Love One Another-Lent Day 6

Standard

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

This scripture was so perfect for today. It is good to have days where all you do is focus on others and how you can better help them. Today I had the opportunity to hear about humility. I also learned about humility. Then I had the opportunity to put humility into action. Each day is such a gift. Only when I stop to think about all that I have been through am I humbled. To be just in my current moment is humbling. 

I am so grateful for my friends and family. Having people in my life who not only care about me but who have patience with me to listen and guide me on my path. When I think I have a problem or concern, I really don’t. That is such a blessing. Knowing that other people can understand me even when I am still learning things about myself is a true gift. 

Today I did not completely focus on myself. I had many moments where I just listened and soaked in my surroundings. I love to learn new things. I know that I can learn the most when I am quiet. When I don’t have all of the answers no matter how much I think I can do, that means I can still grow. 

One funny thing that happened today, I had a piece of vegan cake(I was so excited about it) and I don’t know what happened but it just didn’t taste sweet. My brain could not compute. It looked like chocolate cake, it smelled like chocolate cake but it sure didn’t taste like it. I only ate half of it and ate the rest after a wonderful dinner. 

I also found out about some supplements that I need to take asap. My good friend and sheroe told me that I have to accept that I am getting older. I am working on it. So hopefully I have this stomach issue figured out soon.

I got some new conditioning cream and some oils for my hair(we shall see what happens). I think it made my hair bigger lol. I am really trying to go back to basics with my hair regimen. Currently it is shampoo, conditioner, and gel. Some days it is conditioner, gel, and mousse. So now it may be conditioner, conditioner cream, oil, and gel. 

As much as I don’t want the day to end, I have to try and get some rest for tomorrow. 

Namaste

30 Days Of Truth(11)Something People Seem To Compliment You The Most On

Standard

     I usually am complimented the most on my clothes and my hair. I am trying to learn how to take compliments on my clothes because I usually add “I got this at a thrift shop”. Well, I found out people just want to hear “Thank you”. So thank you to everyone who likes my style 🙂

     I get complimented on my hair a lot(usually because it is so huge, sometimes because people like the curl). So again, thank you for liking my hair. It totally makes up for the huge chunk of my life when my Mom totally hated it 🙂 My Mom wore a huge fro in the 60’s, so I think its only natural for me to do the same lol.

     So I spend a lot of time telling anyone who will listen to go natural and then hear all of the excuses for why they can’t go natural. My attitude is how can you not accept what is growing out of your head? If I lived in  a perfect world, my hair would be loc’ed. But since I don’t, I settle for my curly whatever shape its in today 🙂

    I could probably talk for hours and hours about natural hair but since I have other things to do today, I won’t. 

Is it hard for you to receive compliments?
