Natural hair -trim story

This was as at December, when I trimed. Guess it’s longer than this now 🙂

Infact, I was so tried of going natural at some point, because first, I had no idea what to do with my hair. I don’t do weaves, so I was confused on how to cope with studies, blog, hair, children’s church stuffs, DIY that works and all that. So before end of December, I asked my biglos sis if she thinks cutting off all my hair would aleign with my face structure. She said nahh. LAWD have mercy.

I was so done. So I ignored her and called another friend. That friend too was against me cutting off everything. Who loves me?? She suggested I trim, just as my biglos sis had suggested earlier. I trimmed my hair myself a week before all these drama tho, so I was like  “no amount of trimming will make me change my mind”. But then I went over to her place and she trimmed my hair well as you can see in the Picture. I was like “whaaat? I like it”.

I decided to give myself a 6 weeks break by doing braids and hey sis, it was so worth it. I found out new DIY which I am still testing out on my hair and would share with you once it comes out positive. I have like cool styles and ideas now, that I would love to try out. You might probably feel that way sometimes, but hey; you are are not alone. I thank God for friends and sisters. Sometimes it’s good to hear what others have to say. You must’nt take every opinion, but you can filter and expand.

Stay tuned for more, I made an Ankara Dress and hope to share that with you soon. Stay blessed. More Pictures below and my length as at Last month (June)

Save some hope, don’t cast all away

Thank God I can finally post here. Exams are over and I am kind of free for now. This picture is just a picture to some, but there’s a whole lot of story behind it.

So one day I was sitting at home and it was dark. I had this pink scented candle on. It was the only light in the room and during that season, I was so down that I found it really difficult to study for my exams. I somehow felt left out or something was missing. You know in a wilderness journey, you’re entitled to prolong it or obey and get out fast. I was trying to figure out when my own journey was going to end, even though I had just started. Then I heard the most beautiful encouragement ever. The Holy Spirit indeed is up to date when it comes to God’s children. He said “Spare some hope, let hope live. The room is dark, but the light is shinning. It might not shine to lighten up the whole room, but it’s shinning to show to you that there is still a way out, even tho the situation looks different, but let hope live”. I was so encouraged, I just smiled and said “Lord, I know you got me!” That’s one out of the numerous encounter I have had with this supernatural lover of mine. So today I am saying to you, let hope live. Don’t cast all away.

Have a blessed day and a loading weekend ❤ ❤
