Go Do Something For Yourself

I trimmed my bangs today.  And it pretty much made my day.

Bangs?  You say?  Let me explain.

I do not get a hair cut very often.  Partly because I wear my hair up in a ponytail most of the time and partly because it takes time to go get them cut.

To drop in just to get my bangs cut seems like a lot of effort for such a little thing.

But when they get long I start getting really antsy.  I know I need to go get them cut but there are ten thousand other things I need to do instead.

So I let them grow.  And I start feeling terrible about myself.  I know it is because my bangs look all wispy and long and my rarely plucked eyebrows can now show through.

So instead of taking the time to go get them cut, I cut them myself today.  My hairstylist doesn't like it when I do this...and I know it is not as good as she would do it.  But for my sanity...and for myself...I needed to just trim them.

And what a world of difference it made.

They are not perfect, but I could step out the door with confidence. 

To stop worrying about how terrible my bangs looked and focus on other things that were more important.

Some times it is the littlest things that get us out of a slump.

Go do something for yourself today.

It doesn't have to be perfect, but if it will lift your spirits a little...

You are worth it. 


  1. Isn't it funny how we need permission sometime to do what should be a daily thing? I know I rarely do for ME. I think I might just join you on the bang trim. I could use it!!

  2. love this! it's a message I often forget in the wake of caring for my girls, hubs and the dog and the house. I prioritize myself last when I shouldn't sometimes.

  3. I started cutting my hair a few months back, just a trim. Because my hair was pocahontas-long and couldn't take it anymore, I went to youtube, watched a ton of videos and went for it. Not perfect but it did the job. So glad I'm not the only one who's been there.

  4. I feel this way when my nails are pretty. Thank goodness someone invented that new gel polish that lasts so long!

  5. what a great post! i think your bangs look perfect!!
    definitely going to go out and do something for myself right now though, thanks for the inspiration ;)
