You guys are probably thinking that she is so badly out of ideas that now she will tell us about her haircut. Daym!
Well this isn’t about my general visit to the hairdresser but a haircut that really changed me. Still sounds boring I know… Stick around and it gets better. Believe me!
So a few years ago, I went to have a haircut and at this point I used to have beautiful long hair that I absolutely loved.
But as anyone who has ever been to a hairdresser knows that things hardly ever go right. In this visit things went horribly wrong. We were chatting and she was cutting my hair and I had said I wanted like a few centimetres off and just a clean up. (Question: do hairdressers not understand the metric system?)
So she is cutting my hair and my eyes are closed as I am chilling and I hear her say finished after what felt like forever for a quick trim. I open my eyes and…
I cried that night because now I looked so stupid and my hair was a mess and according to the 17 year old Nabeeda that meant her life was a mess. The next day I had an important meeting and I was all MEH about everything.
But over the next few weeks I noticed something. I went from feeling like Willy Wonka to a confident girl. My friends noticed that I was more carefree and just really out there with things. I realised that when cutting the hair I hadn’t just cut hair but a weight of my shoulders and I felt lighter.
Now if the haircut had gone as planned things would have been the same. But things messed up so things could change and I could change.
Moral of the story: Things will go wrong because that is life but it is important to remember that things happen for a reason so just wait for it.
