Cheers to the New Year

2007! I cannot remember a year where I have been so excited about starting fresh and new. This is my year to take back some of the riches that life has to offer: love, money, spiritual growth, etc. Rewind back to 2005 - I walked off my job, ended my relationship and started my Sisterlock journey.

That set the stage for 2006 being the year to regroup and get grounded again. In February I got a new job, in June I got to fellowship with a wonderful group of Sisterlocked ladies and by September I lost 14 lbs which I have kept off to date.

I am sending a special THANK YOU to Lashaune who gave me that final bit of encouragement to do Weight Watchers as soon as I got back from New York. I have always believed that God sends everybody in and out of your life for a reason. By the end of the '06, I got some loc length, a new love interest, and
re-established my trading account.

What a way to roll into 2007. My list of goals keep growing and growing - but that's a good thing. When you all set your goals for the year, make sure they are specific, measurable, and in writing.

One of my favorite quotes. "Keep doing what you've always done and you'll keep getting what you've always got."

Make that change happen!

Mom's Locs

A few weeks ago mother and I got our hair retightened and I took these photos to show her progress. Mom started with permed ends in October of 2005. 90% of her permed ends are gone and she's definitely looking more locish now. This is quite an accomplishment for her since she has that "soft" textured hair. No where near the super coily stufff I have.

So 14 months later - Mom is so much happier with her locs and that is what's important.
