    Today, my 5-year-old daughter called her afro pretty. This may not seem big, but I am currently transitioning because she would cry because she wanted "pretty straight hair" like my relaxed hair–not her "ugly big hair". Since I now want hair like hers, she brags and calls hair "curly and fierce" lol

    I had a BOMB.COM conversation regarding my next Fierce.Fly.Fabulous event (going down July 2012). VERY excited about 2012 and everything that's in store! I also lived to see another weekend, which is above all the best gift ever. *got my drank & my two-step*

    My first job review as a teacher went perfect (so not only do I have a job I love for the first time in my life but I am actually good at it)!

    Woke up early every day.

    Left for work on time every day. (A miracle in itself.)

    Missed traffic 4 out of 5 days.

    Got Starbizz this morning. (Salted Caramel Frapp)

    I passed my licensure test.

    And this week I surpassed my goal of 70 hours of volunteer work for this month.

    This week went from a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad (complete with a menstrual related embarrassment I won't bother to detail) to a Wonderful, Fantastical, All Good, Very Great week!

    I'm blessed to have a wonderful husband! This week he told me how much he appreciates me, and how I add value to our family. I have struggled over the years about being a stay at home mommy with a college degree (which I have yet to use). I truly am blessed to stay home, and I thank God for it. However, sometimes I wish I can see His plans for my future. In the meantime, I will rejoice and be gratful for my amazing husband and children!

    I was given the opportunity to offer hands on support for a new curly sister this week! It was great because now as I reflect on my own natural hair journey.

    I'm currently transitioning. I am at 8.5 months post and for 8.5 months I have been the ridiculed and/or interrogated about my decision to go natural by my family. Even though it hurt not having their support, I stood my ground each time. This week, I received a phone call that lit up my heart. After over 30 years of relaxing, my auntie has decided to go natural. When my little 14 year old sister heard, she proclaimed her journey too. I showed them your site & several of my favorite youtubers. I got some hair buddies/family in this thang now! Ooo yeahhh!

    It felt so amazing to receive more readers on my blog as I am an inspiring writer and there was a time that I wasn't sure if I could do it but you don't know anything until you try.

    As for blessings I feel blessed to wake up everyday, have clothing on my back and food in my stomach. Being blessed with great friends and family. This is amazing to me and something I cherish daily as we can sometimes forget how blessed we are.

I quit my job and moved out of state with my husband and kids and i pay out of state tuition(he pays in state since he had a KY license since he was in the military) so things have been so tight for us since neither one of us work. I havent complained but I have been making it work. God is always on time.

    (I didn't see my post so re-posting) Nothing Major really happened, but I do have a funny story to share. This week my 5 year old brother watched a program with kids going off to college. He listened then started to ask me and my mom a bunch of questions about college. After that he left and went to his room. When my mom checked on him 5 minutes later, she found him crying. She thought he might have harmed himself. So we were asking him all sorts of questions, "did you fall? are you hurting?" (that type of stuff). Then he cries even louder and we couldn't calm him down. So I said, "Jaiden use your words, we don't know what's wrong". To which he cries, "I DON'T WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE." Me and my mom just stared at him and then at each other and started laughing. "why don't you want to go to college?" I asked. "I don't want to leave my family, don't you want me?" he asks. "Yes Jaiden we want you a lot; but you'll be older and bigger, you'll be 18, you will be able to take care of yourself, you will be happy to leave home by that age," I replied. This I found was the wrong thing to say because he started crying even more than before. He only calmed down when my mom told him he didn't have to stay at college, he could go to college and she would pick him up from college they way she picks him up from school now and she would pack his lunch. This made him very happy. My only regret was that I didn't get it on video.

    This week my sister told me she is finally ready to big chop after transitioning for a year with braids. She asked me to do the honor and she is coming over tonight!! I'm so excited for her.

    Another great thing is that I'm REALLY enjoying life, meeting people, and have realized how blessed I am each and every day! πŸ™‚ Whether outside circumstances are good or bad, I always feel GOOD inside and that is a beautiful thing.

  • Zawadi B says:

    My house got broken into 2 days ago and my laptop, wallet and purse were stolen. I came home after sleeping over at my aunty's house to find my valuables gone. I'm a writer in the beginning stages of a freelance career so losing my laptop was devastating. I called the police. After they left, I didn't cry or anything, I went inside looked in the mirror and said: I am unbreakable, I am the head and not the tail, this is a setup, not a setback, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..then I cleaned my house, took a shower and kept it moving. This incident showed how much I've grown up over the past year. At 24 years old, I'm a women on a mission – to make my dream of being an author and full time writer a reality. Nobody and nothing can stop me – you can steal my laptop and my money, but you cannot steal my talent or my joy. Thank God for that!!!!

