My daughter cut my very long hair only because I insisted, now I am sorry! Have you ever thought you really wanted something because it would make your life so much easier? That is what I wanted. I had so much long, wavy, unmanageable hair that I would actually dread doing things with it. I usually put it up in a clip and it would cascade down very heavily often pulling the clip loose. Everyday it was a work out to brush through it after my shower and quiet often was thrown right back up into a clip. Last Saturday was one of those 'days' where nothing was going as planned. It rained on a beautiful sunny day and it just was not good. I wanted to say bump everything, I want life simple and easy!
I called my daughter after work and asked her to stop by. My hair was still wet from being washed so it would be a breeze. Not so much. She didn't want to be the one. She replied "Mom you've been growing your hair out and although I think it would be much easier short, look what happened when you had it cut at the hospital." Referring to a devastating event in my life. I had agreed for it to be cut but I couldn't stand the results. It was short and I felt old and out of the game. I've always had shoulder length or longer hair and it was SHORT. Not a little shorter than shoulder length, it was really Short!
I didn't feel like myself. I didn't want seen by people I knew, I felt like I looked horrid.
Saturday, somehow, (probably because she was in a hurry) I talked her into cutting it. My scissors weren't the best, my son kept popping in an out and I was even told I moved more than a toddler. Anywho, some how my very long hair that was suppose to be cut below my shoulders ended up neck length. Oh no we're back there again was my first thought. It'll be winter soon I can hide in the house. My faithful online friends don't know or care what I look like... but I still feel old! My faithful clips can be laid off as there isn't enough hair to put in them! I feel 20 years older and have realized I am not good at making quick decisions! It is ok if it takes me two days to decide if I'm going to go out any given day or all year just to decide I'm not going anywhere on vacation from now on I will use that time, as much as I need before making any choices. The only good side I found was that by spring it will be at least shoulder length as it grows very fast. It will be healthier, and oh how easy it will be to take care of! Hey there is 3 good things and I wasn't trying hard. I guess it is how you look at the glass - half empty - half full? I'll take half full how about you?
