It’s Gone!

Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my Hair Today…Gone Tomorrow blog post and Facebook comment.  All of you have been so lovely and encouraging.  I’m thankful to have such wonderful friends and family.

I officially received permission from my husband, Chris, to cut my hair shortly after I created the blog post.  (For those of you who don’t know me well, it was just a joke.  Rest assured.  My husband doesn’t actually control me.)  I did, however, value his opinion, which is why I asked before showing up at home bald.

I instantly made my decision on what cut I wanted, and scheduled an appointment.  Then, for the next 48 hours before I could actually get the cut, I worried and second-guessed my choice and wallowed in self-pity.  Typical Sara-move.  I was so frustrated with myself.  Change is not easy for me.  I doubt my decision making skills.  I worry I’m making the wrong choice.  I’m terrified of regretting my actions after the fact.  It was miserable.

But, what got me through was this: if I’d had the option of cutting it right then and there, I would have.  It was what I wanted.  The worrying and second-guessing wasn’t being true to myself.  Idle time is never a friend.

On Saturday, I went from this Sara:

I literally smiled the entire time she was cutting my hair.  I couldn’t get over the excitement.  Since getting a new do, I haven’t had one regret.  In a way, I feel like I’ve found myself again.

  1. Love that cut, you definitely rock it! After 27 years of struggling with my hair I finally, about 3 months ago, found the cut I love and can rock. I had the same problem as you – tons of product and time and I still wasn’t happy. My husband has known me with long, medium and short hair. He loved the long but knew it was a ton of work for me and I never felt good about it. But, he loves that I can rock the cut I have now and I never complain about a bad hair day so I’m sure that’s a bonus in his book. Glad you found the perfect look for you, you look great!

  2. Sara:) Thanks for saying hello on my blog! That is AMAZING that you taught English in NEpal. Isn’t it an incredible country? We loved living there (even though it was hard at times!) and fell in love with all that God is doing there! So fun to get to “meet” you! Have a great day, love Katie

    1. Of course! When I saw you are in Nepal I couldn’t help it!! I’ve been to several countries and Nepal was definitely the most challenging for me. But, I miss it terribly. I look forward to reading more from you 🙂
