I am just over a year a year natural…more like just over a year of being heat free and salon free. I finally resolved to quit having people handle my hair (mostly because I didn’t have a single person who could handle unblowdried hair.)
So how did that go…
In a world where there are opinions constantly being thrown at us, it gets increasingly difficult to enjoy who we really are. There is always room to be a little of something that we are not. How many times has someone around you told you how you can be a little thinner, a little fatter, a little taller, or even lighter? How many times have we dived into the internet to search for solutions and ideas to get our stomachs to the right size, or to achieve a standard of pretty that society has thrown on us?
Picture this: A HOLIDAY!! Isn’t that the time when everyone gets to brunch? yaay! Well if you are in this season, I have the perfect idea for you…Fried rice!!
I thought this was a good place to start. I have just marked my one year natural nappiversary.
I started this journey last year in February when I was tired of having my ends so thin, and so I quit heating my hair.
So its birthday month! Yey! Really excited (a bit less excited actually) it’s more like thankful to be marking yet another year. I have been thinking that I should start getting my health game strong and other related good goals ( am I the only one who has all this panicky thoughts as I grow older?). Today though, I thought to share with you a few of my lessons in chapter twenty three of life and hopefully I can encourage someone in a similar phase of life
I’m Nyake (aka hershtagmakini/her) an you probably have met me before in hashtagmakini.blogspot.com. I’m the female voice. (now you know). If we haven’t met though, I’m so glad that we finally get to meet here. I’m 5ft 4” a little chubby andkinda chilled girl/young woman musing about life.
