Value and Treasure it!

Love yourself for who you are, no matter what.  I often struggle with my own images of beauty. Working in a corporate world some times makes me question myself and the choices I make. My kind of natural beauty (loc's) is not valued, acknowledged or treasured in the corporate society. 

Sometimes I feel relieved once I have left the office, so that I can finally re-connect with myself and feel good about who I am. This is an on going battle for me. I think its harder when you are the only one in large business environment that looks a certain way. That's why having a forum such as this helps me daily to realized that beauty is what you make it. 

So please love yourself and be proud of the choices you make. I know that is something that I definitely want for myself.  Love Locs! Love Dreads! Love Naps! Love Curls!


  1. Wonderful blog! Yes we must love ourselves because that's where it begins and ends..with us.

  2. Thank you for starting a blog!I love it and is so true about the corporate world! I feel the same way.Sometimes it's like my hair is holding me back, although i keep it nice and neat and styled all the time, but I could never compromise my hair for my job! I love the stuff you find for your blog as well, your doing a great job!

  3. Thank you Sprinkles and Msfullroller. It feels good to be able to talk about this kind of thing. It goes on every day and its nice to be able to acknowledge it. Thank you for reading...

  4. It's true the corporate world (& society in general) does not always support/respect our right to be NATURAL! Thanks for reminding us we are not alone in the struggle and to "keep our eyes on the prize". Ourselves!

  5. I appreciate reading post such as this. Your words express what I am feeling sometimes. Oh, by the way..LOVE YOUR BLOG AND YOUR WEBSITE!!!

  6. Thank you Mz.V and Robin. I relieved to hear that I am not the only one feeling this way. I can make you feel lonely. As if your not following the rule of what the corporate image is. So I am very glad that I am one of many that is following her heart no matter what, when it comes to this issue.
