It may not seem like a big deal. But, ever since the “break up,” I re-vamped my personal style. It has been such a blessing because it literally has made me feel like a new woman. New in the sense, that I’m “me” again. Single and ready for the adventure. One small (major for me) change was my hairstyle. During the prime stages of my heartbreak, I felt dull, sad, blank. But, the re-building stage worked wonders and the post aftermath leaves me feeling fresh, full, bright. It’s AMAZING.
Today, instead of complaining about how long my front bangs are getting. I parted my hair down the middle and went bangless. I used to think I looked terrible with my hair parted center. But today, I looked at myself in the mirror and said to myself, “Aley girl, what are you hiding? You rock.” So good-bye bangs– for now.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been reading the “Single Woman” by Mandy Hale. The book has been so helpful. I reached part 5 yesterday, the “letting go and moving on” stage of the book. This portion talked about thanking those who have existed our lives and finding the “good” in good-bye. I made a small mental list and realized there is so many good things I overlooked.
And while, saying good-bye maybe hard, whether it’s to bangs, relationships, those really expensive shoes you can’t purchase just yet, life continues to revolve. To move. To shift. And it’s all for the good.
