Spin Cycle

I am linking over to Sprites Keeper for the spin cycle and this is my first one...This week you can write about anything and I figured that that was easy enough!
I went over to my friends house this weekend and we were discussing God knows what and he said he couldn't remember something about me becuase I went through 5 stages in about a year and a half. I have to give it to him, he was right! I guess as a young woman trying to decide what you want to do with your life, who you want to be and who you want to be with you have to make a lot of decisions. And as you make those decisions your outlook on life usually changes. Also, the one good thing about being a girl is the ability to change your appearance once you tire of the person you were before. I went through hair color changes, from brunette to red to black to blonde on top black on the bottom. I went from really long to really short to longish.
And I guess the part about changing my hair is random but my hair was always the one thing I could change. Because you have so many things you are trying to decide it is almost like you are a toddler trying to decide what you want to wear for the day. But it's like do I want to wear the cowboy boots with the ballerina tutu or do I want to dress up in my Halloween costume that is 2 sizes to small. You are just trying to decide who you want to become.
And so yes, I did have some moments where I didn't like who I was or who I was becoming I knew I could always change into who I wanted to become. I may not be able to change the past but I can always, always change FOR my future.
I am going to leave you with a few parting photos of my changing looks in the last few years...from being prego to just today getting my hair chopped off for my summer look! (Don't look to closely at the blotchy face and allergy eyes!)

I wish I had the guts to committ to a change! My husband had to talk me into getting highlights a few weekends ago. And I DO feel like a different person after getting it done. Very true. You're linked and welcome to the Spin Cycle!

I think you just gave me my next blog topic... not THIS EXACTLY, but along those lines... hmmm....

And change is good. Helps us express ourselves! You don't FEEL the exact same emotion everyday, so why should you LOOK the exact same everyday???

So true---I haven't had a good change in a long time, but I think about it all the time. Thanks for spinning!

I am not exactly sure what spinning is, but I loved this post! I know exactly how you feel. I can't get enough change. I feel like my life was once so full of change and adventure. Now, it's so suburbia... so not me. You are my inspiration to shoot for more change!
