This is one of those posts that I just don't quite know how to start...I could come up with a catchy saying, talk about how LONG I've been wanting to do this, or I could just come out and say it...
I FINALLY DID SOMETHING CRAZY!
For the past few months I've been chewing on the idea of doing something different with my hair. I played through the typical scenarios in my head and almost backed out every other day and just said screw it, I'll keep it blonde. Then, I was kind of silently challenged by a sweet friend to "live more", and that's when I decided (although life is the longest thing we can ever endure...), life flies by too fast to NOT do a few things that scare you.
So last night, I pulled the trigger and told my stylist (& amazing friend, haayy Bec!) to go for it. I was freaking out the entire time I was in the chair, and even said "I might throw up..." a few times. I'm so happy to say I LOVE my new hair, and am really happy I took the chance.
I'm officially a brunette! Which is funny, cause technically...I naturally am, but almost no one knows it since I usually keep it pretty blonde. I just decided along with needing a desperate change, it was too much to keep up with those horrid roots. Luckily this dark brown dye will fade a bit and get closer and closer to my natural color. I'm excited! I really love it, and am so happy with it!!
For anyone interested, here is the before/after! I will say though, the lighting in her salon does not do it justice...my hair is REALLY dark (like the above pic)!!
I not only want my choice of hair color to be a move to live more boldly, but also in every other aspect of my life. I want to take more risks, laugh harder, and squeeze my husband tighter. I want to run that extra mile, enjoy the occasional second mountain dew without guilt, and snap beautiful photos with more confidence. I want to pray bolder prayers...cause I know my God can handle it.
So, happy Friday friends. What new chance will YOU take today??
