The overthinker

I am over it. I am over overthinking. Thinking about my hair and a cut – or maybe not?

I wrote a novel. And I am not talking about “Wer ist Jakob Winter” here. Unfortunately not. I wrote a novel article about my ongoing thougts about whether I should or should not cut my hair. About what my hair is and what it can be – and what it can’t. What I want it to be which is not possible: being very long and thick or at least no longer thin. I wrote about this dilemma many longhaired ladies go through after some years of growing  when for some of them   – like me – it becomes more an more obvious that dream and reality don’t match and probably won’t ever do. I wrote about patience and care, about hope and waiting and years passing by and so so many thoughts in my head. And I wrote about wanting to be the best me. Not a version of me that might be better one day, but now. I wrote about the whish to be positive and therefore do the best for me and my hair I can: loving it for what it is without envy, without longing for somebody else’s hair identity. I am the one who loves the colour seasons and body types as they help to make life easier and more beautiful, a better version of each of us in a very simple way. And I wrote about finally being fed up with waiting for something which might never happen to me: a real Rapunzel’s mane. About looking at myself in the mirror, mild and friendly and just accepting that for now my dream of long and healthy hair is again just a dream. I did not kill this wish, I just brought it to sleep for the next years until maybe my hair will have grown down thick and healthyly  – or not and then I finally have a hairstyle doing the best for me it can. I also wrote about you, who I was afraid to lose, if I decided to cut. But now I am shure that you will stay, because you reflect what my blog already became. Haselnussblond is by far more than only hair, my topics are deeper and smarter than that and so are you. You are always loyal, friendly, communicative and well yes, just my community which I appreciate so much. And so finally I did it. I cut. And it feels free, what is the best my hair can do for me at the moment.

Let go of what no longer serves you.

So my hair might no longer be special in any sense. But I am a confident and positive woman my smile does not depend on my hair.  But of course I will smile widely if I ever can come back of my dream to tailbone length. Maybe. Who knows? I don’t and so I worked with what I see and know and am happy to finally finally have hair which does the best for me it can. No thinned lengths, no hairloss leftovers, no curling iron damage, just my silky fine hair with an even volume and the colour I love. Me. And free. 😀

Babybump week 7, 8 or 9. – What? Aha!

10 days have passend and it is definitely time for an update as so much happened!

Indeed, it was only 10 days ago that I told you that I was pregnant. And here I am with a GIANT update in German, which I will cut short a bit in English just so save time, because… Giant update. Really.

Hairlength in January 2017: 90cm

90 is the new meter! Combination: – Heiki cut her hair

Indeed. And it was overdue. Unfortunately. A little. Because that my hair needed a cut so badly was mostly because I curled it twice with my curling iron. My dear Luise can curl her hair occasionally with her straightener without damaging her mane significantly, so I thought maybe I could do so too…? But no, my hair is not Luise’s hair and also not comparable to the manes of other ladies I admire on Instagram. Do you know @sarahannabella ? Oh my gosh, she is almost unreal… Bleached and curled hair on such a length. This is something my own hair smiles about mildly – before it breaks off.

For real? – 2017 is going to be amazing! And definitely different.

My dearest friends! What a year! There were times when I just thought that it could not get any worse. But now with the change of numbers I am all with Oscar Wilde:
Everything is going to be fine in the end. If it’s not fine it’s not the end.

There is so much I wanted to blog about! A 2016 review (which you get today in pictures further downwards), 2017 preview and resolutions and of course I wanted to check my New Year’s Resolutions from last year. There were articles I wanted to share with you, which made me think about mindset and positivity. But basically I am sitting here, in front of my Mac, all smiling and still I can’t really believe what I am about to share with you. Because I just did not expect this to happen. At least not that quickly.  What do people say:

Happiness is reality minus expectations.
