Braided for Success

Posted: May 9, 2011 in Uncategorized

Being a brother to 5 sisters, a husband, and a father of 2 daughters has given me the chance to learn a lot about hair and hairstyles. The image that sticks in my mind is the time and efffort that goes into getting individual braids. So much effort to separate a smaller portion of hair from the full head of hair and then separate that smaller portion into three parts and plait them together. I must admit the twists and turns that go into making that one individual braid makes me often ask is it even worth the trouble to get this hairstyle. As the process continues, I continue to watch but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better and the time is still passing by. When the braids are complete, the style is beautiful and the braids have come together to give the person wearing them something to brag about even though it didn’t look good at first.

In life, the experiences that we have are just like the individual braids. There are twists and turns that sometimes make us want to give up. There are even times where we look back on our lives and it doesn’t seem like the struggles we have gone through have even been worth the time and effort. During these times, we need to realize that we aren’t finished creating the masterpiece that is our life. If we don’t give up, the success we achieve will be even more attractive than a beautifully braided hairdo.
