So after all of these years, twenty three to be exact, I've finally decided to throw in the towel. I've come to terms with my curly hair. I'm going to love it, and in return it's going to love me back. It's got to be a two-way relationship you know, me and my curly hair. But for years, I hate to admit that it was not a good realtionship. Yes, I neglected and abused my poor curly hair, straightening it and hiding it as much as possible. Not letting it freely come out and see the world. Or let the world see it for all that it counts. I was fine with it, but the Mr. not so much. I'll let you in on a little secret...He loves, no more like absolutely adores my curly hair. He once offered to pay me $1,000.00 if I wore my hair curly for 75% of the year. Now according to my calculations, that's like 75% percent too much of my curly hair. Yes, I am terrible at math and have no idea how to even figure out how many days that even is. But lets not talk about math, lets get back to my curly hair ok? You guys, I feel like shouting it off the rooftop. I wore my hair curly for 10 straight days. And do you know what? I loved every single minute of it!! It brought out something in me that has been hidden for all of these years. I was a lot more, dare I say, confident. It was completely liberating. You bet your bottom dollar I rocked that BIG, curly hair. So why have I been hiding it for all of these years? Probably because it's human nature to not want what we have. This rings true for girls especially. Can I get an amen? For years I envied my friends, with their silky smooth locks. I wondered, why was their hair so straight and perfect, with little effort, while mine was the exact opposite? I would spend ridiculous amounts of time each morning trying to get mine to look like that. I would wake up, literally before the sun came up each morning in high school, so I could straighten my curly hair. Only to be heartbroken the second it rained, and those dang curls came out. But now, I have a feeling that I'll be a bit more apt to dance in the rain, curls and all. I encourage you all to try something different for a few days, and see how you feel. Whether it be wearing your hair a different way, trying a new shade of lipstick, going au-natural, or even that new trend that you thought would never look good on your body. I promise that you will walk away feeling more confidant in your own skin. Ooh, and let me know how it goes, will you?
