Back to My Roots

Ironic, isn't it? That dyeing my hair has inspired/reminded me to return to my true colors.

This isn't going to be a wishful post, and I'm so proud to say that. I'm not going to whine about the way I used to be, and bemoan the fact that I'm not that way anymore. I'm going to tell you how I AM, and therefore how I AM going to be.

I am going to wear eyeliner again, because I am bold and unique.
I am going to write more, because I'm good at it and it makes me happy.
I am going to take my time when I speak, because my thoughts are worth saying well.
I have complicated tastes, so I am going to feel equally good in Converse and heels.
I am going to wear rings, because they're my favorite piece of jewelry.
I am going to avoid soda, because I'm stubborn and I say so.
I have nothing to hide, so I am going to make eye contact more often.
I am going to sieze new words, because they fuel my soul.
I am going to know God, because he wants to know me.
I am going to drink in languages, because I love to learn.
I am going to spend less time with screens, because the real world is worth investing in.
I am going to love green, because it's the color of new life and Go lights.
I am going to write these down and tape them where I can see.

I'm tired of not feeling right. We're always told to be ourselves, but no one tells you who that is. I'm pretty sure of the things on that list, so I'm going to try to live by them for a while and just see what happens.


P.S. More pictures in the page next to Awards.


  1. OMG I love your hair! You are sooo pretty. And you look awesome with eyeliner. I think you and I are quite similar in our tastes, we both like rings and eyeliner and converse + heels!

  2. I need to work more on being myself. You inspire me.

    PS. I also like you hair! :)

  3. Furree: Aw, thank you :) That really lifts my spirits. I've always thought you were absolutely gorgeous. I do love eyeliner, and your blog, so I think you're right. Lots in common.

    Alana: :D Thanks!

    Elizabeth: Thank you! It's always incredibly humbling and exciting when someone says I inspire them.
