Going Gloriously Gray – Well, I have finally decided to stop dyeing my hair. I have chosen to go gloriously gray, in all my natural brilliant shimmering tones of silver and white. That may not sound like very important news to blog about, but it’s fairly major to me.
It means I am no longer trying to impress others, keep up with the pack, attempt to look younger, or be something I’m not. I no longer need to pretend I am younger than I am. I am willing and choosing to be here in all my glorious grayness, whether or not I look older. I don’t care. And that is so exhilarating and freeing.
It can be difficult in this society, where youth and beauty are worshipped, to let my hair go gray. But I am now making different choices and I simply don’t care if that does not meet up to anyone else’s standards. It meets my standards, and that’s what is important.
And I am actually excited by this, and I cannot go gray fast enough.
I am also looking forward to matching my husband, who has silvery-white hair.
Be proud of who you are!
