Yesterday I posted an update on my 2012 goals, and I didn't realize how much not making a goal bothered me. I made most goals and excelled at many but one goal had no progress: Keep up with hair cuts quarterly. This morning Chris was cutting his hair and asked for me to do the back for him.
I thought well if he is cutting his own hair why not me? My friend Liz had cut her own hair a couple months ago and I couldn't tell she didn't go and pay someone to cut it. I had this phrase stuck in my head from one the motivational books I read last month, "Losers make excuses, Winners make a way." Am I not more than a conqueror through Christ, Can I not do all things through Christ? I had just gotten out of the shower with freshly washed hair, the kids were still in bed and the scissors in Chris' clipper kit were just too tempting..... I was thinking of watching a youtube tutorial first but it was almost time to start the day with the kids; so I just went at it. I combed my hair and then cut off about 3 inches and layered some around my face.
I am really surprised that it does not look bad at all! Hair cuts for me are around $30-$40
( because I have long hair?) plus tax and tip $50! Chris' hair cut is usually $10 plus tax and tip $16! Also the last time we both got our hair cut we did not like the job that was done and lost money! So I figured we saved at least $60 this morning and any bitter feelings toward a hair cutter. I wonder if there are any more people out there who cut their own hair?
