Happy One Year Anniversary to AG Hair Design , my salon baby.
I don’t even know where to start, but let me say this past year has been such an emotional one. Opening my first business, during a global pandemic, in a huge city, alone….. sounds crazy right?
They aren’t lying when they say your first year is the hardest. I wouldn’t take these obstacles any other way, though. This year has taught me so much about myself, the industry, and life in general.
I always said I never wanted to be my own boss because it seemed like a lot of stress that only a certain type of person could handle… lemme tell ya something. I def had that right… it’s a lot of stress. But only people like me, like us were built to handle. Empath, resilient, fighter, problem solver, caretaker….. I was made for this life. Apple clearly didn’t fall far from the tree considering I am following in my Mother’s exact footsteps.
It has taken me awhile to find my voice, and my brand identity but we have finally landed on something so solid. I’m so excited to share everything I have been working on behind the scenes.
There have been a few rocks thrown in the road but we have finally found our way. This year, this summer has taught me more of life’s lessons than one is equipt to learn so fast. I wouldn’t have made it through without my support system. My fam, my hubby, my guests, all of AG babes, and the AG team I have been building.
I am extremely grateful for each and every one of you who has sat in my chair. Every single shitty but growing experience. All of the love and support.
This year has been a god damn roller coaster. Like I mean up up UP & down down DOWN then up uuupp to dooooowwwwwnnnn DOWN BAD..
This summer is hard to put into words. A lot has happened that is out of my control. Ab hates feeling out of control. So I have turned to what I know best. Music.
When my anxiety is at an all time high and it feels like I have no control of anything…. there are 5 albums I turn to.
I don’t have to think.
I don’t have to do.
I don’t have to feel.
I can just be.
When opening my suite there was a lot of mixed emotions goin on and if you know anything about me…. I feel errrrry single one of em. Where are all my empaths at?!?!
So this was a time I had one of “the” albums on repeat. The only album to calm me at that time was
ᴀ ᴄᴏʟᴏʀ ᴍᴀᴘ ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇ sᴜɴ
Bʏ: Pʀᴇᴛᴛʏ Lɪɢʜᴛs
If you haven’t ever listened and need music you could listen to doing just about anything…….. listen. And report back to me.
