There was a new moon last Saturday, the 24th, just a few days after the Summer Solstice. Did you feel the magic?!? I was feeling the magic. I spent my free time with my tarot cards and scrying into the unknown future. Then on Saturday I took the plunge. I dyed my hair. ;)
Before I go on, I LOVE IT! lol It makes me feel mysterious and witchy--something I've been missing in my mundane 9-5 life. P.S. It looks gorgeous with my belly dance costumes!
Now I didn't make a big deal about it when I went into work on Monday, because I wanted to see what people would say. I've always been dark blonde and this was a dramatic transformation. I've had a lot of ladies tell me they like it, but also a lot of people who say "oh, you dyed your hair" and they change the subject. I've even had a few guys tell me they miss the blonde hair.
My point in all this is... Changing my hair on the New Moon made me feel like I was making a change in myself. A commitment to my authentic, real Jenn Rose self. So what do I care if someone other than I, does not like my new look?! I feel empowered and I love my choice.
We spend a lot of time seeking other people's approval of our looks, our behaviors, and so on and so on. We can't make everyone happy. It's impossible. Let's make a pact to stop seeking approval of others and seek approval in ourselves. If doing something makes you happy, do it.
Burgundy hair and all,
