Yes, it is that time of year, when people clean out their closets, get rid of old junk and make plans to start fresh. And I am no different, although I feel like I am taking it to the extreme. I feel like I have to (in a way) reinvent myself. Things have not been going all that well for me for a while now and I haven't really been doing much to change it. So all of that is starting to change!
Starting with my hair. Yes, as most women would attest to, I am very particular about my hair. I have rules about how it can look after a haircut and I get nervous every time the scissors head my way. However, I recently decided to let myself go and I got bangs! Or as my stylist called them "framing." And I have to say I LOVE them! I figured with my new hair, I have a bit of a new attitude, I definitely feel better about my overall look and am liking what I see in the mirror!
Next change....and its a big one! My apartment! Yes, in the last two days I have moved from my two bedroom that I used to share (with some nice and some not so nice roommates over the years) to a studio for just me and Poppy. After getting amazing movers who packed me up and moved me out I have pretty much gotten the place put together. I have a few more little things to put away, but I am starting to feel like it is home. I feel like it will give me a fresh start and I am already feeling lighter and happier (and it has only been two days!).
Okay, so maybe it is only two spring cleaning big ticket items for now. But I feel like it is a chance for me to start over, a chance to feel refreshed and begin again. So here is hoping to a new beginning and good things to come.
