03 Sep THE STARTING POINT
Realize that there are some things you are not meant to do. There is something about you structurally or historically that is an impediment. Maybe it is something you can somehow overcome or compensate for, but you cannot change it. You need to look at yourself candidly. I am a woman.
Even if I wanted to, I could not change that fact. I am black. I never met my father, but I am told that he was a white man, which explains why my natural hair color is blonde and my hair is naturally straight.
Was it a challenge growing up as a blonde-haired black girl? Let’s just say I stood out among my classmates. Would it have been easier if my hair were black and coarsely curled? Yes, it would have. But in life, we do not get those options. I choose to accept who I am, who I was and where I belonged but I did not allow for that to predict my end goal. Perhaps today is the day you choose to accept things that are holding you back and put your best foot forward.
