washed hair, braided and rolled with sponge rollers. yes, the kind from back in the day 😂 i just knew i was gonna have some tight hoopty curls but i think the braids helped out and i have another hair option.
I had major Angie Stone vibes this morning, and had to listen to some of her tunes. 🌟 One of my favorite songs by her is Happy Being Me. Our journeys in life will include both positivity and negativity. Remembering the valuable lessons along the way is what makes the difference. More importantly, we're alive another day! Until our moments here on earth end, there is room for improvement, adventure, and reaching new goals. While we aspire to accomplish more, we should take the time out to be thankful for simply being who we are. ☺
If it were Tarot it would be Queen of swords and the fool card. If it were playing cards it would be Ace of heart and 2 of spades. Happiness is unrealistic to me. Sadness is unrealistic to me. All the emotions in between are unrealistic to me. it’s just propaganda. I get the impulse to do things. Happy, sad, and all of the emotions in between are suggestive explanations for those impulses. I could get the impulse to cry all day because I feel unsatisfactory with my life, to say I’m sad would be a suggested explanation, not the experience itself. What I’m experiencing is a space to purge the thoughts that no longer serve my evolution. To achieve that, you first have to be conscious of that’s what’s going on. If you’re unconscious in that space you’ll be uncomfortable in that space. You’ll feel the impulse to cry and be overwhelmed by it instead of empowered by it. The same goes for happiness... I could get the impulse to be content with my surroundings. To say I’m happy is a suggestive explanation, not the experience itself. What I’m experiencing is a space for growth. Innately I’m encouraged to grow and evolve so that experience feels good to have. Or even being in love... another suggestive explanation for an impulse... The impulse is simply to connect. The experience is a space for mutual growth between individuals. Emotions aren’t natural, they’re just words u learned to explain the impulses you feel..... being conscious takes strength. being in control of your experiences takes patience. evolving takes authenticity.... anyways, I saw this statue years ago at the art institute and felt like I could relate to it a lot, fast forward to now I can relate even more.. and aero zeppelin perfectly depicts my mood. #foodforthought#mythoughts from #myexperiences#locaholics
Back when I wore frontals. y’all might be mad or in denial about this but 🤷🏾♀️ truth is this type of shit is very antiblack! And honestly the whole frontal industry is just exploiting black women’s internalized self hate and profiting off it. I woke up one day and just felt like I didn’t look like a black woman with this in my head, rather a dark skinned white woman. I felt like I was depriving myself of the entire black woman experience by throwing this on my head lbs, this shit weird af when I look back at it. Like wtf was I really doing spending damn near $300 to cover up my kinks and have this look?? Yes, there are black people with naturally straight hair but let’s be real: the idea that someone’s hair is more “laid” or cute like this is based off a European standard of beauty. Bro I was fucking tweaking. Y’all tweaking too still even buying it because honestly, truly, the shit is racist. #mythoughts#frontal#loxxhair#locaholics
