I'm so good at making empty promises and resolutions to myself and God. Well this time I am for real. How can I say this? Well, it finally hit me that change isn't obligated to occur in one day and that is where I was setting myself up for failure with each new promise that I made. Call me slow, but it's just hitting me know.
So ok, I'm for real this time. Everyday of my life i will make an honest effort to work towards changing my bad habits and achieving my goals, all while I become closer and closer to God.
My motto for 2008 was that it's mine and I am taking it by force. Boy did I feel disappointed a few days after the New Year's when I felt like that certainly isn't the case. I had already broken all of my resolutions 2 days after the new year. I came to the realization (through the insight of another intellectual young lady) that the new year is beyond overrated. Every day that I am alive is a blessing and new chance for me to work towards my dreams and aspirations so why do I cheat myself in only endeavoring to accomplish them every January 1? I've come to the conclusion that I will approach every new day as a new year and through that I can feel my days becoming more fulfilling.
So this time, I am for real...

I don't really have much to say about my hair regimen because I don't have one. I pretty much do whatever hairstyle comes to mind and I am not big on hair care. Right now, I've made uo my mind that I want to go natural so I am in the process of just trying to get alot of new growth before I do my big chop. I wash my hair at least every 2 wks and use organic mayonnaise to condition.
Like I said before, I'm not really big on hair care because I am just trying to grow my relaxer out. Stay tuned tho'....
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once aday.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember that if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in awoman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.
If you share this with another woman, something good will happen - you will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that you care about her.
