6 Month Anniversary update!!

Standard

1. I am so happy to have crossed a small milestone!  I am so committed to stay natural and loving every minute of it.  While watching a fellow natural on YouTube this morning she said that natural has become more than just hair, it has also become a spiritual journey.  This is the way I feel as well, since I became natural I seem to be more at peace with myself,  I thrive to be healthy physically, mentally, spiritually.  I hope if you are reading this post and you are also natural you will use this hair journey to change things in your life and look outside the box.  I hope you will thrive to become a better person, eat healthy, exercise, meditate,  and enjoy life.

2. I had my first trim.

3. I am now wearing a protective style to give my hair a little break from manipulation and also to protect my hair from the cold weather.  My goal is to leave the Kinky Twists until Christmas and re-do them over the Christmas holidays.  Here is a picture of the final result.

4. Last month I hennaed my hair for the moisturizing aspect of it, I love how my hair felt thicker, then I decided to add indigo + Henna  for a little colour, I was aiming for a medium brown,  I was a little disappointed because the colour turned out much darker than anticipated.   I might have to play with the amounts to achieve the desired colour.  Stay tuned!!!…

Check out   as she was my “ha ha moment of the week!”

Sunday Inspiration!

I absolutely love this song “I Smile” by Kirk Franklin.  Take a moment out of your busy day and just “smile” even if you have no reason to smile.  When you meet a stranger just “smile”, when things are rough at work just “smile”.  With everything that is going on in this world we just need to take a moment and “smile”.   You look so much better when you “SMILE”.

“I Smile”

I dedicate this song to recession,

depression and unemployment.
This song’s for you.Today’s a new day, but there is no sunshine.
Nothing but clouds, and it’s dark in my heart
and it feels like a cold night.
Today’s a new day, where are my blue skies,
where is the love and the joy that you promised me
you tell me it’s alright.

(I’ll be honest with you)
I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain,
fell from heaven like a shower now.

(When I think how much better I’m gonna be when this is over)
I smile, even though I hurt see I smile,
I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I’ve been here for a while (what you do?)
I smile, smile..
it’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down.
Sure would hate to see you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile.

(the truth is)
I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain (the holy ghost power, yo)
fell from heaven like a shower now.

I smile, even though I hurt see I smile,
I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I’ve been here for a while
I smile, smile..
it’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down.
Sure would hate to see you give up now
You look so much better when you smile.

Can you just smile… for me.
Smile.. for me
Can you just smile… for me.

(look in the mirror)
ohohoh you look so much better when you
(always remember)
You look so much better when you smile
