When I look back on today, there was so much fun, shrieks of laughter, giggles, pee in your pants moments as I sat all day in the hairdressing chair of my gorgeous friend and his clicketty, wizardy scissors… a new hair do for a new start, one of radical change, lightheartedness, fun and one I love!
But as I sat in the same chair, my heart wept for the pain of another. My heart so tender that it still feels what they are going through.
And so I sit here conflicted… I feel good. I feel happy. I feel at peace. I feel safe. I feel loved and in love. But how dare I revel in my happiness when I know the plug has been pulled out of the bottom of their world?
Life is a balance. Like my hair change, of dark to light, or light to dark. While I am now in the lighter part of my life, I am now able to support those in the dark.
