One year ago today!!!! wow!!!! crazy how time flies. one year ago i wanted to buzz off all my hair like how it is now but i was way too scared so i started with this cut. just like everything in my life, i had to work up to where i am now. it blows my mind how much has changed in 365 days. my goals are bigger, my self image has improved so much, my views on love and relationships are so much deeper and more serious now, my self respect has gone up a lot.... obviously one hair cut didn't do all that for me but it absolutely set me on the path. it made me realize a few things:
1) i'm not stuck one way. i can change and grow whenever i want, on the outside or within.
2) i can feel terrified of doing something and i can still do it and fully succeed. i can take scary risks and overcome the anxiety and stress of the unknown every time i face it. things can feel impossible and that doesn't mean they are.
3) my beauty comes from within. i can change my appearance a million times and have so much fun with it but that's not what makes me lovable. i am lovable because of my heart, my love and my kindness and no hair cut or change to my appearance can give me more of that or take it away. i am always enough whether people see that or not. whether i see that or not.
anyway i just wanna encourage you guys to go after the things you want in life. you can live out your dreams or you can live out your fears but you're always doing one or the other, there is no third option. love you all and thanks for coming on this journey with me, it's been so amazing and i look forward to more opportunities to grow with you 💙
