Embracing Change, One Hair Cut at a Time

Well, well, well, look who finally logged on to WordPress.

What’s up you guys? It’s exam week again for Little MrC and I (yes, I feel it, too) so I am without my usual long and leisurely working hour over the next few days. I also barely have time to get breakfast down in the mornings, let alone work. Blame it on these 3-hour school days.

So anyway, I figured it’d be a good time to blog. 

I’ve been moody and slightly emotional as of late, largely due to hormones but also because the year is coming to a close. Ang bilis. One more year done.

As with the years that cam before it, 2014 has been filled with change, both good and bad, big and small. In these first three days of December alone, things have been significantly different.

This is officially the first blog post written at my new work space

December 1 was the first post-garage sale day, and I am still somewhat feeling the loss of all the stuff I had held on to for so many years. I finally let go, eyes closed, without looking back, and I think I’m still in shock. It’s nice that I’ve been able to clear space for a proper work area, though. Writing here has been good so far. So that’s a double yay.

On the subject of shock, I still feel disoriented at my new short hair. I keep reaching back as if to gather my hair into a ponytail. Of course, there is no more hair left to tie, and I end up just grabbing air.

So yeah, I woke up today and my hair's still short lol

This time yesterday I had very long, mermaid-like hair, which I finally decided to go ahead and just cut. I had been saving it to donate for cancer in memory of a friend I recently lost (another change, a sad one). Now it’s in a ziploc bag waiting to be shipped out to Cuts for Cancer / Donate Your Hair Today.

This morning there was no milk in the fridge, and so I have been drinking my coffee black. So that’s gonna be today’s small but significant change. This is supposed to have zero calories right? Meaning if I keep doing this from now on I can have all the coffee I want and it won’t make me fat(ter). Sounds like a good idea already.

I’m not a fan of change. It makes me anxious and emotional. But it’s a constant part of life that I know I need to learn to deal with. So far, so good since Monday. I may even be looking forward to seeing more changes over the next days and months. Let’s see, let’s see.

So what’s been up with you guys lately? Any new changes in your lives?

  1. It is so nice to know that you are saving your hair for your friend. Also, I am suffering(? haha) from emotional breakdown and all that’s why I also want to cut my hair super short.

    Anyway, looks so nice on you dear! πŸ™‚

  2. I change my hairstyle so often because I think that Life is too short to have a boring hair, lol! We need variety and new looks to feel fresh, I love your new hairstyle, you look so chic with that shorter hair!

  3. I am actually a donor like you but I am using my blood to help others. In your case, I have high respect for people who are selfless and are always willing to help others. Long way to go, you have my respect, mam! πŸ™‚

  4. It’s nice that you cut for hair for something good plus it suits you to be honest. πŸ™‚ Thanks for asking how my life has been. It’s been doing great!

  5. I like your hair cut! I’m overdue for my own hair cut too… my husband’s been reminding me to pamper myself because I never got one after giving birth 5 months ago. Whew!

    I’m kind of hesitant to cut it short because I’m chubby and chubby faced LOL. But I’ll see what the hair stylist have to say.

  6. I can understand how you feel about giving up your things. I did the same a few months ago, diba? Sometimes, we really need to let go no matter how hard it is to do so. Really like your new hair style. Bagay! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh I’ve read your blog about your friend. πŸ™ Anyway, that’s such a…I don’t know what term to use…lovely? Noble? Sweet? Loving?….thing to do to remember your friend. You look pretty anyway in your new hair.

  8. Well, good and bad, kind of a Yin Yang..:) I love your new look, though! Can’t wait to have my hair cut done tomorrow! I miss you and see you real soon! πŸ™‚
