Fro Tales

I was in the third month of my transition, and had reached the I’m-just-going-to-relax-it-and-forget-it stage. I hadn’t had a full head of hair in a long time, and resisting the urge to just shave it all off when it was driving me crazy wasn’t fun. Places that were once bare had hair. Growing out my hair cut, meant one section was longer than everywhere else; and after my big chop, it was bad… and it looked strange. I didn’t want to cut, relax or braid my hair, I just wanted to let it be… except “being” looked weird to me; I was totally losing it.

Then I met this dread that left me with some wise words… “I’ve never met anybody that didn’t look good naturally.”  I couldn’t help but wonder why I was uncomfortable with letting my hair be natural? And why did I think it didn’t look “good”?  I guess after growing up with hot-combs, curling irons, flat irons, relaxers, “softeners” etc., doing close to nothing with my hair and accepting how it really looked; took a lot more getting used to, than I thought it would.

Never turning back!

Change is scary, even annoying for most of us, but there’s no reason to be afraid of good change; you just have to let it happen. Growing up, we all had moments when our bodies/features etc., were not how we would have liked them to be. I feel this is the same for the ” natural hair journey”, there will be “awkward” moments, but they don’t last forever. You can either embrace and make the best out of the good and the bad moments; or let them get you down. Thanks to some wise words, a little patience, religious deep conditioning, some Shea butter and Jamaican castor oil; my hair is softer, stronger, and healthier. No more awkward moments and it also takes me less than five minutes to do my hair in the morning. Ah the life 🙂

peace and love

Needs me one of THESE!!!

We have Alexander to thank for introducing me to this awesomeness that is the Quantum Scale! And to Susan Taylor  (Founder) for her genius! My heart was moved when Alexander told me the story of how the Quantum Scale came about, and I think that has something to do with my I love this thing! (I know I know, I’m a big softie)

“In order to change you have to let go of your old self, You have to leave behind your old identity so you can speculate on who you can become.”

So….
  1.  How many of you hate weighing yourselves? 
  2. How many of you don’t even want to think about jumping on a scale? 
  3. How many of you get discouraged after weighing yourselves? 

I know I’ve answered yes to those questions once upon a time… Whatever your reasons may be for hating that friggin’ scale, worry NO MORE cause Susan has shed a ray of very bright light on the dark and dreary hate-weighing-myself blues

This is how it works; you step on and it secretly records your weight and whenever you step on the scale after that, it tells you ONLY the weight you’ve lost or gained. AH-MAZING!
Let’s face it, if you’re trying to lose weight and keep seeing those same THREE NUMBERS it gets a lil (A LOT) frustrating. Instead now you can look forward to minus one digit, minus two digits, or minus three digits! I think it’s pretty friggin awesome, talk about motivation! No one wants to see how much they’ve put on, but everybody LURRRRRVES to see how much they lost (maybe its just me ha ha ha). Your number one motivating factor when joining the Quantum Culture should be YOUR HEALTH, second should be those victorious numbers that reflect all your hard work! Even when you drop half a pound! KEEP GOING, half a pound leads to two… three… four…whatever your goal!!
I sooooo co-sign Quantum!
I can’t wait to try mine!!!!

“Get Happy. Be Happy. Go Quantum!”
