First of all I would like to start this blog post by wishing all my muslim brothers and sisters an amazing Eid, Eid Mubarak! Hope you all are enjoying the day to the fullest and are gratefull for even the little things in life.

Speaking of Eid, I spontaneously changed up my hairdo today! This is not my hair, but a weave which I haven´t had in over a year. In my previous post I have mentioned my hair as my biggest insecurity since being bullied for 6 years from the age of 7 – 13. So whenever I change up my hair I always end up with such confidence it`s pretty surreal! My natural hair is short, frizzy curly hair which I still don`t like & that fact always upsets me because I would like to accpect my hair as it is, but I just can`t. One day though, I would like to walk outside my home embracing my natural hair, but until then I dont have an issue with getting my hair done however I like so that my confidene show through. The most important thing is to do what makes you happy regardless of what others might think. I love sticking out from the crowd, being a little different with all of my crazy hair colors. One moment I might have blonde rasta braids, but then I`ll change it to a bright blue weave 2 months later.

What I am trying to say is that it is a wonderful thing to know that by doing something as little as changing your hair can change your whole mindset, and make you so much more confortable in your own skin. It might not be my own hair, but it feels like it and it makes me happy about myself.

Do you relate?
