My Sparkle Crown

My sparkle crown is continuing to get longer by the day!  Some days I'm ok with it, others, not so much!
It does look pretty cool in certain light.  It really sparkles!

Then I have a ton of these crazy small hairs sprouting out of my sparkle crown line.  I'm sure that's a good sign and once they get long enough to lay down, i will be much happier!

I am loving all the groups on Facebook geared to going grey.  It really helps to see all the pictures of the different transitions and hear the stories.
Well, sparkle on!!

Don't try to LOOK young...

We are always told to look our best, don't age, dress young, be young, but I have always felt that age is just a number.  With every birthday I am blessed to have I realize more and more that age doesn't matter.  What matters is that you love.  You love your family, you love your children and their children and you learn to accept and love yourself!  It finally happens.  You love yourself.  And hopefully it doesn't take you years and years to accomplish that very important part of living.  I am hoping to live to at least 100!  That is my goal.  It could happen!  My great grandmother lived to be 108.  So I know it's possible.

Getting Real...Going Gray

Gray hair runs in the fam!  I started seeing those white silver sparkle strands when I was a
teenager.  I don't remember when I started dying my hair, but I don't think it was to cover up the sparkle, I think it was just to dye it.  I think I thought it was what you were SUPPOSED to do.  Wasn't it?  Aren't we supposed to do whatever makes us look young?  Isn't that what everyone else does?  Face lifts, botox, boob implants, etc.  So I guess I fell into that rut.  I have always been told I "Don't Look Old enough, for the 4 kids I have, or for the 7 grandkids, I have, or on and on."  I think I have always looked my age, however that's supposed to look?  I am actually surprised I have made it to 57!  And dam those years flew right by!  I don't understand where they went!  Anyway, I have finally decided that I am tired of looking like I dye my hair, especially the few days right after, "I've dyed my hair".  It just doesn't look right!  It looks too dark and dyed.  Not to mention the mess it makes and the chemicals I am dumping onto my brain every two to three weeks!  I have tried this avenue twice before and didn't make it.  I feel like everyone is staring at my roots even after only 3 weeks, never mind 3 months worth of roots!  But, this time I am going to do this!  It's time to be the real ME! Dam it!  I mean really at 57 I think I have waited to long already!  But as they say "It's better late than never" or "It's never too late to start".  So here I go on this crazy journey.  I hope I love it.  I hope I stick to it.  I know the real me is already here but I want my outside to really show it!
