Just a phase

 Now that I have made my hair blonde, I looked back on that brown and think it looked good. For some reason I've been hearing a lot about body dismorphic disorder. That's when a person considers their body ugly and it really isn't ugly. Or they think the body looks very differently than the true form. I think many people suffer from forms of this, such as anorexia.

I've looked in the mirror and I see myself a lot differently than I do in pictures. Sometimes it's better and sometimes it's worse. I think I need to become more connected with the real me. And I know I need to be more satisfied with the body I have. I feel better as a blonde even though this pic looks OK with brown hair.
There are a lot of things we need to learn about ourselves. This might be one. I'm a hair person. Bad hair=bad day. I'll bet there are other bloggers who have different focuses. I've enjoyed reading and empathizing with them.

The idea of aging is to accept ourselves and to continue learning. There is always going to be things that we are not completely happy about it but if you are lucky to live longer we learn to deal with them.

I've come to realize that I will never be happy with my hair (curly haired issues) but I feel the same way about my nails: chip in the nail polish: bad day.

It is my outfit - but I must say blogging and taking pictures daily helps me to put things in perspective - especially reading other blogs - you look FAB in both but I am partial to blonde myself :)

I really think the brown hair was flattering, but like the blonde too. When I went back dark for a week a few years ago...I look at my photo of myself and think it looked pretty good that dark. But I just "feel" better with it blonde. So I know what you mean.
