On May 9, 2018 I was an extremely unhealthy woman. Physically and mentally. That was also the day I was released from my position in corporate America. That very evening, I went to church and worshiped on the worship team like I still had a job. On May 10th 2018, I had my health evaluated....my blood pressures was back to normal, my jaws weren't killing me from grinding which caused me to develop TMJ, and my body just felt...GREAT. OVERNIGHT!!! That confirmed it for me. Although I felt humiliated and defeated about losing my job, my job was killing me. With the support of my husband, my daughter, my best friend, my mentor Sisterlocks™ consultants and a host of people I truly call friends, I decided to call my own shots.
As an African American woman, I pride myself on maintaining an appearance that's beautifully acceptable, professional and that promotes self validation. It's one of the reasons I decided to have my locks established in 2006. I want women to feel just as good about their natural hair as i do and what better way to do that than to become a Certified Sisterlocks™ Consultant. I had already taken the class one year prior, and my husband purchased a barber chair for me that same week. I just needed to kick it into high gear and say, "ok corporate world, I'm done.
I won't be back.
I love my job!!! I work from home. I meet wonderful self confident professional women. I love seeing the results of their beautiful hair when I'm done and their positive reaction to how they look. I love being able to be a household administrator for my husband since I'm home. I love taking a vacation when I want to. I love going to lunch in the afternoon with a friend. I love being able to devote more time to the ministry at church. I love getting 8 hours of sleep every night and waking up to a morning devotion of prayer, reading and exercise. I love who I am because I'm not stressed out about work.
yeah...I LOVE my job.
