So I am writing this blog from a hairdressing salon. I recently realized that I have really neglected myself from an aesthetic point of view and suddenly I am feeling very frumpy. This is a new feeling for me and I guess it is another side effect of the infertility journey… All my focus is on what is going on inside of me and I have had no energy for worrying about the outside. But suddenly I am sick and tired of feeling like this. I am only 35 for goodness sake and need to reclaim some of my former vibrancy.
So, today I am coloring out the greys that have crept in and I am going for a shorter, funkier look (which I hope to goodness I don’t regret… I am not traditionally very adventurous when it comes to my hair and I kind of pride myself on my hair which is nice and thick and long). When I get home, I will shave my legs and give myself a pedicure. Tonight my husband and I are going to the theatre and I will put on a nice dress and apply some make up. Small things, but it worries me how far removed from my former self I feel at times, and this aspect of ‘letting myself go’ is one of them.
