I still give occasional haircuts and I am thankful for the few I do a month. Sally is about to come over and she is by far one of my easiest clients to please. I do what i do and she always thinks it's awesome. I love those kind of people!
I quit working at the salon after i got married and i have never regretted it. One of the older stylists said "you're committing career suicide." I may have committed career suicide but what i really did was give myself the opportunity to try new things and learn more about myself. I loved hair school. It was like a long slumber party where we fixed each others hair and painted nails all day long(however i don't miss waxing men's backs and giving pedicures). I loved getting to do crazy punky color and cuts on friends but it's not like that at all when you get into the real world of working full time in a salon. I quickly realized i had gotten myself into a career that didn't suit my personality despite it fitting my skills.
I wrestled a long time with guilt. asking why God would give me skills for something but not a passion or desire to do that thing. I use to be scared that God would somehow force me into doing it again-yes-i disliked it that much. It makes me laugh to think that is how i felt because now that i know more about God i know that is not how he works.
There really is no real point to this post except to say that i have the time to post and this is what i am thinking about.
have a great evening!
PS-My friend Laura just had her 2nd baby and i am so excited for her.
