I’m someone who has always had difficulty putting myself out there. For 64 days, since November 1st, I’ve done exactly that. Shown up + showcased.
My Husband had emergency spinal surgery at the end of October, mid covid. I lost my brain for a couple days. I was messy. I over thought and worst case scenarioed while he was in the hospital, and for a few days when he was back. Non functional really.
Through my own hair challenges, I am developing lines of hair accessories fit for regular life. The easy to embellish, uniquely interesting, and comfortable to use type of designs which I'm sure will help some of your own adult hair situations too. I don’t like spending mornings fussing over the things I can’t change anymore. I want to spend my time creating things that will enhance the way we feel about ourselves instead.
I have a talent, and to this day, I still have trouble letting people know. I should be shouting from the rooftops, and sharing this creative journey more. I’ve come to realize that. The other thing I should be sharing is the secret that we are all creative beings. We all have the ability to make wild transformations. Trust your instincts and make your own masterpiece, because that’s exactly how it’s made.
When I was young, I wanted what everyone else had. Toys, clothing, talents - you name it. I was pretty much terrified to be like who I really was, and like something for really actually liking something. I instead sought out what everyone else thought was cool - you guessed it - to fit in.
