Don’t settle!

Hi people!

So this is a short, random post about my experience at the nail salon recently. You guys know me, always finding deep meanings in random happenings lol!

I went to get my nails done, because I had really long false nails on and I have a lot of typing coming up so I wanted my own nails for a change. I painstakingly explained to the Chinese nail technician what I wanted and I thought we understood each other. Boy was I wrong! 

I just patiently looked on as she did her thing and when she was done I wasn’t happy with my results, they were way too long and she said my own nails weren’t long enough. I told her again like I told her before that I knew my nails were short and that’s how I wanted them so I stood my ground and told her I wanted them short like we agreed earlier.

So after a lot of back and forth she came on board, took off the false nails and let me have mine😊😁 and all is well with the world.

All mine, just like I wanted…

What’s the lesson you ask? It’s simple; don’t settle. I would have kept quiet and went home completely dissatisfied cos I didn’t want to upset my nail tech or make a scene but I knew what I wanted, long nails and keyboards don’t get along so I stuck to my gun and I got my desired results in the end. So whatever crossroads you find yourself at be it at work, in life or relationships, where ever. If you can have better, go for it! Don’t keep quiet and please don’t settle!

    I like how you always use mundane things to explain deep lessons. Mehn! I probably would have settled because I hate exhaustive back and forths. But this has reminded me to stand firm and not to settle. Thanks dear for sharing!

    I like the fact that despite not wanting to settle, you made sure you dealt with it patiently and with love and didn’t focus on the fact that she was Chinese.

    Beautiful! I actually recently found out a local businesses directory which shows top rated local businesses including top nail salons in your city, it’s named Pajix , this is their website , I found my nail technician (which is top skilled) on there, you can read other customers reviews, check location and beauty salons prices and then book your appointments online! It’s really convenient
