Well hello there! It’s been a while…
I’ve been suffering from anxiety lately, becoming overly anxious about my creativity and forever second-guessing myself. I am pretty much my own worst enemy and that isn’t easy to come to terms with, it becomes a vicious circle of self-doubt, leaving one to sink into a cloud full of water that cannot rain.
I decided to stop telling myself what I can’t do, or thinking of a hundred reasons why something won’t work. Life is for living, exploring, learning and developing. We need to take risks in order to progress; if we don’t try we’ll never know the outcome and end up with a long list of ‘what ifs’.
I went natural a few years ago, since gaining enough length to pull my hair up, my go to style of choice has been a simple up-do. There are so many styles I want to try but I have been too scared, not because I don’t think it will suit me, but because I keep limiting myself with an ‘I’m too old for that’ or a ‘that’s too wild’. It’s really strange because I never used to be like this, I was once a person who liked to push the boundaries, in an essence, I was always the wild card.
Here I am, free from a self-suppressing shackle I put on myself. I’m not to old for anything I want to do. I can do what I want, wear what I want and be what I want. I wanted bunchies so, shit, I did me some bunchies and I bloody love them!
I parted my hair in to two, used hair bands to bunch each section, then added some X-Pressions (that I twisted in) to give my bunches a fuller and more interesting look.
I will definitely be exploring more natural hairstyles and getting creative with different looks. Let me know what you think.
Have a fabulous week sugars! x
