Progress Check – October 2018

It’s been over a year since my last formal Progress Check. And I think I’ve made a lot of progress and positive changes. I think this blog is doing it’s job, so overall, I’m happy!

My hair is feeling good. My skin, well the less said about that the better, mostly because I’ve been doing the bare minimum. And I’m feeling really good about myself. It comes in waves but the overall feeling is good. I’m going through some stuff at the moment (nothing too serious) but it’s getting me down. But I know all the things that I’m actively working on are doing what they’re supposed to.

I washed the kids hair today and everyone’s hair is poppin! I’m still struggling with detangling my daughter’s super thick hair so have reached out on Reddit to the natural hair community and got a few ideas to try. But I’m actually quite hopeful that I’m very close to cracking the code on that one.

The blog is causing me a few technical issues still (you may notice I’ve lost a few pictures and social media sharing buttons) but they are also under control.So basically my feeling right now is “You got this!”

It’s a pretty good feeling. And one that I should feel more often but you often get bogged down in the negative. You can’t see past it, you can’t see the forest for the trees as they say. It’s so hard to overcome and I have to admit, I generally fail at it. I’ve realised it’s a pattern that I need to change. Self doubt is crippling to progress. I want to doubt myself less. That is my next big goal. I don’t care about weight loss. I don’t care about being accepted for anything other than me being 100% me. I don’t want to do things and worry about the reception I’ll get or think about taking it back.

I want to make the most of every opportunity that’s laid out in front of me. So basically, this progress check is to say, things are going well but I’m a work in progress. And when she’s done, she will be glorious.

Let’s keep growing together!
