RELATIONS WEDNESDAY: A Game of Cat and Mouse

First, let me break down this old dating game of chase called "cat and mouse" or rather how it has been in my experience. It usually goes a little something like this; cat chases mouse while mouse chases another cat who is either chasing another mouse or not acknowledging that he is being chased. If you now understand this concept then you may share my conclusion that every party involved is being quite ridiculous. In my defense and the defense of others like me, as the more than occasional chasee and chaser, when we see something worth pursuing, we pursue it. We do this regardless of the pulling and tugging of the one pursuing us. No one is turned backwards to be willingly retrieved by the one chasing them because we're too busy chasing someone else. We become selfish and ambitious that way all at once. Who's going to occupy themselves with the task of being happy? Isn't that the point? It all comes down to this; Have the person we want at the risk of their desire not being mutual or choose to be happy with the one who wants us. Now I'm not one for settling in any kind of way but I do however believe in reevaluating your desires according to your reality. All I ever wanted is for my desire for someone to be mutual. If you desire that mutual feeling as well then you may need to turn in that old game of chase for the waiting game until the right "cat" comes along.

TRESSES TUESDAY: The Year of The Naturals

It's 2013!!!! Happy New Year, Brown Queens! The BQC team and I are delighted to have you here visiting with us on this holiday! 2012 was a big year for hair. No one had a bigger year than the naturals. There is no doubt about it. 2012 was the year of the naturals. Brown Queens were going natural everywhere. As a natural, it was great to see my fellow Queens embrace and rock their natural hair. I definitely don't think this natural hair thing was a fad. As this new year unfolds I'm looking forward to seeing even more new naturals. I'll be coming up on my 3rd nappiversary in February and I couldn't be happier about my decision to go natural. I straightened my hair for the first time in 4 months on last Saturday. Can we say growth?? #PowerToTheNaturals  Here's to a New Natural Year!! For my transitioners... Good luck, keep going, and you're beautiful! For my seasoned naturals... Keep being you! Cheers!
