She Changes the Weather
Why did I make the sudden, if not drastic change to chop my hair over the weekend?
I couldn’t even tell you how long it’s been since my hair was even remotely this short. Over the years, having long hair wasn’t just a part of how I looked—it became my identity, my safety net. “Today is terrible, but hey, at least my hair is longer than that girl’s over there!” Crazy, right? I was a mess of split ends, but I was UNIQUE.
And then one day I decided that I had just a bit more to offer the world. I wanted a fresh start, a challenge. I wanted to see myself in a way that I never had before. I wanted to be vulnerable, fearless, different, capable of saying “Hey, this is me, REALLY me, I am FAR from perfect, but I control the way I see myself, the way others see me.”
So this is me now.
Or how I’ve always been.
Take it or leave it.
