@monnymcgee - a woman to be celebrated // How funny is it that I finally post a photo of your hair right before your next appointment? Haha, one day I'll catch up with my phone photos....maybe. Anyway, Monica is a fellow animal lover, and as a vet tech has dedicated her life to helping the voiceless 2 years ago I was honored to be there for her on the specialist of days - her wedding day. It was an amazing time spent with amazing women! Monica, thank you for being such an awesome client, it's a privilege to do your hair @oraclesalon#itsmorethanjusthair
It is so easy for us to focus on the negative things that happen in this life. Ultimately (coming from a place of practice here, not mastery) don't let the bullshit bother you. Grow your emotional intelligence to the point where you can just let go of dumb shit that doesn't matter and isn't serving you. Stop overthinking it. Your brain will thank you, your friends will thank you, your therapist will thank you. Live with the bigger picture in mind, BREATHE, and try to always think after a negative experience, "What could I have done differently to affect the outcome?" Take responsibility for the things that happen to you. Because your life is a reflection of your thoughts, don't spend time thinking about the bullshit - it'll just create more! I know this from personal experience. Laugh it off and move the fuck on!
@kim_stone - a woman to be celebrated // Kim is mother to a very talented musician, wife to another very talented musician, and has told me what she does so many times but I still won't articulate it correctly so let's just say she works in a lab and is super science-y. She is an amazing conversationalist and an expert knitter. In fact she made me a knit hat one year for Xmas and it is still this to this day my favorite hat. She is also an amazing photographer, I have one of her images hanging in my home! She likes to wear her hair color in the same fashion as her personality. Bright, colorful, and unafraid. Thank you for being such an amazing guest in my chair, Kim, you are a treasure! Don't ever forget it! @oraclesalon#itsmorethanjusthair
Nothing is cheaper than words, however sophisticated, however impassioned, because talk never equals action, ever. We can get all wrapped up in billowy thoughts of world peace, or we can manufacture peace in our own little corners of the world this very minute with achievable acts of kindness toward family members, neighbors, co-workers, store clerks, philosophers of all stripes, and, if we’re really serious about it, our enemies. #realtalk#openmindedness#philosophyoflife
