Vanity and Self Image

Sunday, September 22, 2019

I suppose this speaks about how we see ourselves. This may be a super vain subject for myself but after all I am the one that has to live with me after all. Friday I went and got my hair done at a new salon and I had to wait so long almost an hour past my appt time by the time she started on me I was going to be super late giving family a ride home from work that I left the salon without her even drying my hair...BIG MISTAKE... Usually once or twice a year I color my hair and it's been this way for many years now and I like what I like I suppose. I have been going to the same salon for the past 5 years and I let myself be influenced to go to a different place which was completely my fault. I should of just went with my instinct to go where my hair stylist knows what I like and in 5 years I have never had to go back over anything she has ever done for me.

Peer pressure is NOT just for the young, you have different times in your life where you are pressured by family or friends to do this or that. So this is perhaps a post to be bold and brave and always trust your gut instincts about things and don't allow yourself to be influenced by others or their opinions of what you should of shouldn't my case I ended up with orange roots and I like taking selfies lol and I will NOT take any until I get my hair fixed now. I am supposed to go Tuesday back to the same salon to which they say they will fix my hair but I am definitely hesitating to go back there.....the other part of me just wants to pay the money and go back to my hair stylist where I know she will fix it and be done with it.

I fully realize this all speaks of vanity of myself but, when you want to wear a hat everywhere you HAVE to go I think it may be relevant to those women who have had the same thing happen to them. I have always known I will not grow old gracefully, I will fight it every step of the way even though I am still in my 40's I want to look as youngish as possible for as long as possible in the natural way. Because let's face it, if you feel good about yourself it's a positive thing.

Lately I have been trying all manners of positive things to try and bring positive into my life. I have started to listen to nightly YouTube meditations and honestly each morning I have felt better and the mind is a powerful thing and I think any area of your life you can bring about positive influence whether it be your faith, love, family is always a good thing for yourself.


Ok so I went back yesterday and the same lady attempted to fix my hair well I am going to call that a FAIL and now I feel like I need to wear a hat on my head until I go to a different salon and see if they can fix this. This same salon does not even dry your hair or style it either!

    You have very pretty hair. Keep listening to those YouTube meditations. I do that kind of thing, too.

    I'm definitely conflicted about going back at all!

    I would want to go back to my stylist too! But maybe they really could fix it and you could save money. I mean, if it's paid for, since they made a mistake and they want to make it right. I would be a little scared, though, if I was you, that the new people might do worse, like burn my hair off somehow. Do what feels most comfortable!

    Years ago I was pressured to go to a salon where an acquaintance's niece owned it. I never once got good service. I finally went to a place where I see the same person every time I go. SHe treats me like a friend. We laugh and have fun. ANd I never have to wait. I need to be pampered once in a while. I try to be positive also. I keep a gratitude/blessing journal to remind me when I am feeling down.
