Last year I was going through one of the hardest times in my personal life, splitting up with my children's father and changing my role at my business. losing more hair, being fucked with by hormones.
I was talking to a friend about how I felt somehow a misalignment with the “ Big Life” part of Big Life Thin Hair, I was going through so much crazy shit, pain, drama, change that life felt like a silo of feeling small. She looked at me and she said, "What do you think living a big life means? You're not offering anybody BIG , happy, shiny, bright life. You're offering people big life, and you're already talking about things that are so touchy and personal and things people have so much pain around."
She's like, "Living a BIG life means pain. Living a big life means searching for meaning. Living a big life is not always a happy life." And that's the truth, isn't it? The big life has big challenges, big changes, big pain, big suffering, but also has big rewards, big moments of joy, big moments of clarity. So big life doesn't mean best life, shiny life, greatest life, life without trouble, It means what it is :Big! Lots! Many! Many of all different kinds. Lots of all different kinds of stuff happening to you all the time. Big life.

My job and my goal in my “big life” is to share with you what helped me to continue to live my big life. How I dove into the deep end of change and discomfort. I was looking at these things that were painful and touchy, the way that I felt about my hair, my body, my career, my life, my habits and looking at all those things being OK with exactly where I was at that moment. Allowing myself feel the joy and the pain and not letting them stop me from living, still loving myself, and knowing how much I have to offer.
Why Touchy Subjects? Because life is too short to not make the best decisions FOR YOURSELF about your hair, your body and the world around you. Life is too short to question what you have to offer.
Moving away from the salon habitat is allowing me to bring education about hair, health, stress, business, change and transformation to many more people than I can in the salon alone. By the way, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! LET ME SCREAM IT ON THE ROOF TOP, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Let’s elevate each other!
