I am and I am not my hair… I am.

Posted on

I am my hair. Often adorned and embellished, this external extension of me, this visual exterior show of me. Be it long, short or somewhere in between, there is no denying that I am my hair. Internal factors sometimes directly affect our hair. Those that employ some semblance of a healthy regimen (diet and lifestyle) are rewarded with vibrant, lustrous hair. Stress can literally wreak havoc on a head of hair! Causing dry, brittle hair and serious breakage. Hair loss is sometimes the result of side effects of medicines and aggressive  medical treatments (see hair loss and chemotherapy, http://www.healthline.com/health/chemotherapy#SideEffects3). Have you ever heard of alopecia (http://www.healthgrades.com/conditions/alopecia)? Is it safe to say that the presence or absence of a thing so seemingly simple as hair, can contribute to the overall build up or break down of ones’ personality? Is hair then an environmental factor? I did after all grow up without my father, but I been rocking this hair for 30+ years. Nevermind if the walls could talk. If our hair could talk, oh the tales each head of hair would tell! I believe that consciously and/or subconsciously, hair does affect our day to day lives. Another component which is me… My crown and glory. My strength. I am my hair.

An addiction is the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. Do tell! What’s your addiction?

“I felt like I needed a man to validate my worth. Sex made me feel wanted, needed, desired, beautiful, powerful, loved. I was totally in control! Right?”

“Every ex is like a dealer serving my favorite brand of drug. They know what I like & how I like it and each is all too willing to give me what I want! It may seem free, the parting of legs, but it comes with a heavy price to pay…

In your hands I’m a mess. My body screams for sex. And you are all too willing to oblige. My knees your body pry. As you thrust into that sacred part of me. This desire, this need, this addiction is obviously stronger than I’ll ever be!”

“Is that the ultimate need? To secure some agent to act as a salve, a bandage, a cover-up, concealer over the black eye, as opposed to facing the issue head on. Nobody wants to address the fist. We’d all much rather take something for the pain and make it all go away.”

The true story of one woman’s struggle against domestic abuse…

Posted on Updated on

FreedomInk Publishing proudly presents Dawn Miller​’s debut title… Darkness Before the Dawn.

Born under the light of the rising sun, I was named after the beauty of the new day. Later to be given the moniker of Desert Rose, it all fit together. Born as the sun rose over the desert, a place that only comes to life after the storms, at a time of day that is most beautiful, only after the darkest hours. This is me. For my life became the darkness of abuse, neglect, the total removal of all that was light in my life; the end only coming as the strength and beauty of the light returned, removing the darkness that engulfed the hours before the dawn. {Keep scrolling to read my review}

DarknessBeforeTheDawn banner 2014

*My review: I gotta tell you. This book ain’t no easy read. Great writing pulls you in, holds you captive and renders you helpless to every emotion penned! Darkness Before the Dawn reveals so many of the pains that most would be too ashamed to admit, too embarrassed. I applaud Dawn for writing such a deeply disturbing yet beautiful book. I implore the world to read this book. The scars of another carry the possibility to save us all. Just my little ol’ opinion

The open topic for discussion at the dinner table tonight, will not be the base of a new conversation. We’ve been talking about it for months. August 15, 2014, I married the most amazing man ever. He does not complete me, only I can do that… What he does is something even more spectacular. He compliments me! We make a great team. It’s no surprise that I couldn’t wait to share every aspect of my life with him. That includes domicile dwellings. Living areas. A home. A few days before Jeremy and I said, “I do.” we officially became ‘a couple under one roof’. The three bedroom, one bath was already pretty quaint. The space became even cozier with the new addition to our foursome; myself and three children. We soon set off on a mission to find more space. We needed it. Badly. We were practically on top of each other in the room we now shared. Not that I was complaining or anything. But our belongings were busting through the seams of our former (tiny) house. Not quite a full month into this newly married life and we found a larger place. Four bedrooms, two full baths. From one rental to another, however, the new landlord gave us all the information needed, if we should choose to buy. Well we’ve settled into a nice little renter’s groove. I think it happens like that a lot. Just rolling along. Renting happily until one day you realize that the house you’ve made a home is truly not your own. Yep. That realization will hit’cha like a ton of bricks. So we’re discussing the possibility and probability of becoming land/home owners. The idea of it all has me tickled pink. Now the question is, do we buy?
