After I gave birth to Jacob, I kept feeling the urge to cut my hair off, again. Start from scratch. My 40's has been filled with a lot of changes for me. Most good yet some deeply painful. Finally, one Saturday the feeling to cut my hair became too strong to avoid. I told Sean to cut it off.
All the heavy stuff I had gone through just fell away. I felt lighter. This is not to say I don't miss my thick hair. I did. It still felt right to cut my hair.
As the months passed, it felt great to just get up and go. To look at my face in a different way with my hair was short.
Cutting my hair, as I began to release more weight, gave me extra confidence that I needec. After I had Jake, I look at pictures and go is that me? Now, I look at myself and see me.
I feel being happy with the way you look is important. The hair that I have been given is beautiful. I embrace it fully.
