One Year!

Today my dreadies turned one year old! Awwwws! ^_^ It's silly how excited this makes me, but WHATEVER!

In this year of being dreadlocked I have learned many things about myself, those around me, and this world we live in. I have learned that some of the best things can happen when you just let go of control and let things go. I've learned that everyone's standard of beauty is different, and just because I don't conform to yours doesn't make me ugly. I've learned that I am a huge believer in "my body my decisions" regardless if it's my significant other's opinion or not. I've learned that I am more beautiful and confident than I ever thought I was. And finally, I've learned that there is beauty in all things natural - it's usually best to let things remain that way.

Anyway, it's been a hell of a year and I'm very proud of myself for making it through the messy stages and the ridicule of my friends and family. I've always been one to commit to things, but this has to be one of my favorite commitments. ^_^

I know you're really here for the pictures and not my sappiness, so here ya go. My timeline. ♥

Apparently I didn't take any dreadphotos in August. :(

We've come a long way, and it's thanks a lot to you wonderful GUDUers! Thank you! ♥
