05 May 365 to Love: Day 1
I cut my hair, and I have never felt more liberated.
Yesterday, I decided to do a 365 day cleanse in an effort to really find myself. No relationships, no dates, no sex, no kissing. For an entire year. I am challenging myself to step out of my comfort zones and to conquer all of my fears. The first step was cutting my hair.
Hair. It’s become such a huge part of who I am, how I define myself and my beauty. I cringe at the thoughts of the men who have placed their hands in my coils, kissed my forehead, and whispered pretty lies to me. I want a fresh start. I want to learn to love my face, I want to learn to be confident in who I am without the crutch of “pretty hair.”
Yes, I was afraid to cut my hair. What if I’m not pretty anymore? What if no-one wants me anymore? The truth of the matter is that I haven’t been able to keep a man with big hair, so that obviously wasn’t the defining factor. Besides, this isn’t about a man, this isn’t the story of some broken hearted girl who let a dude crush her spirits and so she went crazy and cut all her hair off. This is the beginning of a journey. This is where my story begins. I have made a career off of inspiring women, all while forgetting to inspire myself. This inspired me to live for me.
I am vlogging this entire experience. If you’re interested in following this journey please subscribe to my channel and lookout for all of my “365 to Love” uploads.