    This week I experienced one of the many many joys of being a first time mom. I got home from working a night shift (dirt tired), walked through the door just wanting to hit the bed. But instead, wa;l over to my 12 week olds crib and notice her admiring her feet with a really serious face (lol). Well when she finally notices me, she smiled and let out a big laugh as if someone had given her a million bucks. Her smiles still feel like the first time im seeing them everytime she does it. Im so totally in luv with my little riley! :))

    This week, my oldest daughter, who is about to turn 10 in a few days, turned to me and said, "thank you mommy for cooking and cleaning and helping me with my homework, even though you stay up late doing your homework." I am currently back at school to get my Masters in Accountancy. What a wonderful and precious acknowledgement to come from the mouth of a child. I couldn't help but cry (and I have tears in my eyes now as I write this) Talk about motivation to keep doing what I'm doing!!!!!

On that note God is truly Good!!!!

Put "Never Would Have Made It" on repeat and whereas I had debated skipping class I made it to every class and participated. It's all about remembering even if you're having a rough patch, you've made it this far haven't you? I'm not here for no reason, God does have a purpose for my life. I don't necessarily know what but He does. So. I just keep on going and try to be happy in the process πŸ™‚

Within 7 days I read 16 articles, 2 books and wrote over 30 pages of work… and I did this with little to no sleep because I went back to my alma mater's Homecoming and partied last weekend.

On this past Monday clients dog eats his passport, hubby has to talk his ish ( he's know for it), and convince his celebrity, but-a-hermit/loner client to even go in public to the passport office where he gets them to give him his passport that same day on Wednesday. Today, Thursday we pick up preschooler cone whine for lunch, leaving out fir meeting, notice passport is misdoing. We all just saw it 30 mins ago. Miss meeting put out neighborhood, condo association, and preschool alerts thinking we're trip pin' he must of dropped. Retrace all his errands for the day. Goes to tell client bad news (as flight is for 8 a.m. Tomorrow). I'm so frustrated for him I start cleaning and organizing at 9:30p.m…..3 yr old has put passport in her "purse" and stiffed it in her arts & crafts drawer and it magically falls out onto newly waxed floor as poor hubby and client are across town going through!!!!!! Amazing, gotta watch those little people!!! So quick, so clever!!!whew, going to watch The Golden Girls!!! Lol

    This week made my 7th week at my new job. Since I have been here, my supervisor has been mean and unconcerned about anyone but herself. One of the graduate students in the lab is trying to graduate this December so that she can move with her husband come January. Well, needless to say, my boss came in one day and told her that she wanted to push her dissertation date from Oct.28 to the middle of Nov. The graduate student is almost 8 mths preggers!!! So, I suggested she write a letter to the dean to state her problem–which of course I helped her write since she is from China and English is not her first language. I prayed over her letter and by the grace of GOD, she will be doing her dissertation tomorrow!! To put icing on the cake, she said she is considering joining the Christian race. To GOD be the glory! Just thanking him for the opportunity to bless someone else!

    This week was my second week on my new job. I'm doing great but the supervisor and her assistant have been extremely mean to me from the first day i started. If I ask questions I get a a sarcastic loud response that is very embarassing ( its a small office ) Anyway, I have been praying to God asking him how I should handle things without losing my cool..Well, this week I got called into the VP's office along with the HR rep. Someone must have reported them because the VP said she wanted to have my seat moved and have me work with another manager giving me more responsibility. She mentioned that she does not feel I have been supported and wants to make sure the company does not fail me going forward. I couldn't believe my ears…. God is AWESOME! He took care of everything in a matter of days. I am thankful!!

  • Curlz of Luv says:

    I fell in love with hair (tear drop). November 3rd I will be natural for 2 years. The entire time I have had moments of joy. But overall I wasn't lovin my hair. I did love the confidence that grew in me as I realized that I am not hair. Most importantly it was about me being a positive role model for my 2 girls (6 & 9). Anyway I am a product junkie and however no matter how good my hair looked in the morning by the end of the day it was dry and dull. However a week or so ago I saw a video on using Giovanni leave in and Royal crown hair grease. I figured why not I have done everything else. I grew up using hair grease like most of us. So I got the Giovanni but I couldn't find the royal crown so I bought some blue magic. Drum roll please… my hair looks and feels great. I am receiving so many compliments. A natural friend even questioned if I straightened my hair. On top of it all Nikki said she is trying grease again. So yeah I have had a good week and for the first time in awhile I have not contemplated getting some creamy crack..

