Happy 1yr Lociversary to ME!!!


So here it is., a year of locks! I have to say that I have truly enjoyed the journey thus far. I remember so many people advising me and telling me that I was going to love the process, but I was hesitant, albeit determined. I went into this journey with fears, but I was more excited than anything else. Looking back now on the past year of ups and downs, I have to say that I've learned so much about myself and my strength.

I've always considered myself a rebel to a certain degree, so this process has enriched that side of myself. Going against the grain is so much damn fun (devious smile)!!! I look forward to what this new year will bring into my life and how my locs will grow and build even more character in me. I have grown from this process and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I have finally begun to see my own beauty. That is something you can't put a price on. I'm even smiling more these days, despite my inner fears and insecurities.

This journey has enriched my life thru some of the people that it's brought to me. I started organizing 'Nappy/Naptural' gatherings and I've met women that bring me so much joy. I have forged friendships that I can't imagine my life without at this point. Dare I say that I probably would have never met these women had I not started locking.

I truly look forward to the future with a glimmer in my eyes and happiness in my heart. The Locking process has been a true journey and my journey continues. I look forward to year two and more growth in all aspects of my life.
