Oooooh back to short hair. Le sigh. (It's ok cause I do love my natural hair but peep IG story if you wanna know why lol) here is a valid lesson and reflection from today---- TBH I'm way less of a control freak than I used to be. I smile more, breathe in more consistent patterns, my right armpit sweats less (cmon can't be the only one who has one armpit that's like "hahaha let's let everyone know you're super nervous!). I focus much less on what happens if X happens and more on what the heck is happening right now. So while my hair was one big dreadlock that was as if it basked in bubble gum, honey, and a duct tape potion or something all I could think about was how calm I was & how the old version of me would have probably involuntarily cried due to inability to control emotions/navigate an uncomfortable situation. Take control of yourself. Learn that you aren't what happens to you (chaos, mistakes, life) but you are more of how you react to it. This shows true character & helps you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. ✅ today's strength was remaining calm even tho I hadn't eaten since 8 am and we were goin on 2pm with this hair biznes.
