The changing of the seasons always signifies change in some way or another. Winter to Spring, the snow melts and everything starts to come alive. Spring to Summer, the weather gets warmer and the days grow longer. Summer to Fall, the weather cools down (thank goodness in regards to this year) and the leaves start to change colors. And of course, Fall to Winter, the leaves all fall and the snow comes back to blanket the earth once more.
I started to think about this the other day and I realized, how come the seasons get to change but I don't? I haven't had much change at all in the past year due to my health and frankly, I'm growing bored with my life!
I know it's not jet-setting on a vacation somewhere or making a major life decision, but I decided I needed something for myself. I got a haircut.
This was my inspiration straight from Google images:
Now, when I refer to a haircut, I don't mean a trim and style; I got a hairCUT!
I enjoy the concept of long hair; the femininity correlated with it and the look of it overall. I love it on other people but I hate it on myself. Long hair starts to get annoying after awhile, at least for me. It gets in my face, it gets harder to manage and, being the non-girly girl I am, I never DO anything with it.
When I went into my stylist, she initially was shocked at how long my hair was since the last time she cut it! When I told her what I had in mind and the fact I wanted it all cut off, she squealed and said, "This is going to be fun!"
Just to be clear on how much hair I actually had, here's a comparison to the pile on the floor once I was done to a regular sized magazine....
|That's a lot of hair!|
All in all, I big-puffy-heart LOVE my haircut-I'm planning on giving it a single blond streak in the front just to add dimension and be different.

So, what do you plan on doing for YOURSELF in this time of change?
