feeling lighter


self portrait, canon digital rebel xt, (pendant by sarah of rustic relics)

Many of you asked me to send or post a picture of my new short hair. So, here it is folks! It might not be short to some of you but to me, it's totally minnie. I've had my hair almost down to my bum for nearly 10 years.

This is all part of new beginnings for me. A shedding of skin of sorts.

I wanted you all to know how so very grateful I am for your amazing affirmations and support via your comments on my previous post. I read them with tears in my eyes. Happy, warm, fulfilling tears. It feels so crazy wonderful that the steps of my journey can help inspire others to find the "roar" within themselves. It makes it all so worth it. Even if we are not walking on the same paths, we are not far from one another.

I think I'll come back to your comments often when I find myself slipping...just as a reminder.

It felt good to let out some frustrations. After writing that post, I found myself feeling so much lighter and not just from the 5 pounds taken off of my head!

Thank you for not judging and for accepting and embracing the myriad of ways my heart beats.

When I was five or six years old I had hair to my bum too. Then one day I cut my hair even shorter than yours is now. It has never been 'long' (as you said it might not be short for some, but it is for me) again. But a few months ago I decided to 'let it grow long' This feels right for me now, to let all of my curly hair down!! Funny how hair can guide us along certain paths. In different ways and different lengths :)

Hugs to you, beautiful!

wow, you look so gorgeous!
the way your new shorter hair sits on your shoulders just draws my gaze up to your beautiful eyes as I look at your photo :)
This and your last post are beautiful testimonies to your strength and special-ness.

I love your hair, it looks great. The highlights blend beautifully with the curls and twists. Most of all, I'm so excited for you, for shedding that extra stuff. I hope this is a new beginning for you.
What I love about this picture is that it looks as if you're looking out at all of us and saying.. here I am, this is me. You're eyes are just so expressive.

I keep coming back here to stare at your picture and thought I should let you know. I love everything about it. The composition, what your eyes are saying, your ravishing ringlets and the way the color of your barette, your pendant and the fushia at the bottom tie it all together. You truly have an amazing eye and beautiful gift. xoxo

You and your hair are beautiful...and I am so happy that letting it all out made you feel lighter. I did the same thing last week, and while it certainly did not change everything whirling around me, it felt so good to get it out and be understood. You do indeed inspire by being so honest...it is so appreciated.

xoxoxo love you
