So yes! I caved and gave in to the urge and I'm glad I did, granted this is only day two so maybe regret might set in later. Why did I do it?!? Because the thoughts of cutting off my locs wouldn't go away and the more I investigated within myself, the more I realized I needed an emotional release. I had another dream Monday night and I woke up Tuesday morning going OK, it's time. I don't know how to explain it any better than it felt like my spirit was moving me to do this and that I needed an energetic cleanse. I went to Sandra (the same stylist who cut my locs into a style) and she did a wonderful job. Once she started cutting I didn't have an Holy Sh#@t!!! what have I done moment, it felt right. I felt lighter, free and that I was letting go, shedding a lot of emotional baggage. I loved my locs, they gave me so much. They gave me strength, patience and faith to trust and believe in myself and a thoughtful fearlessness. They were a witness to me facing a lot of my issues and ridding myself of a lot of toxic people and situations. For some I know it may just be hair but for me my locs were spiritual and a great guideline for me, they were wonderful and I thank them for all the lessons learned. So where do we go from here? I don't know. I'm not focused on length or styling, I'm just enjoying what I have right now hmmmm and that right there might be the lesson. I hope you continue to join me.
