Hello, Queens! Today is THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY where your thoughts matter! If you ever need any advice on anything feel free to email me at, with advice in the subject line.

Stephanie, Memphis, TN, writes "My best friend just recently told me she is gay. I always had my suspicions but I never really payed attention to it. Now that she has told me this, I don't know how to feel. I want to still be her friend but this is kind of hard for me to understand. What should I do?"

- Hello Stephanie, I understand your problem all too well and I can say that everything will be just fine. You have to learn how to accept people for who they are. Although you may not understand her motives or reasoning you should not let this stop your friendship. In any friendship rules and guidelines should be established to make sure neither one of you cross the wrong boundaries. Just remember that just because her sexual orientation is different does not mean your friendship should be any different. Its all about understanding and not being so quick to judge and i'm sure your relationship will not be tarnished because of this.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Do you see a family with kids? 2 or 3? Maybe you don't see that in ten years. Perhaps you see yourself with a thriving career and traveling. You may even see yourself having it all. I definitely have a vision for where I expect to be in 10 years. I see myself with a family, husband and children, and a fulfilling career. It doesn't mean that it will happen but I'm definietly hopeful; can't see it any other way at the moment. We hear that saying that goes,"With great expectations comes great disappointment." However, we can't help but be hopeful that our great expectations will happen just as we envisioned them. When it comes to planning for the future, we are not always the best judge of character of those who could possiby be in our life during the next ten years and thereafter. We often develop relationships with people who probably shouldn't have ten minutes of our time let alone a minimum of ten years of our life. We don't always think of the time we're wasting with people that don't and will not meet our standards and expectations for the future. Thank goodness expectations and standards can be adjusted or I'm afraid none of us would ever be truly happy. Of course those of us who don't have many expectations will have no worries because they're assumingly satisfied with their current state. That definitely sounds like an easier way of living but I'm not sure if it sounds logical. What do you think? What are your expectations for the future?

Tresses Tuesday: Chopper Style- The Big Chop

I get questions all the time about my natural hair and my decision to go natural two years ago. This week I have gotten more than usual. One question that many Brown Queens have asked is "how did I transition?". Well I definitely was not brave enough for "The Big Chop" or a really low cut rather. I actually transitioned for a one year and a half and cut my hair a little as I went along. This allowed me to stay close to my relaxed length as I transitioned. I did all sort of styles that fused the relaxed hair with the new relaxer free hair. I was very careful to not use too much heat or wear styles that would stress my hair and cause breakage where the new growth and relaxed hair met. This particular point of your hair strands is very weak and prone to breakage. Although I did not do "The Big Chop", I've seen some Brown Queens that have rocked the low hair cut very well. One is a friend of mine who just recently cut her hair and looks gorgeous. You go Queens!

This photo of Solange is stunning!!!

Chrisette Michele rocks her BC!!

This is my friend Er'nyce who recently did "The Big Chop" Doesn't this Brown Queen's hair look gorgeous??
