to do with my TWA. Dom makes some awesome products and her customer service is top notch. Please be sure to check out her website for all the yummy smelling items that she whips up herself. —–> ATON products.
Well last but least…my allergies! Please pray for a sistah because Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on my nose. I’m sneezing like it’s just straight up Spring time outside. And let’s not even mention that it’s mid-February and 60 one day then 35+ the next. O_o
Take care and remember life is too short to not enjoy the little things!
Laugh, Love & Enjoy Life!
