Move, Get Out The Way

For many years I've been trying to obtain a post-secondary degree. Due to changing my major a gazillion times, switching schools, incompleting courses & so on, I've been on this trek much longer than anticipated. If you're one who believes in astrology, my being a Gemini is partly the blame. According to my sign, I get bored very, very easily & am quite flighty, which describes me to a T. I find it very easy to get motivated but even easier to lose it. I am ambitious & set goals to attain them, but often fall short when I'm either close or don't see an end in sight. I am known to those close to me as the "wishy-washy" one. When I sit back & think about this, this isn't something I want to be remembered as when I pass on. This pegs me as indecisive, unsure, unreliable, fickle, just to name a few. In essence, being "wishy-washy," in my opinion, somewhat attacks my character. I consider myself to be a good-hearted person. I'm giving & love to share, especially when it empowers. Today, I'm making a conscious effort to combat flighty tendencies whenever necessary because it is no fun NOT being taken seriously. With all that being said, I realize that as much as I would like to blame unforseen circumstances, disabling obstacles, & my Zodiac sign for my setbacks the truth is, I've been standing in my own way. And now is the time for me to move out the way!!

Tis The Season To Be Nappy!!

Greetings Everyone.

A few months back I blogged about a book called Thank God I'm Natural. With the holidays just around the corner, I thought this would be a great stocking stuffer. I absolutely love, love, love this book. I refer to it for all sorts of things regarding napptural hair. Everyone should have this book as a resource guide.

Below is a message from the author herself.
