Anonymous asked: Why do you think some people label those with a visible curl pattern “Good Hair" ?

I don’t know.. Many people have always been under the oppression the the loose curl type of hair or naturally straight hair is considered “good hair” and that the kinky/ tight curl isn’t. Atleast I know I was… as a kid that’s the reason why I started getting relaxers in the first place. It was because I didn’t like my hair’s natural state anymore.. I would get mad and throw tantrums because my hair wouldn’t lay down or because I couldn’t fix it to be pretty enough..
but as I got older I realized it’s not just about your texture anymore you know it’s like.. you get to know and love yourself for who you are. When I was younger I was trying to fit in.. but now I get to be me and i get to show myself off flawlessly. I mean a Loose curl is fine but it’s just great as a tight curl. It all really depends on you and your idea of how good your hair is to YOU..

You fall, you learn, you rise, You continue the Journey!

— Note to self

Dear self,

Your first inclination is not to show anyone when you are feeling weak. That’s the devil. You have a multitude of friends, family, supporters, who are here to give you strength and encouragement. It’s hard right now because what you’re doing is worth fighting for. Keep going and give glory to god even in your darkest of hours

sincerely, self

Heavenly Father,

Give me that shameless persistence.
Give me the inner strength to keep going no matter the spiritual weather. While I am walking on that narrow path to my destiny, I know the enemy will try to take my focus off you and to discourage me so that I will stop and turn around or live a life of mediocrity. But with you and your words in my mind and in my heart, I will keep going. They may take my possessions, but I will remember you said “you will restore what was stolen” they may ridicule me and tear me down, but I will remember what you said “great is my reward in heaven” When all hell breaks loose I will remember you said “faint not for my harvest is straight ahead” Thank you for teaching me that You + Me = A majority In Jesus name. Amen.

I sometimes get so trapped in my thoughts of the future or my past that I forget to experience, let alone enjoy, what’s happening right now.
Being scared is normal. My technique for erasing it is facing it. Be afraid and brave. Be nervous and courageous. The first few minutes of being scared is your test to see if you’re really serious about reaching a goal. Push through anxiety and come out victorious. Fear is just a test. Honor the feeling. Know it’s there. Know it’s temporary. Face it to erase it.

— I gotta remember this from time to time (via yazminfrances)

(Source: hedonistpoet, via mymiseducationx)

1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

So I saw this advice

papasfritas:

Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative.

I kind of like it.
