Be the best you, you can be!

Another week, another blog post, another time of me not knowing what I want to write about.

So, I guess I’ll just start writing and see what happens.

I was walking to the bathroom today on campus and as I walked past two students, I heard them say “That girl is so cute. Look at her hair.”

It’s always funny to me when someone compliments my hair because I was always so embarrassed by it when I was growing up.

You never want to stand out in a crowd when you are younger, you want to conform to those around you. So, since all the girls had beautiful straight hair, I used to have my mom take an iron, yes, an actual iron, and straighten my hair. And while it was definitely straight, it certainly did not look like the other girls hair.

As I grew up, I found myself straightening my hair, and then curling it after. Crazy right?

Once I got to college, I was in A Christmas Carol and they wanted me to have big hair, so I decided to let it go natural. And ever since that show, I have let my hair naturally do what it wants to do.

I am no longer embarrassed about my hair, in fact, I love that it makes me unique, and different.

So, I guess my post is about being okay with being you. It’s a life long journey, I still have moments where I feel uncomfortable, or I am met with a new experience, and I react in a way I wasn’t expecting.

As I tell my students all the time. None of us were given a clipboard in the womb and we got to tick off what we want to look like.

We are what we are.

Be confident in the fact that there will literally never be another you.

So, be the best you you can be.

Love always your Cycle

I always wanted to be taller which I had no control over but I also wanted to be thinner and that I could.

Have the courage to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
