I remind myself of someone...
I am having something of an identity crisis. But this morning I knew exactly who I was-- I was the lady with the really long hair and I was ready to chop it. I was so excited.
Feeling so sure of myself and what I was about to do. I was going for the pixie cut.
I had over 20 inches of hair cut off today!!!
That's the short of it.
I don't really consider myself a daredevil, but I'd say I was pretty brave today. And I will admit that I have shed a few tears today as well. That's normal, right? But let's look at the bright side-- for starters, hair grows. And mine grows pretty fast, so just in case my new style doesn't really grow on me (pun intended) it won't take too terribly long to return to a lovely chin length bob.
It is going to be so nice and cool for the summer and it is going to feel heavenly for running. No more headaches and neck aches.
I love knowing that I was brave enough to do it-- how very Jo March of me. "Jo! Your one beauty!"
And since I'm selling my hair--how very Fantine of me-- I weighed it on a scale so the buyer knows how much hair there is. The other good news? I will be at least half a pound lighter tomorrow!
