The Traditional Right Thing

So many times, we have always followed societies way of doing things. I have learned that sometimes you cannot do societies way of doing things or things will never get done. I know many people who decide that there is a chronological order to accomplish their goals. Sometimes you must get out of order to get in order. When I say this, I mean sometimes you must go against the norm to achieve results. Now I am not promoting anything illegal, however what I am promoting is to go after your dreams no matter how old we are or how much money you have. Sometimes we must learn all the free things before we can begin to pay for things to move to the next level. Sometimes we must start a business before we get a full-time job. Sometimes we must do things that people think is wrong to do things we believe is right.
For example, I wear my hair in its natural state, however I have had it covered in protective styles for about 6 months. I have washed it in between of course. But honestly my hair has wanted to be free and embrace some sun light. My long-term goal for my hair is to wear my curls daily without feeling like they are not worthy of being shown. However, since I am going on vacation in a few days, my mom believes I should have it in a protective style again because then I will not have to worry about anything. Something inside is telling me to just let my hair breath and to take care of it daily. In this situation, the traditional right thing is to listen to my mom. However, I am going to do what feels right. For me what feels right is being a curly brown eyed girl while on vacation with the wind blowing through my hair.
