I’ve fully embraced my natural hair but there are days when it is hard to maintain. Mainly because I do not practice the nightly hair routines that would help make maintenance a breeze. Oh but when I do, the results are remarkable.
Summer 2018 while in Jamaica (in picture), I was surprised how well my hair dealt with the heat. I realized that on nights when I took the time to re-twist and cover my hair with a head scarf, the next day my hair looked and felt moisturized and was easier to manage than on days when I neglected to re-twist and cover.

There is something timeless about love. It looks and feels better as time passes. There is something magical about love. It sees past our mishaps. There is something endless about love. It endures things unimaginable. There is something spectacular about love. Beyond the glitz and glamor, it’s just two people deciding each day to try a little harder than they did the day before.
Sometimes we must travel on roads we have never been on, knowing it’s the path we must take and the way we must go without hesitation. One bend at a time, discovering the new that awaits us. Seeking to find what’s around the bend, while purposefully taking time to discover all within the open and hidden crevices on the way there.
It is not always easy to have faith but faith is always easy to have. What do I mean by this? I may see a situation being impossible to face and or to overcome and though I know what faith is sometimes I believe in the concept of faith more than faith itself. Sometimes it is hard to hold on to that faith, especially in a tough situation.
However, faith is always easy to have because it is always available, if we just believe. It makes itself constantly present. Faith seeks us out. It knocks at our doors and windows, saying “I am hear, let me in.”
The Bible tells us that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We can all understand hoping for something but to believe in it happening but not yet seeing it… well, sometime as much as we hope and believe, faith just in those “sometime” moments isn’t easy to have.
There is only one remedy for this sometime, not always easy to have faith moments. What is it, you may ask? It’s simple! Believe.
Faith is always easy to have if we just believe. Sounds cliche, sounds elementary, sounds irrational but if faith requires hope and unseen evidence then believing is the only way to have this always easy to have faith.
Live mindfully. Enjoy the happy moments. Smile in them. Lean back and rest in them. Think not of the next moment but only of the one you are currently in. When you are always on the go like I am, it’s hard at times to remember to live in each moment. Life and living it will escape us if we do not take time to mindfully live. I mean purposefully, deliberately without reservation mindfully live life.

There will always be people who will abuse your heart. Abuse your kindness and your ability to continuously forgive. They believe you are weak not realizing that you are one of the strongest person they know and that the flaw is within them.

Have you ever had so much going on in your mind where you just wanted to get it out in the best way possible? We live in a world, a world that we must share with others. Unless we have withdrawn ourselves from the entire world, we must come in contact with people.
