Yes, you read it right. I just got a haircut last night. It was a sudden decision while I was looking in the mirror. I felt that working out isn’t enough to change the way I look. So, I asked my mom to cut my hair to shoulder length. I have no regrets unlike other girls do after having a haircut.
I feel lighter now not only physically but also emotionally. There’s something about my long hair that irritates me. Does that sound strange? The parts that I let go of were dry and frizzy – another reason why I decided to get a haircut. Since last week, I’ve been trying to do a home remedy for my hair to get treated. I just found out that water rice is good for maintaining our hair healthy. The first day I did that, I didn’t let it sit for 24 hours. My mom laughed at me when I told her about it. She saw me doing it but she didn’t bother to approach me that I was doing it wrong. She’s such a good mom to me (sarcastic tone).
Before I posted here on my blog, I saw a few pages on my journal that reminded me of someone from my past. I decided to tear those off and throw them in the garbage. I felt nothing while doing that yet my mind told me to wish this person all the best in the world. He deserves it.
I realized today that cutting my hair isn’t only about standing with your decision but also about facing your fear. It’s about being brave that whatever the outcome of your decision, you have to face it. The same with letting go of the things and people you thought you can’t let go of.
Thank you so much for reading!
