Change is Good

I want to thank everyone who participated in The Husband Project these past couple of days! I think it is so much fun and beneficial even if you just do a few of the projects. For more information and to purchase the books to go this link The Husband Project

Now back to normal everyday posts.

I have a few things on my mind. I'm going through some changes. I am trying to work on being more positive and outgoing. I still see myself as this shy quiet kid in the back of the room but it's time to take charge. So while I work on that it's time for a new hair style! I'm thinking something like this the short angled bob. I did not come up with that when I googled short hair cuts that came up.

I have been growing out my hair for a while now and I have at least 10 inches to donate for Locks For Love. So now it's just up to me to get the courage to go and chop it all off. And after that is done I'm going to dye it dark brown. I always feel better when my hair is dark brown. and while I know the locks for love people accept colored hair I feel like natural healthy hair is the best to donate.

On another note, in college a good friend of mine and I had a falling out it was ugly. The worst part was I didn't know how to handle it. I've never really argued with a friend before and definitely not like this one. So basically I just ignored everything. I acted like nothing was bothering me and tried to move on. We were both hurt and I took the silent way out as she decided to be very vocal. I wish everything had turned out differently but it's the past now. So with me being all into changing and becoming a better person I decided to write to her and tell her that I am sorry for the way everything turned out. I'm not sure I should have. I mean really I don't expect us to be friends again. But I couldn't be silent any longer. I don't know that she will write me back. I'm not sure I really want her too. But it has been almost 2 years now since we had our falling out. Maybe it was selfish that I needed some kind of closure to the relationship...but the message was sent and so that's just one more thing I can't take back.

  1. It'll work out if it's supposed to with your friend. Those are always such complicated and emotional situations. I had one recently, and we just acted like nothing happened. It seems to work so far...but I'm sure the truth will eventually come out.

    Cute hair, but I like your hair longer so much! That's a sweet thing that you're doing with your hair though. :)

  2. Aww good for you. I think it's good that you wrote her the email. I had the same thing happen in college and recently she got engaged. I ended up sending her a msg on facebook just saying, i know we haven't talked but i wanted to say congrats. I really had no interest in being her friend anymore but we did have a lot of good times together and I didn't to walk away and never speak to her again. I'm the type of person that even if I grow apart from someone, I still like to be cordial. Anyway, she wrote back saying thanks and some small talk but I felt much better knowing that if I saw her in public I could at least smile and wave. Good luck with your email :-)

  3. First off, LOVE the bob and you should TOTALLY do it!! Second, LOVE that you are donating to "Locks of Love!" What a fantastic, generous idea...you ROCK! Third, and most important, KUDOS to you for writing that letter! I am a HUGE advocate of addressing nagging issues head-on, especially when it involves a friend. I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised with her response. Either way, good for you for extending the proverbial olive branch!

    Wow! You've had a busy day already! I better get off this chair!!
