Thursday

Ahh ladies, we just know it when a hair moment is coming don't we?  The dread of the morning ritual when you know that no matter what products or tools you use, it will not produce a "do" you can live with.  You check your bank balance to see if it can withstand the onslaught of a good colorist and stylist or if you'll have to buy a box from the drugstore and look for some kind of magic mouse or gel.  I used to hide a bunch of flaws behind beautiful hair.  It seems the older I get the harder it is to hide any damn thing.  Aging seems as though we become more and more authentic and unable to hide the abuses of our chosen lifestyles.

Today I will remember the older women in my life who I deemed beautiful as they aged and I will remind myself that their beauty was always the love and acceptance I saw in their eyes.  Acceptance of others holds a beauty all it's own.

I believe that God understands the aging pains of a woman and will help us find the tools to let beauty shine from within when we seek this from him.

Well I don't know what the heck made me post this today.

I think one of my most difficult challenges is to learn to accept that I am not 40 anymore. And that beauty is not what we have learned to believe it is.... something models possess.

I think of my sponsor, now 71, who is undoubtably beautiful. Her skin is wrinkled, her hair is grey and cropped close to her head, but she still has the grace and elegance that she had at 50 (when first I met her).

Good morning, pretty lady.

Well obviously.... You are having a bad hair day! That's why you posted that! Lol
I just know that your heart shines through and no one even notices the things that you see and perceive as needing to be hidden. And hair grows. Im waiting on mine too right now! Nothing like a bad haircut to rattle our cage.

That's why our eyes go bad when we get older, so when we look in the mirror we see ourselves with all the edges blurred and the wrinkles erased, like a beautiful impressionistic painting.

Yeah, right! Hold your head up, bad hair and all, otherwise they'll be able to see your roots. LOL

You know the laws of nature command that the minute you make that hair appointment, you're going to have the best hair day you've had in months.

All of us will know what OLD really is someday..if God lets us find out. You are not even close yet, Pammie Pflugerville.

What a great post. I, too, have always "hid" behind great hair and I wish I could be more graceful about aging.

I am also grappling with salon vs. box. Money is tight so I thinks it's going to have to be the box this time...

accepting myself as i am...not as i would wish i could be..i am enough!
thanks so much for this reminder...at least that's what i got from it.
peace.

I sure understand this from my heart today.


I sure do.

I always told myself (and others too I guess) that I was ok with getting wrinkles so long as they're laugh lines.

It seems I'm finding the creases beginning to show this year and I'm not entirely certain that they turn up with laughing so much as are furroughs of concentration or stress.

Aging is sometimes difficult if we focus on it too much.

Getting old sucks but the alternative isn't good either. I'll take the gray hairs coming in. They are starting to show up around my ears now. I don't worry a lot about hair cuts until my wife says that it's time. We are all beautiful in some way, don't you think?
