But that’s probably because I have a blog.
And let me tell you, now that we’re in broadcasting mode, I did something drastic.
For a lot of people, haircuts are pretty standard, run-of-the-mill procedures. A few inches off here and there; add some layers; keep it fresh.
I, however, decided that I wanted a new look overall, and that, while I was at it, I might as well donate to a good cause.
So, last night, I went from this:
Now, I’ve had short hair before. But I’d either forgotten or didn’t realize how nervous I would be to chop it all – again.
Yes, I know it grows back, but what if I hated it immediately? What if my face looked too round? Or it made me look too young? Or any number of inane scenarios? The what ifs are endless.
MJ encouraged me. “Even if you don’t like the cut,” she said, “you’ll still love it because you were able to donate your hair.“
And she’s right.
I do like the style (though it will absolutely take some getting used to), but more than that, I’m glad that someone else will be able to use my former ponytail.
Plus, as an added bonus, with hair this short there’s a significantly lower chance that I’ll be compared to a horse.
Though, I’m not ruling anything out.
