Sometimes I just go for it...

Can anyone guess what I did this weekend? That's right, I shaved my head. I now only have 1/8" of hair left. Jboy did it for me and although he thinks it looks great, it's the first time that I was really upset about it. I cried. A few times. I really thought that I looked ugly without my long beautiful hair...but EVERYONE who's seen it so far thinks it looks awesome. It's growing on me (no pun intended). At least I'm not hiding from my reflection as much anymore.

The strange thing is...even though I'm not loving the shaved head, I don't really feel like growing it out.

I think that I'm actually learning a lot about myself and my concept of beauty since I shaved my head. I'm wondering at how attached I was to my appearance with hair in comparison to the way I feel about myself now that it's gone. I actually realized that I felt embarassed for Jboy that he had to go out in public with me... of course, he didn't have a problem with it, so it was all just something I was torturing myself with in my own mind. I find it so funny how the mind works...
