Crazy Hair

I used to have the most voluptuous hair growing up that I considered it an afro. I spent years wearing my hair up in a pony tail, buns, braids, basically anything I could to try and tame my unruly mane.

As I've grown from a child to an adult, I've begun embracing the wild side of my hair and I've learned to go with the flow! The trick is to be confident and love my hair, no matter what it does!

I'm liking this new me!

Braces

So are you ready for some big news? My braces are off!

I was so excited that words can't even describe. I took my first photo of myself without braces and I fell in love with how it turned out.

Mom keeps telling me it looks like I'm in a NOS ad but I was actually taking the picture for my friend because we used to have a sushi and NOS date once a week.

Anyways, I'm so happy with it that I just had to share!

Counseling

So for the past couple weeks I have been going to see a Christian counsellor to try and help me in the different areas of my life that I'm struggling.

My biggest things are the fact that I don't show emotion. Ever! Have you ever watched Star Trek? You know the Vulcans? Yes, that is pretty much me. My emotions are suppressed as far as I can push them and they're destroying relationships.

I also don't find arguments of any kind to be healthy which I found out is actually an unhealthy thought pattern. So I'm going to learn how to have healthy arguments with friends and family.

It's gonna be a scary ride. Let's do it!

Technology Is Taking Over

Tonight I had the joy of going outside and sitting on the front steps of my house. As I looked up and down the street of my quiet little neighborhood I could see flickering lights in the windows of most of my neighbors.

They were all watching television.

Is this what we have all become, we constantly complain that there's too much work to be done and no time to do it in, or that we are always so exhausted. We are wasting our time away with the garbage that's I the tv.

Don't get me wrong, I watch tv too. But maybe it's time to take a step away from it all and learn to enjoy the simpler and bigger things in life.

For the next week, challenge yourself to do something simple and pleasuring like taking a walk at dusk, or do something grand and crazy, larger than what you'd expect yourself to do like try rock climbing or zip lining. Just do something different, try to live a little more!
