One day at work, an older woman approached me and told me how youthful and beautiful my natural skin was. I was flattered. I was like "oooo I'm really feelin' myself right now." That quickly went away when she asked what product I used. "Coconut oil", I responded confidently. Her smile vanished and she shook her head in disappointment. I was very confused. How was this lady going to compliment my skin and then criticize my regimen....like what? "Why you say that", I asked, slightly defensive. "Coconut oil has wonderful benefits but because it's such a thick oil, it clogs your pores and makes you age quicker", she responded. I. Was. Shook. I had been using coconut oil for the past 3 years and not once had I ever come across someone who was against it. "What do you recommend", I asked. "Oh, honey, there are so many oils...find one that works for you. I like rosehip, jojoba, argan, and grapeseed." She left after that. That night I did some thorough research on the best skincare oils and their benefits. I liked the info I found on rosehip oil the best so I decided to go to my local beauty store and pick some up. From there, I fell in love. My skin was glowing. It looked so healthy. It lasted all day.
After a recent move and bunch of life questioning, I broke down into tears, praying to God, asking him my purpose in this life. I was so distraught. I was so uncertain. I was so unhappy. My little sister was sound asleep next to me while I nasty cried myself to sleep. I woke up the next day feeling different--or moved you could say. There was a shift in the air and I could feel it. For whatever reason, I woke up having a sense of certainty. I knew I was going to be an entrepreneur from the time I was a little girl, but never actually felt it or had insight of it until that morning. I cannot explain, but I was spoken to. I literally searched my room for answers on what it was that God wanted me to do. I was immediately drawn towards the bottle of rosehip oil I purchased months ago. "Alright". I'll do it.
