I’ve missed you all. It’s been over a week since I posted, and I’m trying to make sure that doesn’t happen again!

Can we just pause to talk about my life for the past two weeks? Hectic. I’ve taken on some additional projects at work (meaning I’ve been assigned some additional projects at work), so there’s that. And I’ve been putting in some extra work on my BLOG HAPPY Workshop and getting the first DREAM JOB BRUNCH off the ground. With all that’s going on, Q suggested we start having “Hustle Sunday” at local coffee shops so that we can get our thoughts together for the week ahead and make sure that we’re balancing our 9-to-5 and our side projects. So yesterday we were at Amaretto Espresso Bar in Harlem (very good cappuccino) and I’ve got my to-do list ready for this week!

Oh, and I finally did cut my hair. Yes, I am rocking a semi-tapered curly fro, and I’m in love with it. I got it done this past weekend thanks to some amazing people at Bumble and bumble. (such a good experience…more on that tomorrow!)

I’ve wanted to cut my hair for years, but I always had such fear and anxiety at the thought of going short. I’m not even sure why. It wasn’t until I had a conversation with Siobhan Sudberry of Be Free Project (she’s our amazing Dream Job feature this week!) that I finally decided to let go of my irrational fears and just do what it was I wanted to do. We let fear hold us back from so many things, don’t we? Even something as simple as a haircut! I wasn’t even nervous when I sat in the chair at the salon. I was excited! I was finally doing this thing that I’d been wanting to do for years! When I left the salon, I felt liberated. I felt totally and unapologetically myself. I didn’t care what anyone thought about my hair that day because I loved it, and that was all that mattered. It was an awesome feeling.

So that’s what’s been going on with me. How have you guys been? How’s things?

    I love the idea of going over things on Sunday. My BF and I normally do brunch after church, so it will be easy to add our task list to the process. I also love the cut and have been wanting to cut into a shape so I think with my dye touch up, I will get a nice cut. It looks great by the way. 🙂
