I recently had an experience where I was judged based on someone else’s preference. The situation went like this, “Do you think this person is pretty?” I didn’t agree with that persons preference but did not shame them for believing or feeling the way they did about the other persons beauty. Moments later, I was being attacked for being, “untrustworthy,” and a ton of other things that simply aren’t who I am or what I stand for in my life. This situation, even though it occurred months ago, prompted me to share this piece with you all today. Preference: A greater liking for one alternative over another or others. Judgement: The ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions; a misfortune or calamity view as a divine punishment.
In no way, shape or form is it okay to put others down based on your own preferences. We are all entitled to like what we like, and dislike what we wish to dislike. There is a difference between preference and judgement. What occurred during …
DIY Homemade Hair Mask
Yesterday I made my 3rd homemade hair mask, but this time I used a different recipe in result of one of the main ingredients not being available.
As many of you know, I have worn my hair natural for the past three years, which takes a lot of patience and care. I used to co-wash between 3-5x's a week to maintain the fresh look of my curls, however, I've changed my regimen to co-washing 1-2x's a week at max., and shampoo 1-2x's a month. The texture of my hair is what would be known as a combination of 3b - 4a. Yes, I have 3 different kinds of curl patterns going on, and believe it or not, this is not uncommon.
I wanted to share this hair mask for women who seek to add length, shine, and strength to their natural hair. Also very beneficial for women who straighten their hair as well.
Here are the ingredients I used: 1 Whole Banana2 Medium Eggs1 TBSP Coconut Oil1/3 Cup Coconut Milk1/2 TBSP Olive Oil
Other Things You'll Need:
(If you don't …
1. Not known or seen or meant to be known or seen by others.
1. Something that is kept or meant to be kept unknown or seen by others.
In my opinion, there are no secrets.
Once something is made known or is seen, it is no longer a secret. It's amazing to me how humans take words and consistently use them out of context.
We have a secret, just we three,
The robin, and I, and the sweet cherry-tree;
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just us three.
But of course the robin knows it best,
Because she built the—I shan't tell the rest;
And laid the four little—something in it—
I'm afraid I shall tell it every minute.
But if the tree and the robin don't peep,
I'll try my best the secret to keep;
Though I know when the little birds fly about
Then the whole secret will be out.
