To Be Grey or Not To Be Grey, That Is The Question

To Be Grey or Not To Be Grey, That Is The Question

My head is covered with streaks of natural highlighted grey hair cascading past my shoulders. And it doesn’t bother me, in fact, I kinda like it. But from time to time my colleagues at work, will corner me and begin the barrage of questions or give me unsolicited advice (as though it’s some kind of disease that needs to be cut off at the root).

For example, “When do you plan on coloring that hair or what’s taking you so long to color your hair?, while shooting obvious glances in the direction of my head and then piercing stares right back at me, as if to say you know what I’m talking about. “You’d look much younger without the grey or my favorite, “Just because you’re getting older, doesn’t mean the whole world has to know, keep them guessing”.

And every time when placed in this position, I always chuckle to myself, contemplating, ” I’m in no hurry to color my hair when I’m ready I’ll dye it”. The honest truth is, if I can be candid for a moment, I’m just too lazy or just not in the mood, no pun intended, my hair grows very fast, you see. I am one of those women who embrace my grey, every single strand of it.

Grey hair woman power, away…. it always seems to amuses me to hear certain people offer advice as to why I should dye my hair and eradicate all my beautiful salt and pepper or silvery grey hair as if it’s some sort of crime. (To the dungeon I say, throw away the key until she comes to her senses).

It’s incredible to think how many people are afraid of aging. Thank God for those of us who take life one moment at a time and just embrace the aging process gracefully. I highly doubt this is an isolated incident. It’s funny to think, how much a woman is judged based on her physical appearance compared to men in today’s society.

When a woman has salt and pepper hair, most of us are frowned upon while the opposite holds true for men, they are considered distinguished, some are even considered sexy with just the right amount of grey on their head or in their beard. One of the beauties of being 50 plus, is reaching this plateau of coming into yourself and accepting what we cannot change and change what we can, regardless as to what others may say.

For some of us, we are at a stage in our lives where we are comfortable in the body we are in, grey hair and all. For those of you who are not there yet, it’s a freeing experience. In no way am I suggesting not to color your hair, what I am saying is, color your hair if you choose to, but do it for you and not for others, do what makes you feel good and wear it proud. We owe this to ourselves.

Accepting All The Changes and Still Loving Me

Accepting All The Changes and Still Loving Me

As I stand here looking at myself in the mirror, I’m not sure if I fully recognize the woman I see staring back at me.  Boy! how I’ve changed.  Now, I can either pick out all the features of yesterday and compare myself to how I use to look or I could really pay attention to the beautiful woman staring back at me.  You see, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and that beholder begins with me.  How can I expect for someone else to see the beauty in me if you can’t even see it myself.

This is the body I was blessed with, with all its little imperfections. But you know what? I  wear it well.  There is so much to be thankful for.  There are the times when I choose not to see what is standing right in front of me, but the beautiful thing is, there are always angels surrounding me, showing me, helping me, reminding me in human flesh that everything will be OK and that in itself is a blessing.

Life holds no promises.  Once we can really understand that realization, only then can go out there and claim what is rightfully ours. Everything is out there for us. We are the ones who hold on to the doubts, the fears, the lack thereof and the limitations.  It is so easy to be afraid and yet so challenging to just let it flow.  Let me repeat that it again, “let it  FLOW” you’d think the opposite would hold true and it does.  Life is full of so many possibilities, promises, so many hopes and so many dreams.  No matter the age you never stop dreaming.

No need to compare yourself to other women, we’re all sisters, makes no difference of color or creed, each one of us is unique in our own way. If you wrote a book, sang a song, told a story, prepared a meal, designed an outfit, performed a surgery, delivered a speech, raised a family, etc. no one on planet earth could have had done quite like you even if they did they exact same thing.  There is only One You and this was not by chance. So appreciate that which you are.

Why is it so easy to focus on the negatives as opposed to the positive? Why are we as human beings so easily drawn to the flaws instead of seeing the beauty and Wow! there is so much beauty to see, feel, touch and experience. We’ve made it this far. And there is still so much to see and experience in this place called life.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, feel the air as it pulsates through your heart, through your lungs, down to your stomach, through each and every single cell within your body, feel the breathe of life as it caresses every inch of your internal organs and know you are truly blessed and loved.  You are an unique being and that alone should allow you to take note that is SPECIAL and you were by no means an accident.  There is so much more to see on this life’s journey.  It’s time to really enjoy and be happy take it all in.  No one can do this for you and no one was meant to do this for you, but they can share in your joy and happiness with you.  It all begins with you..
