This one was a little tricky. I do a whole range of things but a lot of them aren’t solely for me. Baking? I share the things I bake. The gym? Well, technically this is for me, but it’s also not because of me. I do it to stay fit and healthy, sure, but my mum instilled that need in me. It is good for me, but the way I feel about the gym doesn’t really fit into the spirit of this particular part of the challenge.
What really made sense to me, for this, is dying my hair. I know a lot of people dye their hair. And I know a lot of people do it at home, for a lot cheaper than what I do. But dying my hair at a salon makes me feel nice. The hairdresser I see is lovely. She makes me feel special and, most importantly, she makes me feel good about myself. I love the small talk and the asking my opinion about my hair like I know a damned thing about hairdressing. But, to be honest, I love the head massage most. I get a lot of headaches, so it always feels best to me.
Dying my hair once every three months or so is my luxury. It’s a splurge that feels good and it’s a feeling that lasts for weeks and weeks. And, most importantly, it’s just for me. No one else gets to dictate what colour I dye my hair. This is just for me.
(I suppose my tattoos could fall into this category too. But as gorgeous as they are, they do hurt. So I went with the less painful of the two options.)
!!!! That’s a good thing to do for yourself. It’s so important to try your best to like the way you look and so I’m always happy when one of my friends who’s been talking about dyeing or cutting their hair finally does it because I know they look like who they really want to be at that moment. 😊
Agreed! It is such a lovely feeling. And I’ve never thought of it that way before, but you’re right! 😀
Oh wow what colour is your hair now??
Bright red! It’s been bright red for a while, but I change shades every once in a while 🙂
Ha! Love it. I used to think I read just for me, but reviewing has changed that dynamic a little!
