I FEEL free, different, adventurous, BOLD, confident, pretty, and fun. I feel like everyone is watching me- even when they aren’t. I am more focused on my face and my natural, beautiful features. My eyebrows are defined and standing out. I feel like I’m living. I am experiencing a new experience & new experiences make life worth living. I care less about hair. I love the style and I also know it will grow back. I want to give away clothes and get new ones. I feel less attached to things- temporary, replaceable things. I want to thrift shop for different pieces- bright, bold, fun, unique items. I’m motivated to get cute each day. My haircut has me feeling like a new woman. I’m falling more in love with myself.
Why did I cut it? I was originally motivated by Meagan Good in the movie “Think Like a Man”. I debated for over a year! I viewed pictures on Yahoo! of Megan Goode, Monica, and Fantasia; and then I talked to people who cut theirs. Their attitude was always “IT’S JUST HAIR!”
Finally, I asked my beautician Rashonda Taylor @ Taylor and Co. should I do it and she said “You’re pretty, you can do anything.” This was my final push toward going through with it!
Next step? Deciding who would cut it. I had a few options, but my cousin Vena Norwood is a stylist in a shop so ultimately I decided on her. She felt comfortable doing it and I knew I would be comfortable talking through the process with her.
It was a SUCCESS!
Yeah, I’m falling more in LOVE with myself.
