Hair and Patience....

About a year ago...I embarked on this natural hair movement that has hit every black girl...everyone really is more into loving your natural self and making you the best "natural" self you can but as I continue on this process...I see how much this will teach me in a few other areas of life....

PATIENCE.....man....so many people struggle with this....esp myself...I have always wanted..what I wanted and usually I work to make sure I can get it but the reality of this world is that....nothing is ever gonna come to you as you want it ALL the time and so patience is needed.......

Right now my hair is in that, I want to cut it stage....it's at the stage where it's not sure what it wants to do but it's just there and a lot of times we are at those stages in life....we are kinda in limbo...not where we started but not where we want to be and it can be very frustrating....we're ready to "cut it off" so to speak but that's the difference in the people in the world....do you want to be someone that "cuts it off" or quits when it takes too long....???

NOT ME...no sir....I really have never been one to stop going after something I know is mine...something I know was made for me....

The man in my life is an excellent example and reminder for me....we met at 19 years old in a business law class and I will never forget the day we made eye-contact....I was young...insecure and not ready but I knew there was something there....we became close...very close...best friends really but it got complicated...we were friends with benefits but I wanted more...I was more....I did everything for him and worked to show him every sec of every day that I was the women for him but nope....he didn't get it so I had to do something...I had to do me...I moved away...almost 8 years...but stayed in contact...made sure he knew that I never forgot him.....that I was HiS...I was made for him and had never stopped loving him and that when he was ready....I would be would be ready for him....fast-forward...we are now 31 and have reconnected on the level we are ment to be....I am his "Rib" as he likes to put it.....his original helper...I was made for him and him for me and I'm truly so thankful for the patience that we were able to show to allow our lives to get here....allow our paths to come together as they were purposed to....

That is just one example of what patience has done for me in my world and what it can do for you in your world.....it reminds me what is to come....if I just stay with it...stay in patience with all things.....my life and hair gonna be exactly what I want...when I want....LBVS....!!!!
