Week 1: IDENTIFY WHY IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO GO NATURAL
Going natural is a commitment, it is a journey that will have you in tears some nights but will pay out in the end. Ask yourself: “Why?”
Why is it worth it to put in all this hard work and effort to be natural? When we think more closely about why we want to do something, it is more enlightening and gives us a better start so we always remember why we are going through this change to begin with.
I see many women, and men, that make these commitments to go natural and eventually fall off within a few weeks. It is my goal to make sure you are identifying the why so you can stay on target with fulfilling your natural hair goals.
Make the commitment to yourself to get to your goals; it will be a tough start and trust me, it will suck, but in the end it is all worth it! Not only do you need to make the commitment to yourself, but you need to put your commitment out to the world. Once you have people that are aware of your commitment, you will be more inclined to take the necessary steps to act on it. I want you to get to your hair goals, so let’s get it together!
Having natural hair goals are also extremely important for the journey. You have to have some idea of where you are going so you can make a plan to get there. I think this is safe to say with anything you do, whether it be working out, getting a promotion, acing a class, and etc.
This week, I challenge you to give reason why you want to take this journey and what your overall goals are.
There are many reasons that we “go” natural and every reason is completely valid because it’s your own. So let’s take Week 1 easy and start with this.
Post your reasons for going natural and your long term goals! I would love to hear them and help you get started!
