So maybe my title is a little exaggerated.
I don't know that changing your hair color will actually change your life.
However, I do know that when I get my hair dyed and the gray goes away for a few weeks, I suddenly feel as if I have a little more bounce in my step. Not to mention feeling a bit younger.
While I do realize that I'm sounding a bit vain, the bigger idea here is that we all need to pamper ourselves once in awhile. When we do so, it can change our entire outlook.
I had a bit of a challenging day today. Not a bad day by any means but challenging. As a sidebar, I imagine much of my attitude had to do with feeling under the weather for the 8th day (but who's counting?) in a row.
Anyway, whenever I do something for myself such as dying my hair, it never fails to lift my spirits. It can be anything we do for ourselves though. It's just important to take care of ourselves, and that means taking the time to do something meaningful for ourselves each day.
Today was bigger than usual for me in that I don't do something on this scale daily, but I do try to do something for myself almost everyday. It could be taking the time to read for 20-30 minutes, it could be a relaxing soak in the tub, or it could be an extra piece of dark chocolate.
It doesn't have to be huge to be uplifting.
But in this case, getting my hair dyed was pretty amazing! I think it really did change my life. ;)
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
