Presence of mind
Clarity of thought
I know who I am
For I see who I’m not
While in the hair salon the other day, my awesome stylist, who has been cutting and coloring my hair for over a decade, commented that the past few times I’ve been in, she’s noticed that I seem much more calm and at ease. I smiled and, with only a slight hesitation, the little poem above formulated in my mind as I said the words slowly, then gave her a hug.
She’s seen me go through a lot of … ups and downs (including my blue and purple hair phases) and has always been sincere during the downs and quick to laugh in the ups. I so appreciate her!
