Transitioning

This post has ABSOLUELY nothing to do with my hair journey. I would first like to start off by saying that the reason I stayed away for two days was due to a bet. I do not like gambling, but I am competitive. I agreed to play a competitive game of Uno against my boyfriend;…

I am not my hai…

I am not my hair, I am not this skin. I am not your expectations, no….. I am a soul that lives within. –INDIA.ARIE I have to be completely honest. When I first cut my hair, I felt ugly. I actually had long hair at some point in my life and then I decided to…

Thank You

I did not expect anyone to read anything that I was writing. I started this blog for myself and I am so glad that others can relate. I knew my story was powerful and I knew my words had meaning; but it’s great seeing it. So this post is to say thank you, to all…

Society tells u…

Society tells us that we are not beautiful if our hair isn’t straight and long. If we aren’t a size two or below. If we are not tall with long legs. I am none of those things. I have none of these things, but I am still beautiful. So I guess society was wrong. The…
