Are you a cheerleader for other people, do you cheer them onto victory and feel happy when they achieve success, even if it is something you may want in your own life? Or does something good happening to someone else feel like something bad happening to you?
In today’s hyper-competitive society, we’ve become obsessed with our own victories. We are quick to post a victory on Facebook to ensure that everyone recognizes our success. Rarely, do we take the time to praise the triumphs of others. Finding joy in the success of others is the quickest way to your own success! Trust me on this, it feels good to release the fear that their success somehow negatively impacts you because it doesn’t – unless you say it does. Realize that there is more than enough to go around. Replace, why them and NOT me with them now, me next!
This week, challenge yourself to recognize and celebrate the victories of others…even your competition and watch the positive energy radiate back in your life.

Love Your Hair,
A new exhibit opened at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art that intends to inspire people “to get back to their roots” — pun intended. The show, “AFROS: A Celebration of Natural Hair,” comprises about 60 images from the book of the same name by Brooklyn photographer Michael July. In April 2012, he published a 450-page coffee table book celebrating natural hair — in particular, the Afro. Beginning seven years ago, July traveled the country photographing and interviewing people of all ethnicities who wore their hair in Afros. The narratives that go with the photos tell the individuals’ “hairstories.”
“Afros are everywhere, it depends a lot on where you’re at in the country.” July says he sees a lot of Afros in Brooklyn and notes an abundance of blogs and YouTube videos devoted to transitioning from chemically straightened hair to natural hair. He describes it as “a whole cultural renaissance.” The Afro was popular in the ’60s and ’70s, first as a symbol of rebellion and black pride. But then many African-Americans — actually people of all ethnicities — started wearing Afros just because it was the style. Even some people with straight hair got curly permanents so they could wear Afros. Eventually, like most trends, its popularity waned. But it is back!
Love Your Hair,
Letting go of your relaxed ends is a major step; this is the “all in” option, similar to sky diving – no turning back. There is no easing in and for many is a pivotal moment as it is immediate, bold and deliberate.
Once you make the decision to stop chemically altering your hair, you need to decide how you’re going to go about it. If you decide to do it and the process of transitioning may require a bit more time than you hoped then the next and quickest route is the big chop. Once you cut away all of your processed hair, you instantly have only one texture to deal with as the chop eliminates the need to work with both your transitioning and previously permed textures.
