On Going Gray and Fading Away

Alexainie I’ve only just started to recognise the person staring back at me (for the first time ever) and I think a big part of that is that I’m finally learning to accept and love all the bits of me.

I never ever thought I’d get used to this ‘other’ new natural of mine. I missed my brunette for so long that I’ve completely forgotten what that looked like in the mirror.

Do whatever you need to do. You are the only one whose reaction matters.
