So many people have already shared their opinion, but I wanted to add mine as fuel for thought. I haven't been satisfied with the performance of my Shea Moisture products in a while. I don't know if I purchased something with a new formula or if I was just over the hype. I've heard some people react to this situation by boycotting Shea Moisture. This is moot for me since I had no future plans to make a purchase anyway.
I'm glad they quickly made an apology which effectively communicates that they understand the angst, but will it be enough?
Watching this video has made me realize how much I have changed. Back in the day, I'd be working hard to get all the girls' hair done tonight in preparation for Easter service. These days I don't really altar our routine, but try to work with where we are in the process. I may use a few extra accessories tomorrow but a little bit of fuzz really doesn't bother me anymore.
Negative self talk is so destructive. I think there is a graveyard of wasted potential simply because we talk ourselves out of a blessed life. Suffering is unavoidable but we are born to live out our purpose and I know for me, negative self talk is such a stumbling block.
I really have to remind myself that I am here as a mentor. One who shares what I have received. I can't be distracted by the process or overwhelmed by my busy life. As long as I upload the download, we're good, right? Time out for making the wrong assessments and kudos for staying the course!
I love watching Mocha Dad in action! These spontaneous chats happen any time. I love the fact that we don't always have to be doing school to be learning new things. Mocha Dad's reminder that learning the basics well is so much more important than getting too deep too early was timely for me. I've been applying these principles and have noticed a big difference in my daughters already.
I am grateful to Mocha Dad for making time for this conversation. It was so helpful to me that I wanted to share the entire thing. There are three videos in all to be released Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7 pm.
I haven't been slacking with on the hair videos. I just haven't been doing hair! I never thought I'd find myself too busy for the leisurely Princess Days of old. Weekends are often booked or we're dealing with the unexpected like this week's stomach bug. Thankfully it has stopped making it way through the family.
I was feeling all kinds of mommy guilt, until I was slid my fingers through my daughter's healthy strands and remembered that our natural hair can be resilient. What a relief that the girls' hair is thriving!
I am excited to share our new Busy Mom Hair Regimen for Girls. I'm getting my daughters more involved with the process, and fine tuning the steps to save time.
