I knew a change was coming. I could feel it. I knew it would manifest in many ways. One of the ways was bound to be my appearance. I have debated short hair for awhile. It really all came down to one huge inspiration.
My girlfriend won her battle with breast cancer this year. Through every challenge she has faced she has remained brave and positive. She tentatively posted a picture of her mostly bald head the first time she felt brave enough to be without a wrap. And she looked SO BEAUTIFUL.
I kept thinking back to that picture. How she didn’t have a choice, but I do. Then, I started thinking about all of the other people who aren’t as brave but still have no choice. And, here I was with more than enough hair to spare and a choice to do something about it. So, I did. In the next few weeks this hair will be making its way to Locks of Love. And, I feel so beautiful.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
