So I have a confession to make…I kind of hacked off my hair last week!!! I was thinking – wouldn’t my hair be so much easier to curl if it was slightly shorter? And when it comes to my hair – I’m very impatient …as soon as I decide to make a change (cut, colour etc) – I want it done immediately!

Since my hair is cut in layers – I was going to ask my stylist to cut it up to the length of my longest layer. And then the dangerous thinking began…how hard could it be to trim it myself – I’d just use my layers as a guide.
Ten minutes later, I was left with uneven strands and shorter-than-expected hair…OOPS. Lesson learned, put down the scissors Zeba! I am kind of loving the length – but I definitely need to visit a professional to get it fixed…and I’ll have a lot of explaining to do!
Perhaps my desire for new hair was inspired by all of the self-help books I’ve been reading lately. I usually reach for fiction books – yet I’ve found myself drawn to these books recently:
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up / Spark Joy – I’m pretty good at decluttering, but Marie Kondo has helped me take it to the next level. In the past, I’d hold on to “good quality” or “expensive” items out of guilt. Her books helped me realize that it’s ok to let go of items that don’t make me happy – it’s better for me because it clears up space for me to see the items I DO love – and it’s better for the items because they can go to someone who will actually use them!
- The Happiness Project – I enjoyed every single page of this book. I consider myself a happy person – and I loved reading the chapters and realizing that I was already incorporating a lot of the recommended practices in my life – while also learning about new things to try out.
- You are a Badass – I heard about this book from Gina and Noelle. There’s a lot of easy-to-read common sense advice about reaching your potential and getting over your fears. I’m halfway through this book – and I’m hoping it will help me work through many of my subconscious limiting beliefs.
- The Secret – I strongly believe in focusing on positive energy – so I’m looking forward to re-reading this book. I read it when it first came out, but I definitely need to refresh my memory!
Have you read any good self-help books lately? I’d love some more suggestions – apparently I’m on a roll! Also – let me know if you’ve ever tried to cut your own hair – and how did it turn out?
