So I just chopped off all my hair..

Yup, cut it myself…
I don’t know how I feel about it.
I feel like crying, but the tears aren’t coming.

I never dreamed of cutting my hair… at least not anytime soon, but I took out my braids and I had a lot of knots in my hair (that’s what happens when u have your braids on for too long).. it was worse after I washed it. It became impossible to detangle. Let’s just say my frustration got the scissors to work.
The end.

love-faithfully:

If I would marry, I would marry a man who loves Jesus more than he loves me, but loves me in the way that Jesus does.  A man who finds value in people and wants to serve them. A man who is kind, selfless, compassionate, patient and keeps me calm. A man who I can see leading me closer to Christ each day. Someone who loves to appreciate the little things & someone who waited & prayed to the Lord just to have me. I can never find someone like this unless I wait for His right timing. I know He will give me the right person at the right time, because He knows I deserve the best.

Romantic love, I think, requires a degree of physical attraction, but devotion is needed to maintain it as an actual relationship. Physical attraction is a feeling you don’t really have control over, but devotion is something that has to be chosen. — (via love-faithfully)

spiritualinspiration:

So often when people make mistakes, they get down on themselves and think, “If only…” “I should have…” “What if…?” It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed the best plan for your life. That’s when people get discouraged and stop pursuing their God-given dreams. But understand today, just because you’ve made a mistake or failed in some way doesn’t cancel God’s plan. God never disqualifies you. He never says, “Go sit on the sidelines. You’ve blown it too many times. You’ve got too many weaknesses.” No, God always gives you another chance!
Some of the great people in the Bible made very poor choices. The apostle Paul started off as a murderer, yet his destiny was bigger than his mistakes. He ended up becoming a great leader and writing over half of the New Testament.
What am I saying? Our mistakes, our failures, our poor choices don’t have to keep us from our God-given destiny. With God, it’s not about the way you start in life, it’s about the way you finish. Receive His grace today and embrace the bright future He has in store for you!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. — Marianne Williamson  (via mindofataurus)
