And I’m Choosing The One Less Traveled

I hope that it will make all the difference.

My whole life I’ve let the world and my upbringing dictate how I view and value myself. I handed over my happiness to those who should have no say in how I feel.

Now, I’m on a journey to reclaim the pieces of myself that I’ve let others abuse. I’m slowly going to work through my past and find a way to finally discover who I could have been for the past 19 years — and will be, once I find her.

Here, I’ve decided to keep a record of where I’m going and what I’m doing. I will retrace my childhood path to find the fork in the road where my life changed. From there, I will take the path I didn’t take.

And discover who I was ment to be.

Action taken: New Hair Cut

I know that a hair cut seems like an odd place to start, but it was probably the best place to start.

In about 6th grade, my blone hair began to darken and my mother decided that I was to remain blonde for the rest of my life. Thus began the years of frying my hair with bleach, my mother telling me that I looked beautiful as a blonde. I eventually was able to force my mom to stop making me be a blonde. However, I couldn’t get my mom to allow me to cut my hair. She would always tell me that I had to keep my hair long because it made me look so much thinner.

Now I was away at college and about to go back home where I would be told to keep my hair long. I had to make the change now or wait til school started again.

So I went out and cut off about 4 inches of hair. And I have never felt better in my entire life! For once, I feel like I’m good enough, that I will succeed in what I do, and will never be discouraged should I fail.

It’s amazing what a simple hair cut can do.
