The best way out is always through –Robert Frost
Hey, feisty ones!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! I love the holidays, even without religion, no one can deny the certain happiness in the air. The lights, family, and food represent a time to remember the year and begin a new one. And that’s what I’d like to talk about today. New beginnings.
A new beginning by definition is the start of something new. Excuse my Disney-Channel self, but:
“This could be the start of something new
It feels so right to be here with you, oh
And now, looking in your eyes
I feel in my heart (I feel in my heart) the start of something new
Oh, yeah” –High School Musical
I’ve been in the market for starting fresh for a while, but I couldn’t quite let go. It wasn’t until meeting a specific man and specific people that I realized it was time to move on. And like everyone else, that started with a new haircut.
Change your appearance, change your attitude. By cutting most of my hair off and getting bangs (they are a commitment), I was subsequently telling the world “Fuck YOU,” and I gave into my inner child. Keeping my priorities in check, I otherwise need to loosen the fuck up and learn to let go. I’ve consumed so much of the bullshit put in front of me, and I try to control every outcome. I will not do that anymore.
Have safe and fun holidays! Make sure to check out our cover reveal of our upcoming anthology On Fire and the author features at our newsletter, and as always, stay feisty.
