I made a promise to myself this year to take care of me. One of the things I do for myself is go to the beauty salon. I hadn't been to one in 5 years. My hair had broken off terribly, I'd just throw on a hat or a wig and keep it movin'. I've been going about every 2 weeks, since January. I had to get it cut short in order to get rid of some of the damage. Ouch!!! That was a hard one for me, but it looks good and it feels healthy and that's what I want for my life and my body. It's growing pretty fast and I get a lot of compliments on it. The funny thing is that the people I've met over the past few years, who have never seen my hair, either don't recognize me right away or are amazed that I look so different.
Actually just the act of doing something for myself gives me more confidence to do and try other things. When I walk out of the salon I feel like a new person.
