I was out shopping the other day.
This lady comes up to me and says
"Where do you get your hair streaked? They sure do a great job! It's so even, you would never even guess it's fake"
"My kids streaked my hair"
She looks at me quizzically.
"All these streaks I have in my hair? I have earned them. Each one of them is a grey hair that has been "streaked" by something that happened in my life"
It got me thinking.
A while ago I decided to embrace the grey that I have and not dye my hair.
Some people have said "you are young, it just ages you, dye your hair"
Hello, I am in my mid 30's and people still ask for my parents when people call my house, they ask for my mommy.
When I am out shopping I sometimes get asked if my parents are with me.
I do NOT need to look any younger.
I kinda like my grey's.
I have earned every single one of them.
Mostly not because I WANT to have earned them, just no choice but to earn them.
Sometimes when I am down on myself in a struggle and am most probably earning grey's at a most rapid pace, I try to remind myself that I at least HAVE hair to go grey.
Now I think I will like it even more since it looks like mt hair is nicely streaked!
