Today is my 6-Month Anniversary

My sisterlocks are officially 6 months today. I love them just as much as I did the day my consultant finished them on January 9th. I gave them a good wash on Saturday and realized that I have gotten the washing down to a science and I no longer dread the experience as much. I am not obsessing about flakiness or itchy scalp.

Now I am trying to wonder when the heck I am gonna start budding, but I know, I know patience. It is getting fuller and longer with just basic help from me. Still freestyling. Shoot me - I am lazy with my hair and until I can pull it up in a ponytail I ain't roding or using SS for those tight curls. I recently read Mel's blog and I cannot help but laugh at her facial expression when she says she didn't like the front of her hair after using the SS. Priceless. However, she was able to do a cute style and all was not lost.

My best friend called me on Saturday. She lives in Denver and lawdy she is a talker. One thing I can say is she is still a perceptive sista. She asked me 3 times how I was doing and I responded the same way each time, 'I am fine'. After talking for 2 hours, she knew my definition of fine wasn't her definition of fine. Let me just say right here I am not a religious person in the sense I got to church every Sunday, Bible Study on Wednesday or choir rehearsal kinda thing. I believe in God and I have a spiritual connection with him and you will find me praying and meditating with Him all the time. I consider that Spiritual. Lately, my constinence has not been strong and I know he realized it and he made sure my best friend called me. She got saved a couple of years ago and although she is the same person she is a different person and she also possesses that Spiritual quality about her. She counseled me in her way and I listened closely, because God was speaking to me. I needed to hear what she said because the devil has been riding me hard lately. Her talk lifted some of my pressure and gave me peace, which is all I have been wanting for a long while.

I said all that to say God talks to you, but you have to be quiet enough to hear him. I heard him this weekend. Now I have to be obedient and know my time of peace is coming upon me soon.

Sorry to sound all melancholy on this anniversary post, but I had to put out there to not let fear overwhelm your faith.

Now on to some more positive stuff. I have lost 15.5 pounds still trying to eat healthy. Got to do more exercising, but had to wait on my pulled rib muscle to heal before I got back on my ellipitical machine. Now I just walk the stairs at work.

This post has been sitting in draft since July 9th. My life just got busy during that week and could not get it posted.
