I sat at the salon debating with myself. How much hair to cut? I am keen to let it grow, so I always try to keep it long. The hairdresser says in Indonesian lets just cut away the broken pieces.
Sometimes we hold onto so much in our lives: anger, regret and material things. But we must regularly shed the dead past. Those split ends are not healthy, so instead of holding onto an extra inch of hair I released control.
I looked to the floor at the pile of hair and I felt much lighter and free with that release. I returned home and began to go through belongings that no longer serve me so I can make room for a bright and beautiful future.
