As time goes on it really important to grow. Not only just spiritually, but mentally as well. We each as individuals have lessons and paths that we are on that will in the end shape us into the person we are destined to be. It’s important to keep that in mind as you are growing. Allow yourself to grow, by removing your ego and pride. Ego and pride really just hinder the progress your spirit is trying to make, as you become a better person. Take care of yourself as you grow. It’s important to love yourself the most, because if you don’t love you no one will. Do not look for happiness inside other people, because you will always end up being sad. Always, and if you are happy it is that fake out happy to try to trick your mind into not being sad. But deep down, underneath all of the lies you say and think, to make yourself feel better, you will still be sad. It’s time to grow as a person, so that you can be the best version of yourself. Others are in your life to help you grow. Some lessons take years to learn and some don’t. Allow yourself the time and the mindset so that you may learn with ease. You are to always be learning as you age. Learn from your past and move on. Keep the commitment you have made with yourself to love yourself the most. Occasionally this task may seem daunting or difficult because it is easier to fake happy and love someone else, but eventually you have to be happy on your own. Fall in love with the person you are becoming. It takes effort and time, but it will be worth it.  You have to accept the other versions of yourself, knowing that it is in the past. But you have to grow. Occasionally you will miss yourself, as silly as that sounds. By that I mean miss the old you, before your life started making bigger changes. But experiences shape you. I have no regrets from anything I’ve ever done, because I have done what I wanted.  I suggest that you do the same, allowing yourself to grow and loving yourself more each day. You have to make peace with yourself so you may grow. Love yourself the most. Fall in love with yourself a little bit more each day, so you can truly be happy.



You are the only one who is truly able to define what you are worth. You define your boundaries, how you carry yourself, what topics you discuss, and who you surround yourself with. When someone is not treating the way that you deserve, it is your responsibility to do something about it. Remember your voice is important. Everyone has the right to speak their mind and it is okay to be different. In addition to knowing your worth you need to know others worth. If you are in a relationship, acknowledge the other person. Allow them to really know what you mean to them or else they will not know. You have to know that everyone in your life is special and worth something (some more than others). Let your ego and pride go, so that you can communicate effectively. But, don’t allow yourself to stay in any situation if you aren’t happy. Am I saying that if you get in a fight one time to end the relationship? No, not at all that’s ridiculous. I’m saying that if you are consistently unhappy, change it so you are happy. You are worth so much more. Don’t allow yourself to be taken advantage of, because if someone is repeatedly disrespecting you, the blame is not only just on them but it’s on you too because you are allowing it. People can only do to you what you allow. In addition to all of this, don’t listen to others opinions on your situation. You are the only one who truly knows what you want. Connect with yourself on a deeper, more spiritual level and allow yourself to really know what you want. Give in to temptation and let yourself have fun. It will all be okay in the end. I always say that it will all be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay it’s not the end. Have fun, go out, and live. You’re worth it.



Winter Hair

As the cold approaches, we all know that it can totally damage your hair. The air becomes more crisp, and if scarves and hats are not your hair’s friends. My suggestion is: oil, wrap and protective style. It’s currently what I’m trying now. I’m currently on a journey to grow out my hair (the progress is beautiful). I have been using a little (like a drop, rubbing it in my hands, wiping it on my towel and then applying) of coconut oil to the ends of my hair. I love coconut oil because it’s supposed to seal your ends. But the most effective non-oil I have is Silk by Design Essentials. It helps really with shedding. Winter months allow for a lot of shedding, due to lack of moisture (besides the shedding period your hair will naturally go through as new growth comes in). Don’t forget about drinking more water! Water helps to moisture your hair, and increasing your daily intake can really show results. I also have started to wrap my hair which helps. Wrapping spreads the oils among your scalp so it keeps your hair moisturized. Protective styling also helps because your ends are tucks. I love the styles with protective styling too. Wrapping, oiling and protective styling can really help grow your hair out if you do it right. Watch the amount of oil too, I use barely any because no one wants to walk around with super oily hair. Lengthen the time in between washes. It will allow your hair to keep the natural oils longer. I hope this helps! Feel free to comment your results!
