I am going to the salon today in hopes that this scraggly girl can be morphed into a respectable and tidy Mom with a cute edge…. or at least that is what I envision after I hide the grays and get this unmanageable mess coiffed…
I had my hair ruined by a hairdresser last year… like REALLY ruined…. I ended up losing almost a FOOT of hair after a crazy scientist/salon owner over processed 😦 And I haven’t been to the salon since. Funny enough, it changed the way I feel about myself. It is only hair, right? Wrong… it felt like I lost an extension of myself.
One thing about us chronic gals, is that I think we need to take care of what is on the outside, not just what is on the inside. No matter whether I can’t get out of bed or I can do jumping jacks on any particular day, I always make sure to do my hair and make-up. It makes me feel better about myself….. that might sound vain, but whatever works… right?
Once upon a time this straggly girl spent over a year in bed….. all day, every day, 365 days….. and I wasn’t a cute girl during that time…. THAT IS FOR SURE!!!!! I hated the way I felt, both physically and emotionally, and since then I have committed to making myself as best as I can on any particular day.
So now, even when I feel horrible, I try to pull myself out of bed and take the time to put myself together. I don’t look at it as a chore, rather I feel like I am pampering myself and making myself a priority.
So that is what I intend on doing today….
Gotta run…. my hair dresser is waiting…..
Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!
