[Fun] If This Hair Journey Were a School, Would You Be a Student? Teacher? Other? And . . .

Greeings!  I hope this post finds you well! A while back someone on a hair forum created a thread entitled, "If This Hair Journey Were a School." She wrote: What kind of degree would you have?

Last Sunday! (Gratitude, Sermon Notes, and LifeHack Bible Antifragility Excerpt)

Today I'm posting about last Sunday -- about spirit and the Word and worship. About joy and gratitude. That's a bit of a change: So far the majority of my blog posts have been about hair. One of the reasons? Besides the obvious reason that my hair demands almost daily attention, it's because I'm loving… Continue reading Last Sunday!

[Soul] Trading Social Media for Social Meetups

I rarely go on Facebook anymore, and I was feeling pretty pleased with myself in terms of how disciplined I felt I was being about it. However, I didn't realize that I had basically replaced the time sink of Facebook with a forum. I gain so much from the forum and the wonderful people there.… Continue reading [Soul] Trading Social Media for Social Meetups

Hair Products Donation and Camille Rose Naturals $10 Apiece Haul

I Just Donated Lots of Products from My 4-Year-Old Hair Products Stash! Win-Win! I found a women's shelter that is requesting gently used black hair products! What?!?? This is awesome. It makes so much sense to pass on sanitary, gently used products to those who need them instead of throwing them away, wasted in the… Continue reading Hair Products Donation and Camille Rose Naturals $10 Apiece Haul

Update: Bible Memory Verse App and SiriusXM Radio Channel 128

One of the reasons I included a spirit/soul component in my 5-year challenge is that our spiritual and emotional states affect everything. If I'm feeling hopeful and positive and upbeat and energetic, I will work smarter and better and more consistently toward all of my aims. So much feels possible with a good mindset. So… Continue reading Update: Bible Memory Verse App and SiriusXM Radio Channel 128

[Hair/Soul/Spirit] “Keep Your Crown” (Oh, the Irony!)

This past Thursday I got my hair trimmed, as I discussed here, and I'm a little sad about it, for reasons discussed below. Ironically, the uplifting message that has had me deeply positive and God-confident of late is entitled "Keep Your Crown." (To hear the message at no cost, please visit this page and enter… Continue reading [Hair/Soul/Spirit] “Keep Your Crown” (Oh, the Irony!)

[Soul/Spirit] Songs, Ruthless Trust Excerpts, Message #512, and Mother and Son Wedding Dance :)

I strongly believe that environment and company kept are huge. As we know, the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10). This tells me we must protect our own joy as well as others' joy. It can be tough: Grumblers abound! I received a LOT of inspiration about this from a guy I… Continue reading [Soul/Spirit] Songs, Ruthless Trust Excerpts, Message #512, and Mother and Son Wedding Dance 🙂
