NATURAL HAIR JOURNEY: 2 YEARS AND 9 MONTHS

It’s been a very long while since I wrote about my natural hair journey, this is partly because I have not really tried any new things. I’ve just been doing what I have been doing but I have been doing them very well. As you can see from the pictures I will share below, itaf grow. Thank you, thank you, hold your applause.

So, I shared this picture on my whatsapp status a few days ago and the responses I got were mainly questions about what I have been doing to my hair to make it so long and so full. I am not expert at all but I felt that I should answer all these questions, once and for all. Good idea ba? I’m a genius, I know.

First of all, I’d like to let you know somethings about keeping a natural hair. It’s a mind thing. Deciding to go natural, is like deciding to start working out or deciding to study more, it takes commitment and self will. If you decided to go natural simply because it looked good on someone else or because, it’s in the trend and you are not fully committed to the journey and lifestyle of keeping your hair natural, you will fall under the category of people who keep saying:

“my hair is hard” “natural hair is difficult to maintain” “natural hair is expensive” “you dey try o!” “doesn’t it pain you when you comb?”

SIGH

DAY 13: WHAT I AM EXCITED ABOUT

Consistency is hard, but very achievable

The struggle has been real you guys but I’m not going to stop. We are going to get to Day 30. In other news, who watched the match yesterday? Raise your hand if you cried; don’t be ashamed. It was a good fight though, the super eagles played with soul and spirit and for a few days and Nigerians had hope again. Musa for president!

Okay, today I’m supposed to write about what I’m excited about. Some of these challenge topics can sha tire pezin o. Hmmm. I am excited about the future and what it has waiting for me. Sometimes, I wish I would get a tiny peek at what the future is going to be like because the suspense is killing me. I am sure I am not the only one who is excited about this. Everyone wants to know where and what they will end up with. Others are excited about knowing who they will end up with while some are excited about everything about the future; like me.

I wrote a piece about uncertainty and how frustrating it is, to just “take things as they come” and “hope for the best”. It’s so annoying especially when you’re going through a rough patch and you literally can’t see anything that would suggest illumination at the end of the tunnel of troubles you are in. Sigh.

One thing i’m sure of is that things cannot always stay bad because situations change and this life is a roller coaster ride. There will be high times and down times, slow times and fast times and times you’d want to puke and times you’d want to snack. What keeps me going, is the suspense, the anxiety and the excitement because I know that things always get better.

Its 8:01 and I have to leave for work now. I know, I know, you’ll miss me *flips hair*

Today’s post is short and I apologise. Next time, I will be talking about: FAVORITE MOVIES THAT I CAN NEVER GET TIRED OF WATCHING

See you all on Day 14.

​DAY 12: FIVE BLESSINGS IN MY LIFE

A blessing is literally something that helps you or brings you happiness. If we want to then be religious or spiritual about it, it’s anything good that God has given you through grace. Today, I am supposed to write about five of these things.
MY FAMILY

My family is a blessing to me and even to themselves. When I was a kid, I used to see other rich families and wish that maybe one day one of their parents would come and identify me as their long lost daughter who got missing or exchanged during birth. (Don’t judge, we all did it). As I grew up, I began to realise that there was always more to the smiley faces, perfect family portraits and matching outfits. I realised that every family had their unique struggles, I realised that some families weren’t even families in the true sense. I realised what I had. I had and felt love in its crudest and purest form: unreserved, unconditional and clean. My family is a blessing to me and the lessons they have thought me are actually what is getting me through life as it is. 

MY TALENTS

A lot of times when people meet me and discover the things I can do, they accuse me of emulating the foolish servant in the bible who buried his own talents in the ground and returned it to his master the same way. I am multi-talented and it is very confusing. In fact, it is a blessing and a curse at the same time because, I usually end up confused when I try to think about what to do with what I have. To be honest, I am surprised at how I strongly decided to become an Architect because there are a lot of things I could have chosen to be at that point in my life, even now. Of all my talents and gifts which include creativity, the one I most appreciate and value is the ability to learn. I am a very teachable human being. Seems very insignificant right? One of the greatest gifts I have is my “teachability”. I am a learner. I learn by looking, listening and even feeling. 

MY BODY

During Christmas a few years back, a family friend came to visit and our parents asked us all to come and greet them in the living room. I wasn’t quite ready to see them, so all my siblings had gone before I went to greet them. When I entered the living room to greet her she asked and I quote: “I have not seen you before, are you a day student or a boarding student?”. Ladies and gentlemen I am sure that at that point, I am sure I was either in my final year in the university or my entry level in my postgraduate programme. It’s safe to say that I am the second smallest person in my family and the smallest is my 8 year-old brother. I am the first child out of five (four girls and one boy) and I am 7 years older than the last girl but you cannot tell. Not to toot my own horn but join me as I sing Jay Z’s  Forever Young. Forrrreevverrr youuuunnggggg 

MY FRIENDS

I have been blessed with very few good friends who are unique in their different ways but have stood by me and made me happy in their own ways as well. I am a natural helper and hijacker of people’s problems but these set of people have helped the helper in many ways than none. The funny thing is that I am not even a good friend to these people and I don’t deserve their friendships but they are there for me when I need them. They listen to my many banters and encourage me how they can. God bless them for me.

MYSELF

Yup, you read right.  There’s not much to say, I am blessed to have me. I am awesome, I am beautiful, I will be great and when I become great, I will be there to witness it all.

That’s all for Day 12 guys.

See you on Day 13

Cheers!

BACK IN TRANSMISSION

It’s the weekend everyone and it’s raining. 😢 Bummer. 

If you have been following the 30-day challenge, you would realise that I am about 11 days behind schedule. I’m not about to give an excuse but alot has happened in the past few days and I hope…matter of fact I know that things will definitely get better. This has been one of the most vulnerable and weakest periods of my life where I watched myself do and think things because of imperfection. 

Well, I don’t intend to give up on this though. Expect DAY 12: FIVE BLESSING IN MY LIFE SOON. 

Cheers to the weekend

DAY 11: SOMETHING I ALWAYS THINK “WHAT IF…” ABOUT

We are surrounded by an unending parade of uncertainties and unconfirmed phenomena and if we decide to sit down and talk about the things we are not sure of, we may end up even doubting our own existence. Speaking of existence, what if the concept of the Matrix is true. 😀 😁 Hold on nau, hear me out first 😋

You all remember the movie: The Matrix right? If you have not seen that movie, you may be excused. Just bookmark this page, download the movie and watch it and then come back and ask for forgiveness 😔. If you’re stubborn are still reading this even when I have clearly instructed that you should go and watch the movie before continuing then you are an outlaw! 😒 I like you already 😚

DAY 8: SOMETHING I STRUGGLE WITH

Good day guys! Today I’m supposed to tell about something I struggle with. The truth is, we are all broken and have our individual struggles because we are imperfect. So, if you have come here to be judgemental, I suggest you stop reading and go now because I don’t have space for hypocrites on my blog.

So, the thing I struggle with the most, is Continue reading

DAY 7: 10 SONGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

Good evening people. Thank you all for sticking around till day 7 and I’m really grateful for the support you have been giving me through your likes, comments and shares.

Today’s post is going to be a brief one because I am supposed to write about 10 songs I am loving right now. These 10 songs are not popular, new and might not seem interesting to you but they definitely do to me. The reason why I like these songs and quite frankly, music in general is that each song is like a fresh pair of shades with which I view my environment and situation differently.
