A new day is dawning guys. I’ve been so lazy with my hair. I don’t even untwist itr for work anymore. There are a few things that have made me lazy. When I return home from work, I sit on top of my bed, engage in social media, and read. I know that I will have to soon break out of this habit, but until then I’ve been enjoying the lazy life.
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, I work out with my friends. After work out, I co-wash my hair and then return to bed.
There are tons of things running through my mind as I relax in the comforts of my bedroom. There are tons of things that have been happening to me that I haven’t shared with you because…well…I’ve admitted it…
And before I continue, I am lazy because I’m mentally drained from thinking all day long and making plans with my life. I can report good news though; the plans that have made me lazy have borne fruit:
My old manager at work introduced me to creating a Vision Board at the beginning of the year. My vision board contained many exciting images, such as: a photo of a graduate degree, a fancy new car, healthy food and people engaged in exercise, and traffic sign signaling for a career change.
As I decorated and redecorated the board, a lot of the photos that I posted started to physically grace my presence. I was able to get a new car that I love in February. I started working out 5 days a week. I started to apply to graduate schools. In March, while sitting at my desk at work, my phone buzzed. I grabbed the phone out of my bag, ran into the break area and felt deep in my heart this buzz was not anything ordinary. It was an email from the LSU School of Library and Information Science. I opened the attachment and there, in PDF format, was my admissions letter. I knew that the vision board was the truth. It allowed me to envision what I wanted in life, and consciously a subconsciously work toward obtaining my goals. I knew that this was only the beginning of working toward the goals that I’ve had jumbled in my thoughts but were never organized in a format that helped me to work to obtaining them.
Even as I write this post, I have feelings of laziness. Of course, I’m not lazy because I do not want to put the work into doing anything. I am lazy because my mind is racing with thoughts about the things that I want to accomplish with my life. As I become older, I notice that time does not wait for anyone. It may feel like it’s passing slowly when I’m engaged in something that I do not want to do, and may quickly pass when I’m having fun, but time always has its own schedule that I cannot manipulate. And since I cannot manipulate time, I need to do the best of what I can with it, while it is still beneficial to me.
If that made sense to you, then we have the same mindset…we need to take control of our lives before time does.
And you know, sitting here talking with you, I wrote over 500 words and did not speak anything of what I wanted this post to be about:
I’m thinking about cutting my hair into a tapered cut.
I’ve always loved short hair and this is the chance for me to do something different since I’ve been natural for 6 years now. The tapered look is something that I’ve always loved and now I am ready to chop this hair off and start all over again. A new hair style will awaken the spirit I had for styling my hair and hopefully get me out of this lazy funk. I’ve been wearing a short wig for the past few months and love how short hair looks on me. Because of that, Thursday, I have plans with John to cut my hair.
We will see what happens.
Until then, I just wanted to share with you guys my the Vision Board. It has organized my thoughts and helped me to work toward goals that I wanted to obtain for a few years now. You should try it.
Until Next Time,
