Graduation Day - Its here

22 years ago I became a teenage mother...I was told by some family and friends that my life was over.  That I was going to be a welfare recipient, living in low income housing, that I wasn't going to be anything.  For a period of time I believed it...I believe that those adults knew better and they were right....But God...God said I was to be the head and not the tail....God put people in my life, in my path to drip motivation on believe in me when I didn't believe in myself, people who told me I could do anything. 
As the years past I started to have a little belief in myself...I started on the journey of making changes, improving my lift, improving my daughters lives, but the challenges of living  as a single parent got in the way and it was important for me to put a roof over our heads and food on the table so I stop.  I stopped going to school...but I still had that feeling of unfinished business in the back of mind.  Two years ago by the encouragement of my oldest daughter Brittani who was in college at the time I enrolled in College to try to finish what I started.  Well two years has passed and now today I am about to graduate.  I finished my degree in December 2013, but I will march across the big stage in front of my family and friends and I/m very excited about that.  This started out as finishing up some unfinished business, but the more I thought about it...its accomplishing a goal I set for my life. I want to be that example for my daughters.
I had a photo shoot yesterday here are a few pictures...

Side twist

I tried something new tonight...I only wear 3 hair styles...the puff, twist out, and two strand braid out...sometimes I get tired and want a different look.  I decided to two strand twist to the side and wear my hair this way for a couple of actually looked pretty good for my first try and I wore it for 3 days...which is a miracle since I hate wearing twists out.  I put clips on the end to try to keep it stretched out.

Ohhhh I dont like shrinkage....

So I have been contemplating getting my hair straightened again...I'm not sure yet.  I just do not like shrinkage.  Look at my hair while it is wet, I am about to do a twist out on my hair, as it grows I'm hoping it will start to keep some of the length.
