Making a change

I have always had curly hair. When I was little I would cry and cry as my mom tried to brush it out for pony tails. Even though she was as gentle as could be, my sensitive scalp just couldn't take it. After that, she did what most mothers of curly haired daughters do, she had it all cut off. I remember going to school and my best friend saying, "you look just like a boy" and I just cried. I don't blame my mom at all, as an adult I know curly hair isn't always easy. In 2000, I discovered and it was like the skies opened up and the angels sang. Suddenly, my hair was easy, I stopped fighting it, embraced it, and ended up with what I think is pretty amazing hair.

So why am I getting it straightened?

That's right, I am taking the plunge and getting a Brazilian Blowout this weekend. I would not consider a relaxer as I am not interested in having my hair grow out and be all weird. The blowout wears off, much like a demi-permanent color. I am a little apprehensive. It's one thing to get my hair blown out and wear it straight for a couple days, it's another to know that every day, when I wake up, I will have straight hair. Supposedly, you can wear it curly or straight, but I am not the curliest of girls, so I don't know if that will hold true for me or not.

Stay tuned, there will either be cheers or tears. :)

Pay attention!!!

Someone told me about Notes from the Universe and since there is nothing I love more than uplifting emails, I subscribed. Funny thing though, when the Universe started emailing me, I started thinking, I should do these things, because as we all know, when the Universe tells you to do something, it behooves you to sit up and listen. FYI, the Universe also isn't really a big fan of run on sentences like that one. Just sayin'.

Today, amongst other things, the Universe told me
All things are indeed looking possible and you alone decide how your tomorrows
will unfold.


All things are possible and it is up to me to affect the change I desire to see. But what does this mean for me in the trenches? I guess the Universe can't tell me everything and I will have to figure it out for myself. Thanks Universe, who loves ya, baby!!
