Happy New Year!
Happy New Year curlfriends!
It’s that time of year when you get to hit the reset button on new goals. So are you ready for a fresh new start and new adventures?
I don’t about you, but I know I am, but first, let me recap the goals I set for myself in 2018 and whether or not I accomplished them.
Goal 1: To grow my hair to waist length
Goal 2: Launch a youtube channel
Goal 3: Be more consistent with my plant based meals
Goal 4: Purchase a Kangen water machine
And the results are that 3 out of the 4 goals were accomplished. Which goals were they you ask? Goals 2 through 4. Yep, goal 1 was not achieved (I’m really close though). And the funny thing is I don’t even care, which is the reason for today’s post.
Now I realize that I’ve rebranded myself as a natural hair blogger, and that’s cool but what I’ve also come to realize is that my blogging doesn’t just have to center primarily around my hair. Cause quite frankly, I’m kinda over this desire to obtain waist length hair, don’t get me wrong, once it happens I’ll be tickled pink, but at this phase of my life it just doesn’t require that kind of energy anymore. And to be even more honest, the pressure I was feeling (that I put on myself) to have waist length hair had my head in a funky place. I felt as though my followers were looking for me to reach my goal, and when it didn’t happen I felt like a let down, or that my method was flawed. All of this because my hair was not waist length. I was having all these crazy thoughts about what people were going to think and how I’m failing…Then I took a step back and had to check myself, yesss curl, I was straight tripping.
Yep, some how self doubt had found its way in and took up residency and lingered a little longer than it should have. I’m so grateful I recognized it early and removed it by surrounding myself with people with great energy.
So this year, I’m officially removing the pressure of obsessing over waist length hair, and showing my followers that you get the real me from now on. The good, the bad, and the ugly, lol. Now my true 2019 celebration can begin.
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I can direct my energy to what my new year mindset is all about, helping others like you overcome those basic natural hair challenges that may be keeping you from reaching your #hairgoals, while enjoying other aspects of my life.
I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can’t change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.
And that curlfriends, is my natural hair resolution for 2019! What are your natural hair resolutions for 2019?
