🎶Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
🎶I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
🎶And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
🎶And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what’s going on?🎶
~4 Non Blondes ~What’s Up
When I first caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror ~I thought the first thing that people were going to say when they saw my hair is, “What The heck is going on?” It made me think immediately of that song!!!
What’s going on??? Well~quite frankly it’s a lot of things. First of all, I lost my job 10 days before Christmas and at my former place of employment, they frowned heavily upon any color that I put in my hair~even when it was only streaks of hot pink or purple ~ so I could NEVER do anything like this when I was there. Since I’ve been gone they have been pretty nasty in regards to some of the things they’ve done and said about me…..and now I can do this to my hair and not give a rat’s tail what they have to say about it ~so yeah….it’s a little bit of my rebellious nature rearing it’s pretty head, but it’s also more….
I also have a beautiful friend whom I totally adore. She is definitely a sister from another mister! Last year she colored her hair pink in honor of living her true. authentic self and challenged me to do the same. Because of my employment I couldn’t and now well, I can! So I did. Here’s to having the opportunity to live your authentic self~whatever that means for you!!
Realistically, and the much lamer version of why I dyed my hair pink is what follows…So, I saw this box of hot pink hair color on clearance for $3 dollars a bottle. It promised to wash out in one washing & looked pretty cool!! So with my three dollar investment, the decision was easy and I went all in!!!
Sure I am no longer 25 “trying to get up that great big hill of hope for a destination,” I’m 20 years beyond that plus!!! LOL BUT~ so much of that song still applies. Do any of us really know what’s going on? Or do we all wake up some days a little bit unsure of the things that are going to take place? Do we all ever feel like screaming at the top of our lungs, “WHAT’S GOING ON????????” I think that whether you are 25, 45 or even 75, we all feel that way from time to time.
Sometimes It’s just best to throw on a nostalgic song, die your hair some crazy color that was on clearance, and just go with the flow because WHAT we make of this life, the LOVE we show others, the OPPORTUNITIES we take and the CONNECTIONS we make~THOSE are really what we’ve got going on.
