I love this hat because its slouchy and all your hair can fit in it. It can be worn according to one’s preference. If you have braids, you can wear it as shown in the pictures in this article, but if you have a weave on or dreadlocks, you can cover the whole of your hair. Whichever way you choose to wear it make sure you rock your hat in whichever colour you prefer.
An industrialist asserts that the best workmen in his plant are those who get into harmony with the rhythm of the machine on which they are working. He declares that if a worker will work in harmony with the rhythm of his machine he will not be tired at he end of the day. He points out that the machine is an assembly of parts according to the law of God. When you love a machine and get to know it, you will be aware that it has a rhythm.It is one with the rhythm of the body, of the nerves, of the soul. It is in God’s rhythm and you can work with that machine and not get tired if you are in harmony with it.
To avoid tiredness and to have energy, feel your way into the essential rhythm of Almighty God and all His works.
