Patience......I Guess Its a Virtue

-Why won't my hair grow faster? I'm really getting frustrated and impatient but.....whining won't make it grow any faster. I call this my second Big Chop and it was on January 13 (my sorority's Founders Day).

-I have two very mobile 'toddlers' that laugh, scream, kiss and sometimes hit each other. Its so much more fun for me now that I can almost entertain them both with the same thing.

-We moved 3 weeks ago and are finally settled and unpacked. While we've been getting everything settled and changed, I started reading the most amazing book ever. It has really made a difference in how I view and 'hope' for things. Its called Why Some Positive Thinkers Get Powerful Results by Norman Vincent Peale. To me, its relatable for my career and personal life situations. For some reason, I feel like when I turn 30, next February, I'll have wings that fly me up to the next level of growth and wisdom. Recently I realized that "um no, it doesn't work like that." So, I'm taking action to center myself spiritually and logically so that I'll enter a new decade of life learning to not have regrets in my decisions regarding people and [my] attitudes.

"Positive thinkers develop the mental and spiritual capacity to keep their thinking operative, whatever the situation. They are mentally controlled, rather than emotionally conditioned."

-I would love to drink one glass of red wine every night but I think its a little overkill. Well, actually I think its because I'd rather trade that for an oreo or two.
Damn shame, I know....but at least its not those 'dadblamed' Chips Ahoy.

-I just bought some Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) and it works wonders on my skin. I mean it is amazing! The t-zone on my face started to develop bumps, probably from my lack of water, and after 3-4 days of applying it to that area......the bumps were completely gone!

-The JBCO has also thickened up the hair around my edges and nape. I ordered it off of amazon for $9.99 and I am definitely a believer in its uses.

-The weather in the upper part of Texas has been pretty bipolar lately. It'll be in the upper 70's/low 80's for two weeks and then in the upper 50's/mid 60's the following two weeks. I don't know whether to pull my shorts out or my sweaters. I don't want to wear sweaters with shorts, lol. No no no. I'll be glad when this weather picks a temperature range and stays there!

I'm so excited for the late spring weather!


  1. Awww, paience love, it'll grow and soon out of control happily ;)) I LOVE your hair, it's such a pretty look on ya.. The weather has been all sorts of cuuurazy here lately, from 80's to 40's O_o.. I can't hang.. lol.. Miss reading your posts, stopping in to say hello, hope you and the awesome boys are swell.. Wishing you a beautiful week.. xoxoxo..

  2. Wow! I'm reading this at the perfect time! (I had to take a test for work and invested so much time and energy and failed it)..

    I know that the hair journey can really be trying on our patience but try to just appreciate the process and learn your hairs likes and dislikes. Remember that setbacks are going to happen.

    I also love the bullet about toddlers. My almost two year old has been getting scrappy with my older kids. Scratching, Kicking, Hitting and Such. You know those "First they're sour, then they're sweet" candy commercials? Reminds me of Sky, because she'll smack you and then want to hug and kiss you and tell you she's sawwy. :)
