It seems like I haven't done a written post in FOR. EH. VER! and I feel so horrible about that.  No only do I feel bad for the people who may occasionally check my blog for new content, but I also feel like I've kind of betrayed myself by deigning not to post.  I started blogging out of a desire to have more than just my YouTube videos to document my journey.  But without uploading new pictures regularly, there will appear to be visual gaps in the progress I've made thus far.  As far as pictures go, I think it will appear as though I went from TWA to medium length with no in between stage, which is completely unrealistic. 

After some recent, unexpected changes in my personal life, I've decided to rededicate my energy to meticulously documenting my hair's growth.  I think I had allowed myself to become distracted by things, people, and situations around me and I forgot all about what's really important.  This journey is about so much more than just hair for me.  It's a very spiritual experience accepting myself as I am, regardless of what the status quo or popular opinion may be.  Any opposition I encounter (which, admittedly is much less than when my journey began) serves only to prove to me that I'm on the right track.  I've found that the road less traveled seems to be where my feet are most comfortable.  The beaten path is boring and stagnant.  Stagnation = death. 

But I digress.  This post wasn't meant to be very long or too "deep."  Just wanted to actually spend the time to put... the normal expression is "pen to paper," but I guess in this instance it would be "fingers to keyboard?"  Either way, I just wanted to actually use my energy to make a written post again to refocus myself.  I truly believe documentation is key when it comes to assessing progress on any healthy hair journey, but especially a natural hair journey.  So, later today I will post some recent pictures taken with my new camera and talk about the changes I've made in my hair care for the 6 month growth challenge I'm currently participating in.  I mentioned it in my last video, but, like I said, there have been some recent changes in my life that have affected my hair regimen and I'd like to detail those.  So, for anyone who might be reading this, thank you for sticking with me and I'll TTYL.

Later, loves!! ^_^
