I Reached My Goal...Now What?

Tuesday, January 11, 2011



So I've officially reached my goal of Mid Back Length. Whoohoo!! I feel like I just graduated. LOL

My 3rd year anniversary passed Fall 2010, but I never had the chance to upload a comparison photo from start to finish. Just to re-cap, I've been on my hair journey since Fall 2007 and I reached Mid Back Length Summer 2010. Finally! Though I've experienced it all i.e. porosity issues, dryness, moisture overload, protein overload, chopped off 4'inches etc. it's been an amazing journey thus far. I've learned A TON of new things about hair, my hair and I'm truly proud of myself for being determined and dedicated. If you are unfamiliar with the drastic cut I got back in Fall 2008, you can read about it here.

Although I've reached my goal in length, that doesn't mean my hair journey is over, oh no no no. At this point in my journey, I will be exploring more products, making new goals and focusing on helping others rather than myself. I'll still be doing updates here and there but not as frequent as before since I'll just be maintaining MBL (cutting it to MBL each relaxer, no waist length for me..lol).

So in a nutshell, 2011 is all about maintaining this length, thickness and experimenting with other products, items and tools. Just keeping it very simple...I guess :)

What is your main focus for 2011?

Do you have new goals?

Or are you just keeping it simple with no expectations?

  1. CONGRATS ON YOUR 3 YR ANNIVERSARY HAIR GOAL!!! MY MAIN FOCUS FOR 2011 IS TO REACH APL BY THE END OF THIS YEAR AND TO HAVE MORE THICKNESS. I DIDNT NOTICE TILL THE START OF MY HAIR JOURNEY THAT IT TAKES A LOT OF PATIENCE AND TIME SO MY NEW GOAL IS TO ACHIEVE MORE PATIENCE SO I CAN FOCUS MORE.

  13. Yay Sunshine! Congratulations!! You've inspired me along the way not to cut my hair off and start all over. It does take lots of energy, patience, etc. For this year I am focusing on getting healthier hair, going back to finish my college degree and just being a happier person overall. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge.

  16. Congrats to you!!! What you've started is amazing. Did you ever think when starting YOUR journey, that you'd have such a following? How blessed you must feel to not only have met you're goal, but created a platform for other women to reach their goal as well. God bless you Sista. And thank you for obeying God!
