Adorned with Silver

finding the courage to go gray


I am beginning this blog about a month shy of my 48th birthday.  I have been agonizing about when I should “go gray” for at least 10 years.  I came across a website by accident (if there is such a thing) that made me realize that I am not the only one agonizing over this decision.  We are in the process of moving to the country and completely changing our lifestyle.  When I considered that it would take me an hour and a half to go to my hairdresser, and hour and a half back, an hour and a half cutting and coloring and $80 poorer, it seemed to me this was the time to take the leap.

Honestly, it is a journey I fear.  Getting honest with yourself is always hard.  I hope that the reward will be a peace with myself and who I am becoming.  I would like to be more focused on my inner beauty and others’ inner beauty than I have been for most of my adult life.  I would like my children, but especially my daughter to not waste as much time as I have worrying about how they look to other people.  Not that I don’t think that’s important and I am certainly not an advocate of frumpiness or sloppiness.  I aspire to a “classy honesty” and that is what I want for them, too.
