What's Your Level of Commitment?

Greetings BAye Hive!

Yesterday I celebrated the one year anniversary of my hair being loc'd. To be honest, I was actually going to begin the loc'ing process in a different way. I 'd previously decided to wait until my hair was much longer before I started the process. I had a vision of how I wanted my hair to look and absolutely no idea that would be out of my control.

My journey began on Earthday 2019, with a set of comb coils for a new look. I kind of dug the look as it got older and just went with it. At about 6 weeks in, I figured I may as well see what a re-twisting of my new growth would look like. I went ahead and made that call to my loctician for a maintenance appointment.

After seeing my hair growth progress, I decided I was really all in and ready see where this journey would lead me. I not only wanted to prove to myself I could commit, I also wanted to see what changes I would go through physically, mentally, and emotionally. I mean it is a journey right?

As with any journey, a year is certainly long enough to note some considerable observations. Physically, my hair has grown and I'm confident the size of my head has as well. I seriously feel like my head is extra large and growing daily. I'm pretty sure it's my hair thickening so of course I am    
A-okay with that. LOL

Mentally, I feel like I'm seeing things and people much clearer now. It's almost as if my locs are my antennas or sensors if you will. I'm definitely more in tune with the energy around me or projected toward me. This could weigh heavy on some but I welcome the elevation.

Emotionally, I've always been emotional. That's just a fact. I believe now I am extremely aware of my deeper emotions. The ones I had ignored and dared not explore for fear of staying there too long. This too, is part of the journey to self, my P.O.I.S.E.D. self. I is to be in-tune with self.

I believe when you commit to something, you should expect and be open to changes in all areas of your life. Another example would be a change to one's fitness lifestyle. Isn't that something? Change is a result of commitment to change. Frankly, as I reflect on this milestone of my journey, embracing this process has been in my best interest. I look forward to seeing and sharing where this committed relationship will lift me. 

I'd love to hear some of my reader's stories of commitment and change. Please share them below.

Until next time, remain...P.O.I.S.E.D.
