Do you think you know?
I never thought I would do hair for a living. I never planned to become a Loctician, or to name my business Dr. Lockstar. I did not ask for this, dream of this, work towards this, nor did I have any goal related to this, yet here I am, personally employed by a community of loving clients.
I enjoy making a personal connection with each of them, learning about their struggles and sharing in their victories.
I always do my best to be a friend first, and a professional second, because our relationship matters more to me than the money.
When I go to work, it is like hanging out with my friends, yet they pay me to talk, listen, and laugh, while I play with their hair.
I do not know how I do it, but I seem to accomplish whatever I intend to do, so long as my heart and mind are aligned on the task.
These words, these skills, this logo, this post, all of it happens without a plan, or any goal in mind. I’m just here, present to the opportunities at hand, making the most out of whatever life brings me.
I trust in the unknown, because everything I have ever enjoyed has come from beyond my attempts to plan it, so my life is planning me, instead me planning my life.
I avoid assuming to know anything, because there is always more to discover within this mystery:
If I were to assume to know you by judging, to know truth by guessing, or to know Reality by thinking, my conceptions would lead me astray.
This is true for all if us, but only you can discover this truth for yourself.
We depend on the unknown for all knowledge and information, why not let it plan your life as well?
Your life can be a beautiful mystery of Self-discovery, constantly organizing every experience to in your favor, *if only you would let it.*
Give up thinking you know...(Via Thoughts)
Respect the unknown...(Your Self)
Sometimes things don’t go as I planned....
I relaxed after work today and watched a show that triggered LOTS of emotions! Then I watched the slideshow from my dad’s viewing, MORE emotions. ...
Let’s just say, I was a mess 😢 Crying over happy memories, crying because I miss him, crying at the loss of future memories, crying because I can’t hug him. ...
I guess I needed that. A good cry. Now I sit here in the shirt I bought him for the Christmas he didn’t make it too and drink a glass of wine in his memory 🍷😇 Forever in my heart ❤️
@madenlondon Hunny 😔😢 I'm so so very heartbroken, today I learned the worst news possible and it literally made me sick to my stomach... You were so funny and so vibrant and about your business. I pray you watch over Island and guide her thru this journey called life, I pray she will continue to feel the love you not only showed her but gave her and 1 day understand you did the very best you could for her as a mom but also forgive the reason why you're no longer with us, Watch over your friends and fam as I know this is a very hard thing to accept Especially under the tragic circumstances. You didn't deserve this.. #rip baby girl SMH, #domesticviolence has to stop somewhere and soon.
Earlier, K woke up from a long nap. She was noticeably more serene and eager to please. So out of curiosity, I asked her about her dream. I expected the usual humorous answer (I.e. Mickey Mouse, a talent show, dancing or Princesses). She surprised me with the seriousness of her response.
K: I saw Grandpa Bill in Heaven.
K: He said ‘I love you, Katherine.’ Me: That’s so sweet. 😢
K: He asked me to give him a hug.
K never met my Dad. He passed away long before she was born. She only knows him from this second picture, and the little anecdotes I’ve shared. I like to believe that somehow - by the grace of God - my Dad did pay K a little visit in her dream. I know he would have loved her so very much.
I saw Dan tear up at K’s response. Dan said he believes Dad visited K in her dream too.
Whatever the case may be, it was a sweet, sweet moment.
