Blue Hair and Hazel Eyes

So it’s obvious that last night was rough.  One of the things I like to do when I get in that state of mind is make a change.  It can be anything from adding a sticker to the cover of a notebook to rearranging my CDs … or even coloring my hair blue.

I’m staring at you. Do you feel watched? 😉

 

I’m not sure how long this will last; I’m already considering a bluish-black as my next color choice.  But for the moment I’ve decided I don’t mind standing out and am happy to be the girl in blue.  The downside to doing this is that my tub still looks like I murdered several smurfs.  There is a LOT of scrubbing in my future.  Sigh.

On a more serious note, thank you for reading last night’s post and for liking/commenting.  I know it isn’t easy to find a way to respond to a post like that and I am so appreciative of the bravery you showed in doing so.  You also taught me something, which is that it’s okay to express my emotions, even when they aren’t easy.  I’ve decided that my philosophy for the rest of this holiday season is to express, not repress.  This year, I’m going to do something new:  I’m going to let myself feel through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.  I’m going to tell myself that I can handle it and see how it all shakes out.

Welcome to December!

        A great and wonderful “wow” — let our freak flags fly =) — and wishing on all these suddenly falling stars I could see it all! And I’m not afraid of the dark — one doesn’t have to be afraid of things that go bump in the night if one becomes the thing that lurks in the darkness.

    1. oh my, that set my heart fluttering … it’s hard to find someone else who is unafraid of the dark.

      as for the compliment … not sure how to respond without putting myself down, so I will try to leave it at thank you so much!!! but trust me when I tell you, you wouldn’t be impressed if you saw it all.

    2. w o w. that is my philosophy with everyone else but for a moment there — I saw myself through your eyes. so there’s no other response I can will give than thank you very, very much. And I wish I could give you a big hug. 🙂

        I wish you could, too ❤

        [aside: all these falling stars {alas}… I move my cursor… they dance… change speed/direction… entertaining… or perhaps I'm easily amused =)]

      2. The idea of seeing things others don’t is something I’ve felt/explored my whole life, so I understand and appreciate what you’re saying. That’s one of the reasons I realized the owl is my spirit animal. 🙂 I think that we are kindred spirits in many ways and if you’re crazy, then so am I and we can revel in folie a deux. ♥

    1. I should probably state that no smurfs were harmed in the making of this blue hair photo and I would feel really guilty if I had harmed smurfs. having said that … when I re-read what I’d written, I cracked a grin too. ♥

  1. Having worked on traveling Carnivals for thirteen years, you don’t know how often I’ve felt like murdering a smurf or two myself, so now I can live vicariously through you the next time the urge overtakes me. Lol. I love the hair, it looks even better on you than on Grandpa Smurf, and as far as letting out all those feelings, I’m another one who has a difficult time with Christmas, and most other holidays as well, so you won’t bother me if you let it all out. Just so you know. For now, take care, and I’ll read you later.

    1. LOL!! I don’t think the clean-up is worth it … ;P

      this year we have blogging, so we can connect with others and help each other get through. 🙂 Everyone asks if I have plans for the holidays, or if I have family coming, etc. and it makes me so sad. I do have family but no one I see or who even bothers with a card, except my mother. and I know how lucky I am to have her so I try to keep that foremost in my mind. but when I finally slow down for the day … I miss my dad.

      anyway, this year I’m also blessed to have friends like you, so things have already improved.
      hugs!!
