Confirmation or Coincidence- I wonder?
My day has begun and I feel so full of new beginnings. I have not blogged in a few days. Simply, because I am just now digesting what I have learned the past few days. Lately, I feel like my life is coming together nicely. As, I stated in my first blog I cut my hair. Sunday, I was invited to attend a meeting for women with natural hair. Truly, I did not think I would find many women there- I was wrong. There were plenty!!! I thought that I would feel out of place and overwhelmed. Surprisingly, I felt connected to these beautiful women. They were embracing their naturalness and individuality in such a confident way. As, I write this blog I am thinking back to Sunday because I awoke feeling different about myself. Its funny but I woke up feeling extremely sexy and beautiful!!! I had decided that morning that I will always awake this way. It was the first day I truly embraced my short hair and liked everything I saw. I felt like I no longer need such attachments as my shoes and clothes to define me. That first glance of beauty will forever be etched in my memory. I think that morning I saw how other people have probably seen me- far longer than I have. Do not misunderstand, I did not think I was ugly. But I did not believe I was beautiful either. Sunday, I looked at me for the first time ever. It is hard to explain what I saw because sometimes beauty is simply unexplainable. It was more than what I saw. It was a feeling, taste and a touch that I felt upon that first glance. It was wonderful!!! Was this a confirmation or a coincidence that I met such a strong and beautiful group of women. Right, when I discovered the beauty within me. Hmm, I wonder?
