Jaclyn Irabor was born in Dallas, Texas, but spent most of her younger years in Denton, Texas.
Although she graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in History, she pursued her childhood passion for hair, makeup, and the desire to help people.
Growing up in a Nigerian household, education was a prority so the news of Jaclyn wanting to go Cosmetology School came as a shock to her father. He insisted that she get a degree and if she still wanted to pursue a career in Cosmetology he would support her decision.
Jaclyn went to shool and worked fulltime and it was challanging. Through her trials she learned a lot about herself and the life changing experience was priceless! After two years and a few set backs she obtained her license and now has a very successful business in which she provides excellent service to all of her clients.
I've got someone that I want you to meet. Allow me to introduce you to this fabulous, kind-hearted, and smart woman. There is no one else like her and I think you two would get along great - meet YOU!
So, you're thinking, I thought I was really going to meet someone. Well, you ARE really someone. When's the last time you actually spent some quality time with HER?
Recently, my husband told me to take some time for myself - without him and the kids. Wait, what? No kids? No breakfast, lunch, and dinner orders? Just me, myself, and I? Honestly, it scared me a little. Why, you ask? I suspect the reason is that I am just used to being around them - being a mom and wife. It seems that I may like them, but let's keep that confidential.
Whether you work outside of the home or at home with your family, we can sometimes neglect ourselves. Let's be real - we neglect ourselves more often than we should. We are so caught up in problem solving and making sure everything around us is in working condition, we forget about the awesome chic making it all happen. We can't help it. Women are natural nurturers in most cases and we all don't do it in the same ways.
Here's a thought: get to know you. Spend some quality with the one person that truly knows you. It's tough enough to squeeze in quality bathroom time, trust me, I know. Start small - 15 to 20 minutes taking off the old nail polish and applying a fresh coat. Make a deal with your spouse, family friend, or relative that would allow time away from the kids. Long term goal - plan a weekend getaway with your gal pals or maybe a weekend stay-cation with just YOU. Whatever you decide, the point is to remember how wonderfully awesome you are. Taking time for yourself is not a guilty pleasure; it's necessary and well-deserved!
