A New Woman

Firstly, I want so say thank you for all your support and positive energy. I'm always the beacon of light in friends' lives - the one who assures them it will be ok, the one who tells them it will work out, and who reminds them that they're fantastic...even when they might not be at that moment. I always wondered who will be my beacon when I need it?

Well, you guys.

Many thanks!

I got my hair done tonight. I left work early without telling my supervisor and ran around to find a place that would take me at 7:45pm. Luckily, no one refuses money anymore...I found someone.
I was trying to hold off until my bday to get my hair done...I wanted to hold on to my money. I figured...eff the money, when I saw myself in the mirror today at work. My hair was slicked back with the waves of needing a relaxer in the front of my head...the back was sticking up because its growing out and awkward. I had no make-up and I have small bags, carry-ons, under my eyes from not sleeping well. I have a make-up blog, yet I haven't worn make-up in a week...maybe more.

And I said....snap out of it, Nina. You look how you feel and you must feel like shit.

I feel like my old self again. Optimistic. Ready to face the world.

I kinda look like Monica from her Don't Take it Personal days....

Amazing what a haircut and really looking in the mirror will do.
