Tri-Cities LOA Group

I have also been attending a Sunday afternoon meetup that discusses various topics including Law of Attraction. The members of the group have become my friends and we all seem to really get fed at these meetings (and not just by the desserts that get shared each week) .

Here's ma badge!

What I'm learning, reading & watching...

I've been doin a lot more reading lately. I'm seeking and learning about what's really important. I still say feeling good . So my question has been how to do it consistently. I have to say I am getting it. In addition to the books I'm reading I watched a really good message on Enjoying Everyday Live this morning with Joyce Meyer. It was called The Secret to Freedom. I really got a lot out of that one so thanks Joyce for being obedient to God's calling!

Check it out here

Feeling good takes practice!

You intended to discover a way to feel good, no matter what, because you have the facility; you have the power; you have the ability to focus. You have the ability to choose where you focus, therefore, you have the ability to offer vibration deliberately; therefore, you have the ability to choose the way you feel. But it takes some practice.

Flawless Hair

Ok, so i'm into hair. I have tried almost every kind of hair style, the gamut of products and even started my own hair store to feed my hair habit. I even shaved my head once or twice just to see if I would like it. I did, but I like having hair more. Having good hair on a daily basis feels good. And I don't mean "good hair" in the sense that compares coarse hair texture as "bad" hair, I mean choosing to look good and well groomed whether sporting a buzz cut, a fluffy fro, twisties, locs, a clip on pony, wig, weave or whatever - as long as it looks good and like u mean it. Being able to change my look on a daily basis feels good too! I am a firm believer that there is never a reason, given all the options, to have a bad hair day. For anyone. Period. I'll give u an example...

Once about 15 years ago, my sister treated me to a haircut in Beverly Hills but the salon she wanted to take me to had no walk-in appts available. We wound up going to another salon that she wasn't familiar with. Long story short, I ended up looking like the first year practice manikin from the local beauty school - yes, it was THAT bad. I felt so self conscious walking around like that! Later that day we went to the swap meet on Crenshaw. There was a barber shop inside with pictures of various fades & clipper cuts and one of a woman with hair so short it was almost not there - but the way it was edged up looked kinda fly. I told the guy I wanted that cut - having no hair on purpose was better than having a messed up haircut accidently. I must say I rocked it tho my friends were all shocked when I got back to school! That buzz cut was the end of my bad hair day!

Here are some pictures of some of the different hair styles I have had recenty.

I love the versatility of wigs, extensions & hairpieces. Recently, however I decided that i want to research and try to grow my hair long, all my own hair. There are so many products on the market today that promote healthy hair & scalp. The first one I am going to try is the "Brazilian Keratin Treatment" since I like wearing my hair straightened but relaxers seem to be really harsh on my hair. These treatments are supposed to strengthen the hair by infusing keratin protein - the basic component of hair. In addition, the treatment smooths, shines and straightens curl/wave patterns in the hair to help prevent frizz and poufyness. For people with curly hair that is hard to manage, this seems like a wonderful option. The treatment lasts for 3-4 months and depending on where you live, costs anywhere from $150 to 500. I'm sure there are upscale salons that charge even more.

Anyway, I'm going to give it a try. I'll blog about my results.