    A few months back I had a major setback and lost a ton of hair due to self-relaxing after getting highlights a month prior. I come from a family of long, thick-haired women so I was so upset about the setback. I searched and searched for a way to regrow my hair and found this site and a ton of other forums dedicated to healthy hair. Well, yesterday, I visited my hairdresser and they noticed the increased thickness and u can barely tell that I lost my hair! In fact, its almost APL and it hasn't been that long since childhood! The setback was a blessing in disguise because I learned so much about using great, safe alternatives to some of the chemicals that we typically use dye, pems, etc! So now I learned to better take care and appreciate the gifts that God gave me! I'm truly blessed.

She was so excited to show me how her baby is moving in her stomach and talk about the decorations and baby stuff, it was just really cool to see her, I mean she is 8 months

    The most wonderful thing? Today is my BIRTHDAY!!! I'm so thankful for being granted another year – to make mistakes, to get things right, to be with my family, to see my nephew grow up, to have a chance for a family of my own. Speaking of wonderful…my daddy still sends his baby girl birthday cards filled with love and a little something 'extra'.

  • MsJisola says:

    I woke up every morning blessed because gave me another chance to get it all right. I also am thankful to have a vision of my future, meaning I dream big and excited for what is to come.

  • Monnie says:

    As most of America, I am an unemployed and I am currently a broke graduate student looking for employment. I received an email about a job I interviewed for twice saying that I did not get my dream job ;( But TWO WEEKS LATER(This week) I received a call saying t I was not supposed to receive that email! Even though the position did not select a final candidate yet, I am still hopefully about employment and Hope is way better than nothing. πŸ˜‰

    I called to check in with my 2 year son, who's at the babysitter's, as I do everyday during my lunch break. And as usual he says, "Mommy I love you" before he hung up the phone….
    That was the most major part of my day:)

    I graduated in 2010 from Howard with a degree in journalism and since then I have been trying to find a job in my field. I have been able to get to the interview stage but never past that. This week however I learned that I made a strong enough impression that I was contacted by a newspaper to interview with them again! Praying that I get this job!

    Congrats on the daycare… I know how EXPENSIVE dare tuition can be =(

  • WineGrrl says:

    I got a good night's sleep (almost) every day this week.

  • Faidat B. says:

    The major thing that happened to me this week is that I found out that I was selected for a program that would help pay part of my son's monthly daycare cost. My daughter is already in daycare, and my son starts next Tuesday. The additional funds that I don't have to spend will go towards Christmas presents and paying my bills =)

  • Tia says:

    This week I was blessed to see my sister smile again. She is currently living with my husband and I. A lot of family and relationship issues constantly get her depressed on and off. She hit a very big wall and was in a big slump. To see her smile again this week, get up and go out, all the little things, makes me so happy. There is always hope.

  • Mz.T says:

    Mine is really minor. On Tuesday the guy at whole foods gave me a tub of cottage cheese for free! Made my day! Plus I'm alive!!!

  • Ebonee says:

    Well this week I did my Big chop from transitioning for 13 months and some days. And when I cut my hair i was like yes and cant wait to work with what I got.

  • Irendi says:

    This week I discovered that I am leaps and bounds closer to achieving my dreams than I was at this time last year. I discovered portions of my personality that I never knew existed.

  • Michelle @Radiant Brown Beauty says:

    Aww this is so nice.

    I'm giving thanks for a number of things:

    I made it through my root canal no pain.
    My son had less seizures this week. This is actually the ONE thing I'm most grateful for. I can take root canal pain but seeing him seizing is unbearable.

  • Rhonda McKnight says:

    My five year old son turned six. What a blessing he is.

  • MJ says:

    One amazing thing that happend to me this week is I was able to get back into my blogging routine rather quickly after focusing on the bast two weeks working on my book. I really missed my beauty and fashion blog and have a renewed sense of creativity too. πŸ™‚

    Let's see- I became a licensed Zumba instructor, my husband got a gig at Sephora and so there is that discount and I managed to wake up and be amongst the living. Doesn't get much better!

    My kids are out of school on term break…I you-tube'd Momma Mia..and my girls (5 and 6) were running around dancing and singing:

    "Mamma mia, here I go again
    My my, how can I resist you?
    Mamma mia, does it show again?
    My my, just how much I've missed you

    It was fab!

    One major thing (to me) is that I got real inspiration and a real push to start writing more often!
