You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Change is something I’ve never been open-minded about. I hate change- I think I’ve already mentioned it in my past post. But sometimes you just need to embrace change and give it a try. And that’s exactly what I did- I embraced it. I once told my twelve-year old self that I would NEVER do anything to my hair- I won’t curl it or straighten it or even have fringes. I vowed that I will keep it as untouched as I can. But times change and with that I also change. I grow up. And with growing up comes all the insecurities of being an adolescent. I’m already at the “coming of age” stage of my life. I’m going to officially be a woman in less than two months and I wanted to do something that will make me feel like one. So last Friday, I made the daunting choice to have a Brazilian blowout. No more dry wavy hair. Say hello to my new and improved straight hair. And I’m wearing heels for the first time. How’s that for a change? At first, I was actually a little apprehensive because I have a small head. A lot of things were going in my mind-what if it doesn’t suit me, what if my head would look smaller, what if people would laugh at me or what if I look worse than I did when I have frizzy hair? It’s safe to say that I was second guessing myself for the whole six hours. But I still ended up liking it. I mean even if I didn’t like, it’s already there. I can’t do anything about it anymore. Plus I learned that sometimes change can be a good thing. And don’t live your life full of regrets. If you don’t like what happened then move on, at least you learned from your mistakes. And if things go the way you wanted it then good for you. And with that I’m going to leave you with a quote from the movie We’re the Millers:
