“I’m always amazed at friends who say they try to read at night in bed but always end up falling asleep. I have the opposite problem. If a book is good I can’t go to sleep, and stay up way past my bedtime, hooked on the writing. Is anything better than waking up after a late-night read and diving right back into the plot before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth?”—John Walters, Role Models (via bookmania)
That weight you’ve placed upon your shoulders is going to crush you. Take it off. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to have it all together. You don’t need to please everyone. You don’t need to be anything or anyone other than who you are. You are more than good enough. Who you are is beautiful. Who you are is loved. Who you are is special in more ways than one. Place that heavy burden on the ground. Throw it into the sea. Expel it from your being. You will be lighter in mind, body, and soul. Live in that freedom of the true you.
•Pour 1/8 cup of conditioner into a small spray bottle
•Pour in a little oil (olive, sweet almond, avocado, coconut, jojoba or any other natural oil that you choose)
•Pour in a few drops of glycerin (optional)
•Add a few drops of essential oil (optional, tea tree, jasmine or peppermint)
•Fill the rest of the bottle with water and shake vigorously.
•Shake and spray on your hair daily, to keep it hydrated and moisturized!
•This is a great way to use up those little bits of conditioner left at the bottom of those conditioners you’ve been trying out. Some favorites to use are: Giovanni, Aubrey Organics & Suave Tropical Coconut.
