FEELING FOXY IN BOXY BRAIDS
It started on Tuesday when I left work in the evening. The day had been eventful and I was bubbly. However, while in town, my body started feeling weak as my head was spinning. I had severe chest pains and for a moment I felt as though my lungs were going to fall off. Breathing became difficult and I was almost passing out. However, I managed to get home. I took my previous drugs that were toning down my throat infection and I was confident the medicine would work effectively.However, during nightfall when darkness fell, it appeared to have been accompanied by a darkness specifically made to bring gloom in my life. I had a struggle finding sleep and my coughs were consistent. It was the most difficult time in my life.I was running out of breath and each breath I took felt as though it was my last.I was very scared because I imagined all sorts of crazy epidemics. I actually thought I was having a heart attack. The pain I was feeling in my chest was so much. I was tearing up and my parents got really worried.I missed my class on Thursday due to these pains and was rushed to the hospital. My doc referred me to an x-ray plaza to get some chest x-rays and guess what had been troubling me? Pneumonia! It stole my peace and joy. It took me back to my academics, work and passions. How will I tackle them when my body is so weak and crappy? But, I’m happy that I am recovering slowly. I thank God for such obstacles because they remind me that the journey to success is not easy. Big success does not come without big challenges. A lot of distractions will get in the way but always keep your faith up.
Today’s post is basically on my long box braids. When it comes to my head I love experimenting anything and it has to be outstanding. Box braids are very chic, comfortable, easy to style and maintain. Since the weather is unpredictable, these braids will serve you well. I used 11 packets of long Angels braids and for my edges, Gatsby oil.
Happy Easter Holidays,
