This time it was for me. A little trim. A bit of pep in my step and breeze on my neck. Not as short as the last one but a little step backward. Or forward. Or not at all.
Perhaps I have learned there is so much to say and that my hair grows so fast that I have given myself too little time…?
For those who have followed my blog, you know what I am about to explain to newcomers. The Singlestream came into being with the Resolution that I will remain single until my hair falls to my shoulders again and that I will publish an entry for this blog every day of this period. A sabbatical one might say. A break from the rollercoaster of mate-finding to find meaning and purpose within my own space.
“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”
~Étienne Balsan, Coco avant Chanel
It could be a sign of progress on this journey that I feel so confident and satisfied that I cut my hair and extended the period. Perhaps I’ll get to love it here and make it my forever home. Maybe I will find a way to face and eliminate the fears and negatives I see in singleness enough to stay here forever. Even if I don’t, the journey has been worth it.
Today my head is light, I look good, I feel confident, and I am happy to write a little longer.
Haircut = $50
The confidence and growth it represents = PRICELESS
