"I'm as free as my hair." - Stefani Angelina Joanne Germanotta

Recently, a friend shared with me a fascinating thing: hair holds an abundance of energy. While I've always understood that energy permeates everything around us, the idea of hair as a holder of energy hadn't crossed my mind until then.

Reflecting on the past year, I can't help but feel the weight of unexpected losses and profound changes. Last Valentine's Day, we said "bye" to my beloved grandpa, followed swiftly by the passing of my grandma in April. Then came May, marked by a painful falling out with someone I once held dear—a mentor and friend whose absence left a void I struggled to fill. And to cap it off, October brought the heart-wrenching departure of our baby, Simba, who had been a cherished member of our family for twelve beautiful years.

Coinciding with this tumultuous period was an unintentional decision to let my hair grow longer than ever before. At the time, I chalked it up to mere laziness, but upon deeper reflection, I feel it was my subconscious's way of grappling with the cascade of emotions and upheavals. My hair became a silent witness, silently absorbing the weight of my grief and uncertainty.

Yet, as I look ahead to a new chapter, I realize the power of choice in shaping my reality. Shedding the physical and metaphorical weight of the past, I've opted for a fresh start—a new haircut to symbolize letting go of what no longer serves me. It might seem trivial to some, but for me, it's a tangible release—a liberation from the burdens I've carried, both seen and unseen.

I feel lighter as if shedding not just strands of hair but layers of emotional baggage. And as the last remnants of the old fall away, I welcome the dawn of a new era, infused with positivity and gratitude.

Here's to new beginnings, new hair, and the boundless possibilities ahead!
