Winter Cut

I couldn't take it anymore. I let my friend straighten my hair, and my ends were so dried and fried. I experience a lot of shedding because I don't properly moisturize my hair. So, a trim, as usual, turned into me getting cut happy. I was only suppose to cut off the "rough" parts of my hair, but it turned out a lot of my hair was "rough", so I just chopped them all off!

Chop, Chop, Chop! :




My length? Maybe 1" shorter in some places.
My hair? Loves me for it.




Only problem? Old habits die hard. It's been days since I have properly conditioned my hair, and it's starting to look terrible all over again. Which only equals out to being: what was the point in cutting your hair, if you're only going to continue to not love it?
My verdict? Never be afraid to let loose of tired, dried, dead ends. Hair will grow back! It'll grow back faster, and most importantly: healthier.
 
Tell tale signs I needed a trim:
  • My hair was dry no matter how much I conditioned it
  • My ends looked like hay
  • I experienced a lot of tangles, even dreads

I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
