Theme Song Thursday: Change

16 Jan

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C.

Like the song, “I keep waiting on the world to change.”

Since the world isn’t going to change all by itself, I guess I’ll have to do my part, little baby steps at a time. And now that my life is in a constant state of flux, (what is flux, anyway?) I decided to do a little personal update and get a new haircut and style. My friend, Gaby, just started working at Salon Eskape in Plano, and asked if I’d be interested in a hair cut and a new look. I definitely need a new look and to feel special and pampered for a change.

I have NEVER pampered myself. I never had my hair professionally colored, and highlights added. I don’t get my nails done, go to spas, or go for a massage. WHAT AM I WAITING FOR? Old age? I’m already there. So, I put myself, or rather my hair, into Gaby’s very capable hands. TIME FOR A CHANGE!

Step one: take a before picture and just let go.

Step two: cover your head in foil so aliens cannot read your thoughts or abduct you from the salon.

Step three: be patient…four hours later, you have silky, beautiful hair, and Gaby has worked her magic.
Step four: take picture with the cutest little stylist this side of the Rio Grande.

Step five: go home, put on a cute dress, and take a “happy-selfie” to share with your friends. Change is good!
