Each year, I generally do a weird thing as a New Years Resolution of sorts. For 2014, I wanted to grow in wisdom over my spending, so I resolved to cut the number of books and movies I buy each year down to 1 per a season. I actually didn't end up buying any movies in 2014. I rented most of them or watched them online or borrowed them from the library. And I only ended up buying four books (I don't count textbooks for college). Everything else was either borrowed, from the library or friends, or I just read what I already owned. It was pretty freeing! But that's a topic for a different day.
For 2015, I decided that I'm going to go a year without dying my hair, which is HUGE for me. I really enjoy dying my hair, and I've dyed my hair since I was a junior in high school. My hair has been the entire spectrum - a light strawberry blonde, bright red, warm brown, dark brown, ashy black, dark reddish brown. My hair has been primarily red though, and I guess it's because my hair really picks up red tones. Despite the belief of many people, I'm not really a red head.
In fact, I've dyed my hair so much that I don't really know what my natural hair even looks like. So for 2015, I'm fearlessly going back to my roots (literally).
Now, I'm not doing this for a pious or a holy reason (although I'm sure there is a lesson to learn). Primarily, I just want to see what my hair looks like naturally, even if it means a few awkward months where my hair is two colors.
On the plus side, I'm going to save a lot money by not dying my hair all the time.
So here it goes, a year without hair dye!
Anyone else want to join me?
For your enjoyment, here are some of the various shades my hair has been:
This is my quirky resolution. Look forward for my more serious resolution soon, or rather how I would like to grow in 2015.
Shalom! I'm Madi, a laughter-loving, movie-going, spontaneous-dancing, follower of Christ. Join me as I seek glimpses of God's grace in the ordinary and everyday.
