A week or so back I was at the store and grabbed a box of hair dye out of habit. I brought it home and there it sits on top of my bathroom dresser! I keep looking at it and thinking..ok got to do that today. Hmmmm...
I have dyed my hair for quiet a few years now..blond streaks now and again, red which I love and brunette more often than not. I found my first gray hair on my 30th birthday LOL!! My mother did too..dye her hair. I remember my mother's hair..it was thin and so very soft. She hated her natural color. She had mousy brown with yellow-gray hair..she complained about it. Wished it had been a lovely silver. I spent many a wonderful afternoon doing her hair. I miss that! I miss her.
Seriously though..I really do not mind being older. Being in my 50s is kinda nice! Body changes have been a little tricky but over all a really wonderful thing! I have been blessed with a lack of nasty menopause symptoms. BLESSED! I am a pretty happy girl over all. So a few wrinkles really do not make me feel less attractive. I feel well like..good wine! Aged nicely with a good splash of wisdom and a dash of fruitiness.
So what am I going on about here...well..pride really I guess. I have been blessed with something my Mother was not.. delightfully silver hair! Now that I have had it for a couple decades LOL..I kinda like it. Ok, well I like it a little bit..I think! I have been toying with the idea of letting it grow out for a couple months and seeing what I think. Maybe I will love it...maybe I will hate it and feel frumpy. But I just might feel, well.. freed! What do ya think...would you..do you..are you? What do you think? I would love to know!
Happy Saturday all :)
