hair happy

congratulations to you on your first, full-head, twist attempt! you were so patient and diligent, keeping the faith high when hours had passed and your hands were weary. you kept positive and were encouraged as you saw it all coming together. and now look where you are! no one thought you could pull it off, but you did and you look fab, girl! use this as a metaphor for life. you can accomplish anything if you just keep focused, block out any negativity, and just do it. you will be sure to achieve if you keep a faith-filled attitude. you can do all things. ALL things. because Christ is and always be in you. but for now, just go on rockin’ your ‘do!

love you. stay happy.

BIG CHOP!

A belated Merry Christmas to the WordPress world! 🙂 My Christmas was nice. Pretty low-key. The day was spent cooking, and the evening opening gifts/feasting! Mama really did it this year. The food was soooo good. Comparable to Thanksgiving dinner 🙂 And praise God, lots of left-overs to still enjoy… gosh… I’m going to gain weight while I’m home… meh.

No, but I’ve really been thinking about what I want for 2010 and one thing I’ve been pondering is natural living. At 21, I’m still so young, so I feel like now is the time to establish how I’m going to live as an adult. When I was younger, I was a hard-core yogini. I was a strict vegetarian dedicated to yoga and pilates. It’s a wonder that I didn’t learn about natural haircare at that time! I wish I had. My hair would be so long by now! BUT! I’ve started it all over again, although on the flipside.

Back then I had the healthy living but unhealthy hair practices and now I have the healthy hair but unhealthy lifestyle… which brings me to the topic of this post.

Today… rather impulsively… I did my BIG CHOP! All the relaxed ends have been cut off! Which was a lot – like 5-6 inches of straightened hair in some places (esp. the back!). And I’m NOT an impulsive person. Not at all. Everything has to be planned. But, i don’t know… I just wanted to cut it all off… so I did! And I’m left with 5-6 inches of 100% chemical-free, all-natural hair! All me. It’s curly (type 4a) so with shrinkage it’s about 2-2.5 inches long. And it’s soooo soft 🙂

Ah, but honestly, I feel very torn right now. There’s a part of me that feels so proud. I never stick with anything. I tend to get really passionate about things and then quickly become passionate about something else and forget the thing to which I was originally devoted. (I seriously think I have ADHD-PI, but that’s for another post.) So it’s really amazing that I’ve stuck with this for the past 11 months. Albeit, I totally fell off the wagon with the vitamin regimen, but still. I’ve come this far, which is something to celebrate. But then there’s another part of me that doesn’t feel like rejoicing, but feels like understating this achievement. Ah, this is a happy post, though! And I want to keep it that way 🙂 So I’ll continue the rest in another post… or maybe I won’t. Why dwell, right?
