I have learned to dance in the mirror. This morning as I began to move, I saw my mass of messy morning curls, and I wanted to see them in motion. I swung my hips from side to side and smiled at the bounce and swing of my head and hair mimicking my motherly movement. I dropped my neck and allowed the undulation to take me over… all the way from the wild unleashed feminine curls through the soles of my bare calloused cave-woman feet. I remembered.
I used to agonize over this unruly head of mine. I tamped it down, knew just where the clips and barrettes and tiny elastics needed to be placed to avoid the embarrassment of what I was certain, every eye on my crazy curls. I found the right products to dampen the halo effect of ever expanding frizz. I researched and discovered the best haircutters.
Over time, I learned to stop longing for the pageboy cropped styles I had clipped from magazines, and began to embrace the signature look I was born with. As I grow older, wiser, more sure of my irreverent nature, I accept compliments with grace and pleasure.
My curls are my teacher. I have learned to be me. I am becoming more unabashed in my desire to live and work and relate, every day, as my honest self.
