i'm not that great at embracing change when it comes to my appearance. well, unless i suddenly lost 15 lbs. i think i could embrace that! but when it comes to my hair i don't like change. that being said, a couple weeks ago i saw a picture of me from the back and was seriously appalled/grossed out at the length and condition of my hair. i'm well aware of the fact that i totally neglect it and have only gotten it trimmed twice in 4 years but to REALLY SEE IT was a shock. i usually wear it in front of my shoulders but in this particular picture it was all back. after seeing it i suddenly felt like crystal gayle (i actually saw her in concert as a kid and remember loving her hair! hahaha) or one of those scary long haired women pictured here or here. it was one of those moments where i thought, "why didn't someone tell me???" later when i told ruben he said, "um...i think a lot of people have tried to tell you in the nicest way possible". oh. well, i obviously didn't hear them now did i?! anyway, long story short (pun intended) i cut it. this is the shortest it has been in many years and if i'm going to be honest i'm a bit sad. but i know it had to be done. it looks all nice and healthy and all my blonde is gone :(
wait, wasn't the title of this post embracing change? i'll be working on that!
