Hair Wars and Self-Care

Spoiler Alert: This is a “Hair Appreciation” post.

Yall. I used to be the queen of bone straight hair which over time ended up damaging it. Literally took me 10 years to become comforatble with my natural curl pattern. Would have never worn my hair like this even two or three years ago. My hair and I have come so far. 😄

Sincerely,

Tyra

Freedom

I always wondered

how birds feel

gliding through the open 

sky, nestling on the 

highest branch,

above the chaos 

of the world,

above the clouds 

and their rain.

So close to the sun,

what need would they 

have to lower themselves 

to the ground?
Have you even noticed 

the dirty red robins in

the nest outside 

your window?

I wonder now if 

they can hear our bodies

singing to each other;

Or our silent prayers 

for one another 

and each meal you’ve cooked.
I like to pretend

I know what they 

sense gliding through 

a cloudless sky or 

perched high above the 

world when I am near you.

Own It | Confidence 

Find your inadequacies.

Gather them up in a wicker basket

with as much care as you would

great grandma’s green tomatoes

and love on them.

Sing to them.

Water them.

Feed them plenty of sunlight

and fresh air.

Allow them their freedom

to become greater with time.

 

Or tie ribbons around them.

Or throw glitter at them until they

sparkle with your adoration.

Refine them until they transform

from often hidden, untouchable flaws

into something you can

beautifully and proudly say

you own.

 

Truly let them ripen.

And one day you will hold

them up to the sun and

marvel at their growth.
