My Pixie Haircut

So I did it! I cut my long hair into a pixie cut!

It has been a drastic change, but I must confess that I have been thinking about it for some time now and I’m so glad I did it.

Now that my hair is this short, I feel great. Contrary to what had been culturally instilled in me, I didn’t change who I am or how people see me. I’m freed.

I realized that I spent too much time and energy on my hair. With work, working out, cooking/food prepping, and my friends/family, I just didn’t have time to tame my hair every day, which I would anyway and it would stress me out. So much wasted time!

I feel even more self-confident and self-empowered with my short hair. I don’t need my hair to cover up or to hide me. I am my own person, with or without long hair.

Since my short hair has inspired me so much, I can only advise that no matter what you do, try to find that something that scares you a little and just do it! The feeling is like no other.
