I’m coming to you bright and early with my hair wrapped as a symbol of me doing something that is completely out of my norm. For years there were things I didn’t do because someone would see me:
1) I was the kid that would play outside and then run behind the house if I heard kids coming down the street. I’d peek behind a bush and watch them walk by to make sure they were gone before coming back to the front of the house.
2) My hair – when wrapping your hair first came on the scene my aunt did my hair at the salon. And back then every salon had a store either next door or across the street. I’d hate when she’d ask me to go to the store and maybe my hair was in rollers or still wrapped up. I didn’t want anyone to see me like that. This is part of the reason I’m here like this now. To shed in the natural things that have been holding me back in the spirit.
3) Running – I flunked gym in junior high because I refused to run around the track. At that age everything was an embarrassment and my boobs were coming in. My boobs never got trained they just arrived in full force. And then the gym teacher had the nerve to ask us to run around the track. Not me. I walked and very slowly in silent protest of her ridiculous request. Plus, I was not going to shower in the locker room. No way. Funny now because I teach group fitness three times a week. LOL! I’ve since learned how to keep the girls tied down.
These are just a few things I didn’t do for nothing else than the fact people would see me. These unresolved issues spilled over into adulthood and my business.
I’ve been afraid to market because you might see me. I know it sounds crazy. However it’s true. In my quiet time, the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance where this comes from and it goes back to my childhood. No more.
I want you to see me. I want to connect with you. I want to build relationships with people. I love people. No more allowing my own thoughts to get in the way.
In the examples mentioned and those not mentioned the people on the other end were not concerned about what I was doing or looking like in the moments I was stressing myself out.
I know I’m not alone. Maybe you’ve got something deep inside that you’ve allowed to be a stumbling block for you. Face it head on. It may not require your hair be wrapped up. What it does require is a willingness to shed a few pounds that have been keeping you locked at one level. This alone will get us higher.
Together we move forward! I see you, I hope you see me 😊👋👀
