Happy Valentines day

One comment

Regardless of your relationship status, love should be celebrated everyday. Today is just one day that the world chooses to recognize love. 

The world can be a strange place, a place where standards change by the TikTok and love is measured by how many thumbs approve (likes/comments). Hopefully you don’t misinterpret my thoughts; I don’t think showcasing what you received for valentines day is a terrible thing. I just hope all that is not showcased brings you the same joy. 

I had a girl once (or twice) who taught me a valuable lesson about healthiness. I was growing my beard and it looked really nice. I would post on the gram, get my likes, an occasional DM and just knew the beard was hittin. This woman I started dating noticed my sink was always full of hair and asked why I was so messy (if I was petty I would have talked about her bathroom, but I digress). I explained to her that my beard always has hair falling out when I comb it. She examined my beard up close and was shocked to find so many split ends. She then asked what I put in my beard and I told her nothing except when I shower using my “bodywash” and an oil sheen when I want to do shine shine bobo. She was dumbfounded, telling me that I need to treat my beard just like the hair on my head and oil/moisturize it frequently

My beard was getting me the attention I wanted, but up close and personal it was a nasty little thing lol. She ultimately made me trim the beard to rid myself of all the split ends and start growing it back healthy. Once I created a better routine for my beard, it stopped itching as much, grew longer and stopped shedding as much. Too bad I didn’t keep shorty around to witness the fruits of her labor (it wasn’t me *shaggy voice). 

I don’t know what the split ends in your relationship may be, but a healthy relationship leaves you with less to clean up and more growth. As you celebrate valentines day, I pray you celebrate healthy love that spans beyond 24hrs.
