Good Bye, Hello

1 day left before I say good bye to some friends and coworkers. As of December 23rd we will come to feel the effects of our wounded economy and face a lay-off. I've worked for my employer for the last two years. It won't be easy, but I'm optimistic. I welcome the change actually. It comes in a timely manner with other things that have changed in my life...

I've found myself newly single-again. No worries. There comes at time in an adult life that when things are not working, move on.  No regrets. No drama. I'm reminded of a Tyler Perry play when Madea saids "When you're in your teens and twenties you make stupid mistakes cause you are trying to find yourself. But come 30, a light comes on and you get some sense... If a light don't come on, Check ya bulb. Check ya bulb. (Lol).

I'm moving soon. Not to my house yet, but definitely a better place than where I live now. I definitely feel that this move is a good decision for me full of opportunity and closer to my circle of family and friends.

And I'll be working on putting myself out more to start building a clientele for my hair care business. I'll start with natural hair and braiding as this doesn't require a license in the state of North Carolina. To tell you the truth, I like working with natural hair better any way. I felt so good talking a grandmother out of relaxing her 7 and 8 year old granddaughters' hair. I asked what she would hope to accomplish in relaxing their hair. She said to make it easier for me or any other stylist to work on their hair. Wrong answer for me. In this scenerio I was the expert and I acted as such. I told her there was absolutely nothing wrong with their hair and I would be glad to service them both. I told her that relaxing their hair would cause more harm than good if not properly tended to and at 7 and 8 it wouldn't be good. She thanked me for my honesty and I preceded to braid her grandbaby's beautifully big coily  hair. (Warm feelings)

So I say Hello, to what  lies ahead for me. To seek out new and wonderful opportunities, to boldly go where I've never gone before (kinda). I've had to start over before, but now I'm ready to embrace what  I know that  I am ~a strong woman~
Here I am again at a new start, embarking upon a new me...
What a ride this will be

I really enjoyed this as I am embarking on a hello and good bye period perpetually but seemingly more so this year than ever! I think your new year can begin at any moment.

I would encourage to go do something you enjoy. It sounds like you can make diffference in educating people about how healthy and beautiful natural hair can be. Go for it!! I've been laid off 6 months and I am also looking at being self employed. Positive attitude is what you need at this time and always.
Good Luck!

You have a very positive attitude about your situations. which I think is great because being negative will get you no where.

Glad you were able to talk some sense into that grandma, lol. I'm sure all of them will appreciate it when they are more educated on the matter.

Take Care
