If this post had a theme song, we can go ahead and queue O.T. Genasis “Cut It” and let the rest ensue. After going back and forth since the fall of last year on to cut or not to cut, I decided to just go for it. It’s hair right? I mean we can go in yet again with another song selection from the lovely India Arie and understand, I definitely am not my hair, however the comfort and attachment is hard to break when you’ve gotten your hair to a certain point. To be honest, as much as I was told my hair is so long and growing, let’s be real, it’s been the same length for a while, it just happened to look bigger when anything close to humidity hit it. Them ends was struggling, I just had a good way of hiding it. Plus not going to an actual hair stylist and doing my own home DIY salon didn’t help either. It was only natural to chop it off and start fresh. Possibly a deeper meaning behind it since in the same week I also decided to cut ties in a relationship that just wasn’t working no matter how much I wanted it to. Ha! Something like my hair. Not wanting to let it go, constantly being on the fence and eventually realizing you just got to cut your losses while you’re ahead. Guess this was all aligned to happen as it should, a new start, welcoming a path more in tune with the person I am supposed to be instead of the person I thought I should be for everyone else. Now to the hard question. How do you short haired ladies maintain these type of styles? Long gone are the days I can throw it in a bun and call it a day, that would be like something too easy right?! Once I figure out how to get it to look like something outside of going to the salon, then we’ll be cooking with grease : )
I’m about 24 days late, but uh, happy new year and happy new decade! I’m late but it’s all good because my year has begun on one of the happiest notes to date that I’ve been on go mode since. That can only be a good indication that the remaining year and decade will follow suit. And guess what? I’m accepting all those good vibes…PERIOD. Let’s just say a lot of talking was done in the last decade, now it’s time to show up and handle business, financially, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and in my relationships. Ya girl got things to get done and goals to knock out. This year started out in New Orleans full of spirit and while there I had a lot of revelations that let me know everything will work out as it should. If this month alone is a reflection of how the rest of the year will be, listen I’m all in. So if you got goals and dreams, don’t let them die as just a thought. I’m telling you and myself, go out there, disrupt some sh*t, handle your BUSINESS, and let’s make this the best year/decade ever!
