I know I have been blogging mainly about my hair journey since I started my blog but when all is said and done, my hair is not going to get me through my most difficult times in life. But isolating myself and keeping my struggles to myself is not going to help me get through either. So here is to me (the introvert) being more open...
Right now, I am juggling with so much just like the next person. I am an engineering graduate student who constantly feel like giving up, a mother of a very busy toddler who is about to head into those terrible twos, a fiancee' to a guy who is just as busy with school and work, an inspiring bride to be who has NO idea when exactly she will have the time to fully plan out her wedding, a frustrated job seeker who just want to get her foot into the medical device/pharmaceutical industry to start her career, a blogger/vlogger who wants to continue to inspire her readers through her journey, and most importantly, a Christian of 5 years who is still struggling with the concept of faith and feeling worthy of God's love.
Sometimes, we can look at someone from the outside and truly believe that THAT person has it all together. Or we can desire to be like someone or have something that someone has without really knowing what all that person had to go through to get to a certain place in life or receive an awesome blessing. I don't ever want someone to look at me that way because I CERTAINLY don't have it all together even with longer hair...lol. And even when I do have things together, it is only because of God's grace and mercy. Praise HIM!
Several ladies have mentioned how they can see Christ in me and see my positive attitude. I think, "Wow, really?!", mainly because I am going through some hard times right now. I was truly humbled by those statements especially since they were based off of not knowing me personally and based on what they can see from my video and read from my blog. As you go through my blog, I don't want you to see me as another natural hair guru/expert (far from it!) or even a big headed one at that (because there are those out there but I don't knock their hustle). I would like for you to see me as an individual who is growing not only in her hair journey, but most importantly growing as a beautiful and unique individual in her spiritual and life journey. I want to be as humble as I can as I share what I have learned through my experiences whether it be about hair or in life because in the end, all good things come from above and He should ALWAYS get the glory especially since I do not even deserve to be here today to share this with you.
Don't think I am going to start preaching on my blog...hehe. But I will share some spiritual points that I want to keep note of that may help me grow as a Christian and hopefully be of some help to someone else. What profit is for me to hog my spiritual discoveries to myself and not share it with you all? I sure do not want God to act the same way toward me! In addition, I want to be able to be open and learn from experiences that some of you have gone through that may help me get through some of my rough patches. Even biblical verses that you believe that can help encourage me would be awesome!
I hope I do not turn any readers off by introducing a more personal and spiritual aspect of my life on my blog. I mean, the title of my blog is This BEadifully YOUnique Woman (not Hair). But if I do, I apologize in advance and hope that you continue to read my posts pertaining to my hair journey because I will continue to do so on a regular basis.
Ok, enough babbling on. This past Sunday, my preacher talked about declaring WAR against the devil. The catch phrase was
This is on repeat in my head as I work on this graduate work. Keep me in prayer and remember to BE.YOU.Always! :)
Welcome to my blog! This space has been used over the past several years to document mainly my natural hair journey and several different aspects of my life such as spiritual matters, my jewelry design, and parenting.
