R.E.D.






You know that saying of "I am not my hair", well some days, you have to remind yourself that and today is one of those days for me. As you can see, I chopped off most of my hair because 1.) I need to start growing it again  2.) I have an unexplainable fascination with looking like a little boy. Let me start off with saying that this has been a rather long year for me. I've had to make life changing decisions and I've had to go through life without having all the answers but trusting God regardless. I've been in a place that has been far from good and dare I say, I even struggled with depression. However, I've lifted my feet off the ground (with God's help of course) and I'm soaring like an eagle. I'm in a good place with so many beautiful people in my life and I desperately wanted to celebrate my new beginning with growing some <INSERT WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT HERE> and cutting my hair which I've been wanting to do for a while. However when I got it cut yesterday, I didn't want to look at the mirror. I wanted my hair back but just as I've learnt this year, there are so many things we want but do not need and I do not need weak and damaged ends on my hair.

I really wanted to look girly because my hair is not exactly girly and I appreciate having a feminine look. I initially thought of a pencil dress but not exactly in the mood to skip breakfast so my tummy can be extra flat. I don't play with my food and NO, I wasn't born with a flat tummy. YES, I tuck it in sometimes. BITE ME! Finally, I opted for an outfit that left room for a big breakfast but did not take away from my feminity and I went old school with this. By the way I'm 20 so when I say old school, roll with me. Ever since, colour blocking trend came back, it's almost an offence to wear clothes with just one colour. People would say you're too matchy matchy. Well, today, I am MATCHY MATCHY, but who cares? I'M HAPPY 


PS; sorry for the picture quality, it was windy and drizzling at the same time and I didn't want to mess up my hair or my lens!!!

  10. One day you are going to inspire another young lady because you have been "there". Things always seem so horrid but in hindsight you are able to breath and see the significance of the struggle. Either way learn from all your experiences. Be strong and know that we serve a great God. Stick close to him and he will direct your path. You are a gorgeous girl with a bright mind and future. Seize it little one and know that the devil is a LIAR!!!!
