I went in to work today only having 1 haircut scheduled. I was kind of bummed about having such a slow day, but ended up getting 3 walk in's and did a co-workers hair too. The second walk in I had was the first person to really complement my dreads.

As of last night almost my entire head is dreaded, except for a small portion at the top that I was just too tired to mess with last night. I pulled the top portion op out of my face and went to work with my crazy wet dreads lol! They had completely dried by the time this guy came in and were super frizzy. So we started talking about hair and the subject of my dreads came up. I said "I'm in the process of dreading and I still have a portion at the top left to do, sorry it looks kind of crazy right now." He said "I was waiting for you to bring the fact that you have dreadlocks up". This confused me, I asked him why, and he said "Because they are the coolest things I've ever seen". He had never seen dreadlocks in person before mine. It's pretty cool to me to know I broke someone's dreadlock visual cherry HAHA! Anyway, He asked about washing and pretty much every other question that's ever been asked. Then I told him that my family wasn't to happy about it and his response is was, "why on earth would your family care about the way you wear your hair?". That's when it hit me! I am the only person that has to like my dreads. If no one else does, then so be it. I am truly okay with my mom not liking the fact that I decided to dread, and the fact that it's my husbands favorite thing in the world. I'm still me, only better :). I am happy with my choice, and that's all that matters.

It's amazing how having a conversation with a stranger can change our lives in a second.

Nice!  Yeah, I did mine over the course of a few days while hanging out with friends or watching films.  After the 3rd day I decided to let whatever was still loose do it's own thing because I needed to wash my head.  :P

I, as well as a lot of other people, am my own worst critic.  It's very hard to stay positive for oneself as opposed to being a positive supporter for others.  Haha!  Sometimes it takes some meditation and other times it takes a nice compliment to put your head in that positive air space.  :)

I agree with you! Thinking negatively only brings negatives things. I'm not naturally a happy person, so I have to remind myself daily about the positive things :)

Thanks! They are almost done! I've been majorly slacking on them. Just because I've been so tired from work lately. But I'm really aiming to finish them completely by tomorrow! :) I'll post pictures asap though

That's great Stephani.  You know, having a completely positive perspective will really create changes in other peoples attitudes too.  I know that when I see someone who is happy and confident with their choices it doesn't matter whether or not you agree with them or not.  However, negative attitudes and doubt can emphasize the "negatives"...  err.. I hope that makes sense.

Anyways, can't wait to see the finished product of your TnRing!  :)
