Feel Free Friday! What’s your story?

Good morning ♡

What’s your story?  It’s Feel Free Friday! Another Friday has arrived and I couldn’t be happier for the wknd to be here!  I don’t know about you but this week konda dragged on, but for each day let us be truly grateful. Today, please feel free and take the time to share your positive experiences. For me, this experience was simple  but has resonated through me ever since. Recently, I saw this woman during the morning rush to work. Her hair was styled in a nice bob cut with deep purple highlights. Some may say purple is an extreme hair color, but this was subtle and chic. I  admired from afar until one day I found myself walking alongside her. My inner voice said, “just tell her you like her hair.” So I did. Now, normally I’m a shy person, an introvert in alot of ways, but I went out of myself and said, “Good morning;  I  have to say that I just love your hair color :-)” Her morning game face, you know, the one we put on when we are heading to our jobs on a Monday morning, instantly warmed up into a big smile as she said, “Thank you so much!  You know, I’ve noticed your Locs and wanted to tell you the same thing! I just love them.  I’m thinking of doing the same thing with my natural hair! My good friend has referred me to.her Loctician but I haven’t called yet. ” Huh, I thought, who knew? And the conversation went on from there. We exchanged hair stories on our walk to work, about breakage and the beauty of wearing our natural styles. What stood out for me was her confidence.  Even in her storirs of wearing wigs and hair breakage, she had so much confidence in her beauty that it was a reminder for me, & inspired my thought for that day and still today: that we are beautiful, inside and out, & that even in our short comings we must always remember that there is always something to feel Joyous and confident about. I encouraged her to start her Locs if she was going that route and how it will help her hair grow even more (in 2yrs mine went from jaw length to below my shoulders;this encouraged her further). We thanked each other for sharing our stories and bid each other a good day. What amazing things happen when we step outside our comfort zones and explore uncharted territories, doing things we wouldn’t normally do. We realize that we are more powerful than we ever imagined.  I know this may be a simple story, but it spoke volumes to me. What’s your story? Hit me up! I’d love to hear from you;:-) Remember it is all confidential and I don’t share these. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆
