Let it go (the short hair edition)

For a woman, her hair holds the secret to self-empowerment. They say that a new hair style signifies a big change in her life.

Guess who cut off 8-inches?

When you think about it, not only is your hair a public statement, but it’s not a quick-fix solution if your barber/ stylist effed it up. Unlike a clothes makeover where you can easily just change your wardrobe, you can only let a bad hair cut grow itself out. In the mean time just smile.

Honestly, I’m loving my short hair. I’m glad that I did it! I feel like it’s bringing back my free spirit, spunk and energy.

Out of all my Chinese horoscopes that I’ve read , my favorite is this:

“You are advised never to forget your beginning.”

My hair is a reminder of my beginning. And so will this blog! Instead of stressing about what to write and how to write it ‘perfectly’, I’m just simply going to write — freely, honestly, unapologetically. It’s like writing free-verse. So before I forget, some thoughts from today:

  • I’m thankful for today for the possibilities it can bring for tomorrow
  • Don’t waste youth on ‘maybe’
  • The inbox is a constant source of surprise and anxiety.

Big change coming my way this 2014. I’ll keep you posted.
