Why am I Here? What is my Purpose?

Ever took the time to ask yourself; “what is my purpose?” Why are you on this earth, especially at this time and during this season? Is there something that you were born/created to do?

A good friend of mine once asked me, “How do you know your purpose?” At the time I think she may have been experiencing her quarter-life crisis. You can imagine how perplexing such a question can be. That is such a difficult question to answer, especially for a mortal being like myself. I have no insight into the future… I AM NOT GOD.

Easy like Sunday Morning: Deep Conditioner For Natural Hair Care

Tags

, , , , , , ,

For years I have inconsistently used this mixture of natural ingredients to aid in the management and upkeep of my hair. I recently decided to be more consistent with this and I love the results. I am currently doing this once a month, I would like to do it more often but my busy schedule does not allow me to do so.

Each of these ingredients is natural and affordable, not only that they each have a unique advantage when added to your regular hair care routine. I am a huge fan of olive oil and coconut oil. These oils also have excellent benefits when used on the skin as well. I decided not to go into detail with that in this post but can do so in a separate post if you all would like to find out more information.

If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat! – NIV (Proverbs 20:13)

It’s 3:30 am and I am wide-awake. It’s not because I have had the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep or because I am well rested, but Instead, it is a feeling deep down in my gut, that voice in the back of my mind, the constant reminder that I am not where I would like to be. It is the look in my younger sister’s eyes, it is the burning desire to repay my parents, to take care of my family. Lastly, it is the fear that if someone like me doesn’t step up Liberia’s health care system and every other developing country like it, will never improve.

As I look around me I see that my current state of “being” makes me uneasy. I cannot just “be” I have to get up and accomplish daily goals to get me to where I want and need to be. This is my daily wake up call, my alarm.

Thrifting

According to the Oxford Dictionary thrift is “the quality of using money and other resources carefully and not wastefully:…”

Thrifting was an embarrassment to me, I felt ashamed when my mother would take my siblings and me to the Goodwill or the Salvation Army to shop for clothing and other household needs. Today, thrifting is not only exciting it is the financially responsible thing to do. Took me some time to come to the realization but when I did there was no stopping me. I now take pride in my thrifty ways. My mother would jokingly say for birthdays and holidays she will get me a Goodwill gift card, I loved the idea.
