Week 33 - #goinggreygracefully update
Got to admit I’m feeling a little “greige” today. 🖤
I would love to be one of those beautiful, white/silver haired women with a glowing & flowing mane. 🦄
I’ve got a growing-out-bob that is a mish mash of colours, streaks, stripes & textures! 🤨
Do I love it today?
In fact today I could quite happily dive head first into the nearest box of Clairol Nice’ n Easy & cover this mop in shiny brown goop. 💇🏻♀️
But will that fix the way I’m feeling inside today? 🤷🏻♀️
I suspect the answer is no....
Just like any cosmetic change to our outer layers, they ultimately won’t repair what needs fixing on the inside.
Sure a new colour might lift my mood for a day or so, but deep down I know that it’s not my hair that’s bothering me today & making me feel crappy and if I did do what I was thinking I would 100% regret it tomorrow.
Because if there is one thing that I know after 48 years of living in this body, it’s that I will always experience good days & bad days.
Today is a “not great day” & more than likely a hormonal highway to Hell.
But the good news for me is that age & experience has also shown me that with every low, comes a balancing high which eventually “evens me out” and puts me back in equilibrium. ⚖️
So I will ride out this “greige” phase & anticipate its passing knowing I have a lot to be grateful for & the positive, strong, happy me is just on the other side waiting for me with open arms to give me a hug & say “welcome back” 🤗
Week 34 - what will it hold?
Stay tuned 😉
