Own Who You Are

Yes, it’s still me but I made a big change! I decided to try something new with my hair. Every year around this time I make a change with my hair such as a new color or new style. But this time around I needed some DIFFERENT.  I mean I cut my hair before but not this short. To me cutting my hair meant cutting of dead ends and letting go of a lot of things.  It was like my hair was my comfort blanket. The days before my haircut I took a social media break to clear my mind.  I didn't tell many people I was cutting my hair because I feel they would talk me out of it because of their expectations of my hair. But this was a decision I had to make for me. 

"A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life." -Coco Chanel 

A few weeks back blogger Kryzada passed away and I’ll be honest it bothered me so much. Because here I am worrying about what should’ve, could’ve would’ve happened. Why this person is acting this way and why this hasn’t happened? This beautiful soul fought to the very end of her life. She continued to do what she loved despite her situation.  So why couldn’t I do the same? Why couldn’t I let of the things I can’t change? WHY AM I WORRYING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO COULD CARELESS ABOUT ME?  Just move on…..

Owning Who You Are means accepting who you are right in your current situation.
Knowing that you have the POWER to change, grow, evolve every chance you get.
You don’t have to conform to standards that the world has set. Taking responsibility for your actions and taking control of your life.  Being able to check yourself and say “Hey um what are we doing here “ or “ Am I being the toxic person.”  Be real with yourself…. This past week I found myself speaking positive things and giving myself compliments. 

"I know for sure that only owning who and what you are can step into the fullness of life."
- Oprah Winfrey

I encourage you to own where you are in life and who you are. No matter what situation you're in because it's all apart of the journey that you're on. 

With Love,
