I went to get my hair trimmed and colored today. While it did not turn out how I wanted it, as soon as she put the color on and it was more red than pink, I wanted to freak out, instead I thanked God that I had the funds to be sitting in that chair and with that, I would accept whatever the outcome may be. I can’t wait for the pink next time but, damn, it looks good! My hair is healthy and shiny and it turned out great.
This simple thing has given me an abundance of confidence within the last few hours. I loved how my hair was, that hair grew with me this last year. As it grew out, I grew. But, it was time to step into this next stage of my life in a big way and what grabs more attention than some bright hair? I am no longer a wallflower, I am not the caterpillar either, I am a full blown butterfly and I dare you to take notice.
My outside matches my inside now. And… the weight doesn’t matter. I am sexy and thick and while I plan to work on my health and fitness, I’m fine as hell and thick as f#$k, oh my Gosh, that’s my baby… lmao. I am ready to rock some family pictures on Saturday and be proud of the woman I am, completely me. YES!
Damn it! Whew! I feel like I am on top of the world. I know I keep sounding like a broken record but, I never knew I could feel like this. I never knew or expected to love myself so much. To be so in tune with my wants and needs and still have energy to dedicate to those I love. God is so good. I am blessed for the time and effort He has given me. I don’t squander it and I give thanks throughout the day. I never want to lose what I’ve fought for. I’ve earned my seat at the table.
It is the simplest things that make us happy. Life is not meant to be complicated. We are to love our people, love what we do and be kind always. Plain and simple. I’m ready. It’s my time. It’s our time. Just remember, nobody puts Baby in the corner! Haha…
Okay… enough for tonight. Thank you for your support and belief in me. I may not know who you are but, you’ve kept me going and I appreciate it. May I inspire you in the same manner. Take care and we’ll be back tomorrow. Xo
Oh… wanna see the hair?
