On the metro this week, I caught myself looking at the women around me.
One had gorgeous hair, the kind that is naturally thick without being annoying or triangle shaped.
(Side note: Remember when Anne Hathaway had to have triangle shaped hair for this role?)
And instead of thinking to myself, wow, she looks great, I should emulate that, or I should take notes on how she carefully crafted her look to make it look uncrafty, I thought:
Why isn’t that me?
One of my best friends, the ever-lovely Caitlin Morrison, always reminds me that comparison is only comparison, and it accomplishes nothing at all.
She gave me this quote, which I will share with all of you, just because sometimes we need a reminder, half-way through the week, that our love and compassion could be a little greater and our unhappiness and misery could be a little less, if only we allow ourselves to let go of two things.
Share your love a little more today, for yourself, and for those around you.
And next time you admire someone’s hair, tell her. It’s a great feeling to see someone else’s smile, even if you never see it again.
