As I type this last blog post I am filled with bittersweet emotions. On one hand I am super grateful for Ouidad giving me this wonderful opportunity to spread my “craziness” with other curly hair lovers but I am sad because now I have to venture in this cold (literally it is cold), cold world with only my trusty laptop to guide me. Please do not worry as I continue on my journey to blogger domination but before I go I need to do one last thing… reveal my last secret. This secret is BIG, HUGE, EXTRAORDINAIRE, and guess who it has to deal with? Me, Bossy Girl, mother, sister, wife, entrepreneur, curly haired chick who has been entertaining you for the last three weeks…is about to take over the world.
Yes, you heard it right I am poised to continue my journey of blogging about my life and hair but I am inserting my ninja skills to take it up a notch. I have planned all kind of new and exciting things that will not only reveal how dope (do people still say that??) I really am but will help bring to light all the awesome things we as women do. I am going to continue to use awesome products like the KRLY Kids No More Knots Conditioner (smells great by the way), attend fabulous events, be super mom and even have a little time to get sexy and go out on a fabulous date night.
As I depart on this journey, I must share with you some “must have” mantras that get me through the days that I feel like crawling back in bed and going to sleep. Here goes…
- “You feel as good as you look.” It took me a lot of time and failed trys but this is so true. There are so many times that I would throw anything on to run out of the hours to do something for someone else. As I got a glance of myself, I would always feel bad but I felt like I had no other choice. I was wrong—dead wrong. Now I take time to make sure my hair is fabulous (courtesy of Ouidad’s Heat & Humidity Gel and Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner), my clothes are ironed and that I look presentable.
- “Sometimes you have to let ‘it’ go and do you.” With so many deadlines, interviews and just general stuff to do there are times you have to detach yourself and do what’s good for YOU. Sure I have saved tons of time by reducing my morning routine but sometimes I still fall behind. Guess what I do when that happens? I let “it” (whatever “it” is) go and just focus on making me happy.
- “Quality of content—in every aspect of my life.” This quote is pretty straight forward and gets to the point that the quality of your life is worth more than the quantity that is in it. I feel my life full of quality people, quality experiences and quality products.
Armed with these three mantras, a bag full of goodies from Ouidad, and the determination world domination is in my immediate view! As I end this list and get ready to take over the world, please don’t be a stranger! Follow me on twitter @bossygirl1980 or check out all of my craziness at www.bossygirl1980.com!
