If you've been a committed follower of my blog, you will know that this last year was very tough for me--in many arenas--and stripped me of a lot of my pride and confidence. There are definitely positives that have emerged from this (gratefulness, determination, patience), but now that things are on track, I have really been taking time for myself. I usually would consider this greedy & selfish, but it does make all the difference.
This month, I've gotten a pedicure and a facial...plus have been working out & eating right like a renegade (I lost 4 lbs last month!)...
Also, that super short haircut I'd had (see below), is finally growing out. Right now I have post-shower damp hair...and it is pleasantly cascading past my shoulders. I'm almost 26 and I'm just getting to how I want to be. It's happiness :)
