It’s been months since my last post and it feels so good to be back. But first things first…I’M SORRY TO HAVE BEEN GONE SO LONG!! I won’t swear to you that there was a huge important reason for my absence. I wasn’t off saving the world or anything of the sorts. Nope, I was just living life, letting my locs grow, and exercising the creative part of my brain.
As for my locs, its funny because from the moment I loc’ed everything about my journey was pure loc obsession. From looking at them in the mirror everyday for hours on end, re-twisting faithfully, trying to find the secrets to making them grow faster, to searching the internet for pictures of other people’s locs and wishing my locs would like the same.
Over time my out look on my locs has changed. My locs have slowly become a part of me because I’m not evaluating their progress daily, I’m not comparing them anyone else. And I think that’s because they are no longer a “thing” to obsess over…my locs are finally a true part of me. I am my locs and my locs are now me. Simply said, we are one and I like how it feels.
