Ponytail Summer

Standard

I have a confession.  I LOVE this messy hair up in  ponytails and buns business.  I just love it.  But I’m scared of it.  I have a round face, my nose is too short, and my chins…well…there are a few of them to choose from. 

This is the kind of self-attacking that happens every time I pull my hair back into a ponytail.  And it is time that it stops.  I have great hair (even if it’s thinning) and I love the look of a good ponytail.  So, today’s the day that I embrace that.  Today is the day that I decide to wear a ponytail because I like to and not just because it’s a good distraction from skipping a hair wash for the day!

I have become more and more aware (and more and more saddened) at how much self-attacking I do even in the little things.  And we all know that a lot of little things make bigger things.  Just think of the little comments you make to yourself throughout the day when you pass by a mirror or run into someone you think is cuter than you. 

Who would’ve ever thought that a little box of goodies that I received to try would lead to such discovery in my journey to loving myself and gaining confidence.  Who knew that a little ouchless elastic band would change my life for today?  I love the colors, I love how it fits my ponytail….and more importantly, I love the price compared to the ones I have found in boutiques.  It’s like Goody’s knew that I needed just this little band to change my whole perspective and get excited about ponytails! J

So, do it ladies (and gents if you’re so inclined)….embrace the ponytail.  Say “screw you fanned hair look around my face to seem thinner”……let the world see your face…..and the cute ouchless bands you choose to pull it back with!!
