Be Content & Love Your Hair

This week I was thinking about how much I genuinely love my hair. There was nothing really special about it that brought me to this realization. The curl from my rollerset had fallen out. It was just regular all week. But in its regular state, I am very pleased with it. To me, it looks so full and healthy and dare I say...long! Lol of course I have goals for my hair and it's not at all there yet, but I think it's important to be content with what you have. A lesson my faith has taught me. The Message Bible sums Paul's words up perfectly:

"...I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything with the One who makes me who I am." Phillipians 4:11-13

So I'm content with it. I'm happy with it and I love it. And I think having this attitude about it helps in the way I take care of it. It makes me take pride in making sure my hair stays healthy and only gets closer to my goals. If I was always comparing myself to other women whose hair is so much better than mine and thinking about what my hair is not, I would not be a happy camper on this journey. I think this applies to many other, more important areas of life as well. It's great to use others as inspiration for change and find areas that need improvement, but you should still love yourself, love your life, and love your hair! I do. :)
