I am not my hair...

I am not my hair...

 I am not my hair...

I am often asked if I am going to grow my hair out again.
And I have heard myself say time and time again that I like having long hair.
I identify myself as person with long hair,
 I feel comfortable with long hair. 
And I admit I cringe just little every time I look in a mirror.

And that is why I cut it. 

To challenge my idea of myself. 
To remind myself that I am... we are... 
infinite unlimited source experiencing itself in bodies!
Remembering that with every glance in the mirror...  
is a total game changer. 

When we actively challenge what is comfortable... 
or our perceived ideas of ourselves and others...
new ideas emerge, new ways of relating.
These are the side effects.


Here is a little song by India Arie
I am not my hair

I there is a calming.
