Working On A New Chapter...

I'm excited about a new venture in my life! It's not a venture that will replace what I'm currently doing because I love doing my Murraytalk Workshops inspiring and coaching individuals on working towards becoming the best that they can possibly be. This is more of a side gig because I have to stay busy - ( I'm sure there's medication for that) it's something that has also been a big part of my life - beauty. I've been in the fashion/beauty industry for approximately 30 years and I have loved all of it. I've had a taste of pretty much everything in the industry from wardrobe for fashion shoots and fashion shows, commercial work, print work, designer, and a boutique owner, and I  have loved it all! But, as many of you know I finally retired from my clothing sales with the exception of my Murraytalk T-shirts...they will live on forever! I was toying with what I was going to do and praying about what I should do when recently I came across Younique. www.youniqueproducts.com/carolynmurray and immediately knew this is what I was looking for. I love the fact that they are the first direct-sales company to market and sell almost exclusively through the use of social media...big plus for me! So I'm off to create a new chapter in my life...wish me luck!

Take a look and see what you think.

Peace, love, & hugs!

Locs

Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.


There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…

Words...

Boy am I happy for Monday!

I had a draining Sunday due to a situation that happened and stayed in my thoughts longer than it should have. So today I'm going to write about it and release it.

A gentleman around the age of 60 that had both legs amputated decided that myself and a coworker was his verbal punching bag. As he screamed at us he always managed to say, I'm an amputee in each sentence. We both remained as calm as humanely possible, and I mentally reminded myself as the horrible and hurtful words were spewing out of his mouth - hurting people often hurt people as a result of their unresolved issues. But, what I also was reminded of  how damaging words can be.

I went home and had dinner with my family, relaxed, and did my usual night routine, but I continued hearing his hateful words. I couldn't seem to shake those thoughts. It could be that I hadn't experienced behavior as such after I left home at 18, so I wasn't mentally prepared for it, or he triggered a…
