Hair expression could be described as the ultimate beauty, exemplified in feminine energy.

However, having coily, wavy, curly, or wiry hair is considered troublesome to most, unlikely jubilated and implicitly limited in its appeal.

A poem about finding beauty and comfort in this lifetime

I also challenge you to perfect beauty's diverse, dynamic perspective, despite the perpetual debate.

For young girls and women to never have to endure a hair straightening relaxer or face judgment based on their hair's texture would be a beautiful thing.

My curly hair is not only beautiful, but I also assure myself that my hair is acceptable.

My uniqueness is my vigor and the zeal to exhibit it in all moments is my privilege. So, to all the beautiful, fierce and magnetic queens—embrace yourself!

Everyone that is close to us wants to be heard in their relationship. It's for a good reason, too.

Strong relationships rely onl open lines of communication. Being a better communicator may appear daunting, but it's actually only a matter of honing a crucial skill: listening.

It appears to be straightforward. We (mostly) listen to our loved one's queries, opinions, anecdotes, gripes, and helpful suggestions. But how frequently do we actually pay attention?

We often register that they're chatting on the surface, waiting for our time to jump in and say what we want. Something has to be done about it.
