This is in my bathroom. It takes a lot of equipment to put myself together above the neck. Hair dryer, a flat iron, and a couple different size curling irons are some of the weapons I use to keep this thinning perimenopausal hair from looking like Gary Busey.
It’s a wrestling match until I unplug them all start over. Then it feels easy again. Frustration is gone, simple and effective.
I think about how unplugging keeps all of life simple and more effective.
So many voices screaming for attention; political, cultural and spiritual.
“You should do this.”
“You should believe that.”
What do you need to unplug? A group, a relationship, a vice that tangles your emotions? When the result of an action or relationship brings confusion and frustration, it probably needs to be unplugged from your life. Maybe for a season, possibly longer.
You’re a big girl now, you don’t have to do what the voices tell you.
Instead of the frustrating wrestling match, try unplugging and making it simple again…
A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life.
