My Momma has sometimes called me a gypsy because I like to move around.
I seek change...
Change in scenery, change in jobs, etc.
You see, I'm the type of person who doesn't settle until it feels and flows just right.
Well, 8 years ago I began a fascinating and wonderful loc journey.
I grew my natural hair and loc-ed it along the way.
(I don't call them "dread-locs" because there's nothing dreadful about them.
That's where the term dread-locs came from.
Someone thought they were "dreadful" and the name took hold...)
This is one of the pictures that represents one of my longest lengths.
I yearned for change and cut my hair Summer 2009...
Then, my hair grew and grew.
I then cut it and found this style again in Summer 2010.
But you know what, I really didn't want to wear locs anymore and I knew that.
But, I was scared. I thought, "What will people say?" "Will my face look to fat?" "Will I dread the change and cry?"
But, I knew in my heart that I wanted to comb my hair. I wanted to feel my hair in it's loosened state again.
So, I made a huge decision and after much thought found my way to me again.
I'm loving me, inside and out!!
Remember, do what works for you...
peace, love, and authenticity
