On Wednesdays I often find myself sitting in my chair at work, wondering how I'll possibly make it through two more days. Let's be honest, in a 9-5 world, you live for the weekends! Today, I decided I needed to do something for me. So, I decided to get my hair cut. Truth be told, I have been meaning to for a while, but I kept putting it off.
After work, I headed straight for the salon and was surprised to find no wait. Immediately, they did my favorite thing about a haircut- washed my hair. I don't know what is is about someone else washing your hair that is so relaxing, but I just melt into that chair and let them massage away my stress. I didn't do anything real drastic, just added some layers and removed some length, but there is just something a little freeing about seeing bits of hair fall to the floor. I let her style my hair before I left and, for once, didn't leave feeling ridiculous- thank you Hip Young Stylist. Oh, and whatever it was she put in my hair smelled divine. I just felt good, and that was pleasant on a Wednesday.
After my cut, I had dinner with my girl friend at one of my favorite pasta places- the one that Matt won't take me to. It was nice to have a little time to be a girl and talk about anything. We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful day and just took our time. My boring Wednesday turned out to be lovely, all because I took a little time for me. What could you to to lighten your mood on a boring day?
