My Two-Year Anniversary is Today!

Here's one of the latest pictures taken of me 11/27/05. I'm not quite finished retightening my hair, but it will do as far as letting folks see my growth. Today is my two-year anniversary of having Sisterlocks. It is so hard to believe I have come this far in my journey. I have so many wonderful people to thank in the Lockitup and Brothers_locked yahoo groups along with the beautiful blogs and on-line photo journals of those willing to share freely their locking journey and experiences. Being locked at the young age of 35 (smile) is such a liberating experience, especially since I had so many years of haircare drama in my life. Being natural and especially being locked for me, has taken a great amount of fortitude, in which I've found out how much I can bare throughout this entire journey. Some have given up and thrown in the towel, others have given up, but then picked themselves back up again for another round, and yet others have persevered all the way through.

Although this journey hasn't been a bed a roses, I must say, I am extremely happy with my decision to get locked. The light I have to share only beams brighter when I enter a room with my big blossomy smile and my two-toned locked hair. I'm thankful to "represent". Well, until I post more pictures and stories, keep it locked and keep it real!

I love this post. I am glad you are sharing (have shared) yourself with those of us to follow in your footprints. You are therapy for my soul. I was feeling kind of discouraged for the last two days, because I will have to wait until May 10, 2007. But after reading a few posts on your site, I have renewed resiliency to be patience and wait, and not do something desperate and immature. Like get braids or worse... I must remind myself that I creating a self-LOVE experience. There is no time for drama!

Thank you Sis.RJQueen10,

Awe! The 2 yr mark! That was so big for me. I probably did more blogging pre-3 yr mark, cause after a while, there's not much else to say. If you've been to Sandy and Pat's sites, you know what I mean. So, I just like to post pics and comparison shots or make "helpful" posts for new bloggers. Maybe I'll do a good one on my thin crown spot. That post will be real long with lots of pictures! Blessings to you!
