First, that WAX IS BAD! Second, that not every dready is a rasta and not every rasta is a dready! (Lol) Next, that although it is difficult to be patient and trust in something you have never done before that the benefits of doing so are well worth it. I have discovered that the time I used to waste on my hair every day can be spent in more worth~ while ways...sleeping, laughing, going to see the ocean or sitting in silence. I have realized that the people who don't understand or agree with my dreading aren't really missed in my life and that the people who have supported me (here and out in the world) are a source of comfort and inspiration. I have learned that I can be more than I've hoped and I can explore what it means to be me more fully and completely without regret. It is never to late to become who you were always meant to be! And lastly, that enlightenment...like beautiful dreadlocks takes time and an unwavering belief in the journey. Thank you brothers and sisters! What have you learned from having dreads?
