I did it.
I cut my hair short.
|Me on my way to spin class this morning. |
I actually washed my hair TWICE today.
It took a total of 10 minutes.
As one of my writing group buddies said,
"Why wear someone else's hairstyle on
This comment made an impact on me.
Although I never met the woman whose hairstyle I had on my head,
I knew a little about her:
- She never worried about being on time.
(Maybe she was independently wealthy?)
- She was naturally thin, so she never worried about
working out and having to deal with The Hair.
- She was willing to spend 45 minutes every time she washed it.
Maybe she had people who did that for her.
Like a Real Housewife maybe?
On Wednesday all that changed.
And in a word, I am wildly happy that I found the
missing hairstyle that belongs to me.
