BAD HAIR DAYS

Talk about one day at a time…
How can something change so dramatically overnight? 
Yesterday my hair was perfect - and today?  Mamie Eisenhower bangs, skunk lines along my scalp and one side longer that the other!  How did that happen?
And what about those days when you wake up with a pimple on the tip of your nose?
Okay, I know, pretty superficial, right?  But let’s face it – who do you see in the mirror when you’re brushing your teeth in the morning? 
A hotty … or the Loch Ness Monster?
And don’t tell me that doesn’t affect your day!
Maybe it’s all a Zen meditation? 
A challenge to accept the ever evolving ups and downs of life?

What do ya think?  How do you handle those changes?

  1. not well, i don't handle these changes well at all.
    lol yes it is the zen of hair, and skin. life is,
    to quote the buddah, suffering. and ever notice when u decide to go for that hair cut that, that very day the hair falls into place like the puzzle
    of the universe. cosmic consciousnes, the zen of hair repair. good product idea. investors welcome.

  2. I like the first line of this post, "One day at a time..." Well, with each day (and with very little effort!) I get a little bit older. But each day also gives me the chance to be exactly what I want to be, even if I don't know exactly what that is, or all that that is, in the moment. Brick by brick. One of my favorite quotes, that embraces the up side of "one day at a time", is from Aristotle: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellent, therefore, if not an act but a habit."

  3. Goshhh,few days ago I woke up and found 2 huuuge red pimples, one on my upper lip and the other one below my nose: I just freaked out..!!!And then I had to use about 2 pounds of foundation cream and concealer to hide them...anyway, it turned out that the results were even worse than the pimples themselves,and I arrived in class late!!
    It's so annoying that we are so much concerned about what people might think of us...sometimes I am afraid that I might "turn into" what I think other people want me to be! In these circumstances I need to remind myself that tranforming into the Lock Ness monster would be better than losing my identity!!!
