This just might be the strangest post I have ever written. It is about my hair.... Ever since I was a little girl I have hated my hair. My hair has been curly and unruly. Always needed a lot of "doing". Thank goodness for good product. I have been able to manage my hair but it has always been a issue for me. Go to the gym... Go to the beach.... Oh no it is raining, or foggy.... The wind is blowing... Can I just say it... Crap...
Hats are not my thing. I wish I was like my friend Kolleen. Man oh man can this girl wear hats! When I try and wear a hat I usually end up with a headache.
OK, so back to my hair drama.
I'm not that girl anymore that wants to spend a hour on my hair every time I wash it.
I'm not that girl that wants to lug around a "hair suitcase" every where I travel.
I'm the girl that wants to travel light...
The thing that I am struggling with IS... People love my hair.. I get compliments all the time on my hair.... So what I have just done... I know that people will not get it. I have cut it all off... not shaved but - cut it boy short. I know it is not as cute, sexy, as is was yesterday... I know people will not like the way it looks.... Actually I'm not sure if I like the way it looks.... My ageing face is totally out there for all to see.... No hiding with this short hair!
That is hard...
I just had the need to explain myself.... The hair is short.
Michael said to me - on this day one - of shortness... "You look sparkly" .........
That is just what I needed to hear today.
Do I love the way it looks? Not yet.
Do I love the way it feels when I am not looking in the mirror.
Yes I do...
For a while I am staying away from the mirror... And enjoying the feeling of being who I am on the inside.... Outside.
Come to think of it... I am feeling a bit SPARKLY this morning.
Hope you are too!
