Letting go. It sounds so simple, but depending on the circumstances it might be painful and tough. Life’s lessons. Letting go of loved ones, friendships, and bad habits. Sometimes we let go on purpose to better ourselves, other times change is thrown upon us and we have no choice but to let go in hope that there is a lesson to be learned and that in the end we become better.
Letting go is an art form so-to-speak. You can handle letting go well or you can handle it poorly. So for this post it’s all positive.
For most women our hair is our crowning glory. It is the cherry on top. Our hair defines us. Don’t think so? How many times have you looked in the mirror ~ you’re wearing a rocking outfit but that hair! Bad hair can put a damper on anybody’s day. We spend lot’s of money each year cutting, coloring and taking care of our hair. It is the ultimate accessory. I am no different. I think I’ve had my hair every conceivable way. Short, long, colored, punk and don’t forget big. Hey the bigger the hair the closer to God! There was a musical based on Hair!
Have you ever thought what it would be like if you lost it to disease? Would it bother you? How would you feel? Hopefully, most of us won’t ever find out, but for many it is a reality. I have been growing my hair out for the last two years in order to donate to Locks of Love. My hair was getting majorly long and I really, really loved it. I haven’t had my hair that long since I was sixteen. I was getting to the point I liked it so much I didn’t want to cut it anytime soon. Kind of had this feeling….hair blowing in the wind. Ok, not really ~ :).
This weekend I decided to part with my hair so someone else can enjoy it. I can only hope that each strand will bring someone the happiness and strength they need to fight their disease. Donating my hair only strengthened my ability for patience and fills my heart with gratitude for giving. Letting go can mean, strength, respect and resolve.

Enjoy your Sunday ~ capture your passion. Happy Miles to you!
