So, for those that have known me personally for years I've always had dreadlocks. A few days ago my best friend ( @ljspro
) helped me cut part of my hair off. As for why it was time for to change, past time honestly. I've had the same hair for ten years and a lot of that hair has been with since I first got the dreads. It is said that we carry a lot of emotional weight in our hair, so it was time to let a lot go. A day after cutting my hair I stared at myself in the mirror for a long time just feeling the side my of my head. For the first time I really just looked at myself, and actually liked what I saw. I used to not like my head shape, my body, my smile, and the only time I looked at my body in any way was just to figure what I need to improve on at the gym. But I didn't feel that way this time, it was like I was looking at what the kid/teenage me wish I looked liked. Now I'm not saying I'm my perfect but just that I feel better more complete and more comfortable in my own skin than I ever have. A musician I really like @gravesmeredith
once said in an interview, and I'm paraphrasing but, that even if you have nothing, not a place to live, no job, no family, the one thing you still have at the end of the day is your own body, and that your own body in away is home. That's how feel right now and I just want to to share.
