This Weekend I Finally Did It.

I've been thinking about shaving my head for the past month. It's been almost an obsession that my mind would wander to in the slow hours at work, on the drive home, before I fell asleep at night. I was worried. What if I have a melon head? What if I hate it and get stuck for months with no hair? What if I don't look good shaved? I warned a bunch of people at work that I would and they were supportive. So, I took a leap of faith and just did it.

I have never felt more beautiful or more feminine in my entire life. I love to reach up and touch my head, which is now shaved down to a 1. I love looking in the mirror and seeing my eyes shine back with TRUE happiness for the first time in a long time. I love walking through a crowd and knowing that everyone is looking at me but nobody is brave enough to admit it. And I love playing with hats and scarves (it's winter) while tweaking my style back and forth. 

I can honestly say this was the best decision I've ever made in my life. I love my hair and I love myself. (Haven't been able to say that for a while!)

I wanted to shave my head but everyone freaked out when I shared my thought. I did it anyway and I felt great despite everyone's strange looks, judgements and comments. People should do what they feel like doing since they're not hurting anybody.


Thank you! I agree, sometimes you just have to do something for yourself to be happy. (^_^)
