Living Life Uncombed

This morning when I looked in the mirror, my hair was looking roughhhhh.  It looked as if I hadn’t combed it in days.. maybe I hadn’t, but that’s really not the point.  Today I learned that in order to be true to yourself, we should live life uncombed.

All too often we let ourselves become completely enwrapped in something.  It could be a relationship, college, a job, straight A’s, the future, the number of followers we have on Instagram, our appearance. These things, these desires consume us.  And unfortunately, we let them define us.

We strive for this ideal of “perfect”.  Why?

Study.  Wear this.  Get good grades.  Glamour.  Workout.  Eat healthy.  Make a lot of money.  Buy this.  Not that.  Do this.  Comb your hair.

But in our attempt, we lose sight of what’s important, and sometimes we can lose sight of who we are, and what makes us shine. Knowing and unknowingly we put up this camouflage. 

I think it’s our actions, and what makes us beamingly happy, that should define us.

Travel.  Fall in love.  Sing.  Hug a lot.  Kiss even more.  Give back.  Drink wine.  Pray.  Dance.  Eat ice cream.  Laugh.  Make a difference.  (Wear camo sweats.)

Life occurs and our hair becomes uncombed. And that’s how it should be.

In good faith,
