Out With The Old: Chop Chop

Out With The Old: Chop ChopBEFORE

This year I decided to dub it the year of growth. Out with the old, chop-chop. For me that’s personal because I’m tapping into talents that I forgot I had. Life happened as it usually does and I was existing without living. It took me awhile to snap out of it with the help of some love ones. Now, I’m fully aware of what I want, how I want it, and who I want around me.

Some people think letting go is the hard part when in reality your gaining self-worth. Letting go of negativity, bad habits, or death of a family member/friend (physically and emotionally) is all about your well-being. So, in the year of growth I let go of all the knots, split-ends, and unhealthy length that was keeping my hair from thriving (see what I just did). During my relaxed days, I would cut my hair as a letting go ritual. However, it took three years of being natural for me to realize that it was time. I transitioned for about a year which caused me to change, rethink, and regroup how I was caring for my hair as well as myself overall. I’ve had long hair all my life and it was time for a change in order for growth to occur so I’m saying out with the old in with the NEW-NEW with open arms.

Thank you for reading. Until next time, remember #confidenceiskey

    Beautiful! I understand about the significance of the chop. I’m natural too and remember cutting off the last relaxed ends. It was out with the old and in the new. I’ve been completely natural ever since!

      I think I’m in it all the way. It’s to late to turn back now. Thank you!
