A big chop is about new beginnings. While I know the BIG CHOP often refers to our hair.. we may need to give a big chop to other things as well.
Do you need to do a big chop of a toxic relationship in your life? Do you need to do a big chop of comparing yourself to others on Instagram? It's a lot of things that takes our energy that we need to give a BIG CHOP!
You may say to yourself...just like we do with our hair.. "I want to do a BIG CHOP but how??" Let's talk about it. How do we do a BIG CHOP with things in our lives that no longer serve us.
Here are quick 3 tips and you can get to chopping.
1.) IT HAS TO BE REPLACED WITH SOMETHING ELSE
If we have decided that a toxic relationship no longer serves us, we must replace it with something else to fill that void. Here's an example. You have an unhealthy relationship with your boyfriend and you know you need to do a BIG CHOP with him. But you know you're going to miss the time you spend with him. It's a good idea to make sure you discover healthy people or outlets that can occupy that time. Consider getting a friend that can be your daily walking buddy or take up a new hobby. Fill that VOID.
2.) Prepare for the NEW CHANGE
When you do the BIG CHOP on your hair, it excites you when you think of cute hair styles or accessories you can rock with your new look. It serves you to prepare for the good things to come in the transition to the BIG CHOP in your life. Start looking up what earrings would look nice etc. Same with other things that you will transition from, look at what is to come and prepare for the good things to come with it.
3. Let the DEAD bury the DEAD
Once you've decided to do a BIG CHOP whether it is with our hair or something else like holding a grudge towards someone else.. LET IT GO!! Don't go back because you have CHOPPED IT OFF. No going back. This reminds me of a scripture in the Bible. A man wanted to follow Jesus and the man asked Jesus if he could bury his father. Jesus replied, "Let the dead bury the dead." Whew! That's deep. I take that as it is time to move forward. So once you have decided to do a BIG CHOP, keep your eyes straight. No need to look back.
I hope this has helped you whether you are planning for a BIG CHOP with your hair or something else that no longer serves you.
