[1: 2,073 of 10,000] Silver Hair and Bangs

In Journal on May 17, 2022 at 5:17 PM

I went to a new hairdresser to have a new flavor of style. I met Melanie.

My hair was over the shoulder and I want to lighten up so I went for the shortest bob possible. The part came when she asked whether I like bangs and I answered no but she misunderstood and cut it.

Part of me was curious what bangs would look like since I’ve never gotten them again for years but the adult in me protest.

I didn’t make a big fuss about the one swoop of sheer because hair grows anyway. I do recognize though the comedy that I’m relating bangs with being a child and my sparse silver hairs say otherwise.

I’ve been coloring my hair since my late 30s to hide my silver hairs but this time I am being wise with my spending and at the same time facing how to show up authentically starting with showing my true hair colors.

It’s unnerving that I’m judging that my hair isn’t in its immaculate condition. I’m going to observe what will come first. (1) Will I color it again or (2) accept and appreciate the present locks that continue to grow.

Finally, the last installation for the home is done today!

The very quaint delicate white drapery hanging light was fixed in my happy liking.

I feel proud that I was able to provide my little sissy with a cute home that we could both enjoy hopefully for the next 2 years and I do look forward that the next home we build is the one we own and not rented. I feel very adult, responsible, and accomplished that I do believe that I can do anything.

It was very brave that we also painted our bedroom walls with dark grey (yes not black as the painter colour blindly saw it). I was thrilled to see that paint could actually be ordered and mixed through a computer. It makes me love technology even more.

Now that the home is settled, next is a car, and a new amazing career that perks me up in every waking day of my life.
