I just want to say I didn't realize when I started this journey how deep and spiritual it was going to be. I am almost overwhelmed by the feelings I am having and I am only 1 week in. Ive been researching about dreads, learning the history and watching peoples youtube vids about their journeys and its really deep, man. I'm also wondering how I'm going to handle my families (mom, dad, sister, grandma, etc.) reaction because I am almost certain they wont understand, and are gonna give me grief. I'm a 36 year old woman but my mom and grandmas opinions still affect me alot. I know they're going to hate my hair. Everyone always tells me I have such beautiful hair. Am I strong enough to handle their opinions? Do I really want this? As of right now, I feel like I am on the right path, I'm a natural person and I'm getting back in touch with my natural self. I feel Ive discovered something ancient. Did Adam and Eve have dreads? Whoa! Deep thought! Anyways, I just wanted to write a little something to mark the beginning of my journey so I can come back and read it in the future.
