Girls Write Out
Thursday, May 10, 2012

First off, I want to thank you for your prayers and rejoicing with me over what the Lord has done and is doing in my life! I praise Him for His grace and mercy!!

Now, on to the matter of my hair . . .  I am getting it colored and cut (well, shaped really, it's not long enough to cut!) next week.  I can hardly wait. 

Here's the deal. It's about three inches long and it's starting to fill in.  Do I dare go out in public with my own hair after it's colored and cut or should I wait a few months until it fills in more?  I've been wearing a hat in public (so tired of wigs!), so I can continue to do that--and probably will since vanity sometimes takes over--but I was curious as to your opinions.

What would you do if it were YOU?  Would you be brave and go out like that or would you continue to wear a hat or wig when you went out?

Well i saw this woman at the grocery
store, I should not assume but it her
hair was extremely short so i thought
maybe it was growing back in, I thought she looked beautiful. I think i would try it but i have had my hair
short most of my life and have had
it cut by accident extremely short for me. I think also if the wigs are
so uncomfortable i would give it try. Good luck friend...

Having been in a similar situation, I would show off my own hair - as a testimony of God's goodness! :)

(Personally, I would hold off getting it colored, though. Since it's not in fully, you will be constantly coloring it to compete with the newly growing hair. (not to mention the roots...))

Absolutely wear it! A colleague of mine went through the exact same fight. She always had gorgeous long flowing hair but now we've come to love her short curls because they symbolize her triumph over adversity.

Okay, Di, minority viewpoint here. If you think you're going to feel uncomfortable going into public sporting your own hair, then don't. Do what makes you feel most comfortable. You have enough to deal with as you continue to feel better and better, especially seeing acquaintances who, unless you wear a tee shirt that says in big letters I'M CANCER FREE!!!! might make you feel uncomfortable without meaning to. But you really do look darling with short hair.

Yeah it depends on how you feel about it but I would go ahead with the short.

It's important to feel comfortable and not stress yourself, but if you're feeling a bit bold, then go for it. After all, you are a treasure and God will walk with you each step of the way. Often we're more critical of ourselves than others are and tend to shortchange ourselves when we really look just fine. I think you're beautiful.

God is so good- how awesome to be at the place where you can think about styling & coloring your very own hair! :) Do what enhances your joy, whichever that may be for you.

Diann, I am praising the Lord for your good news! IMHO, wear it as a testimony to His grace :)
Hugs & blessings!

I'm so happy for you!! Yay!

I agree with the comments above - but think you should do whatever strikes you that day. Hair, hat, wig, scarf... Big earrings! Head band? A flower tucked behind your ear?

Or you could come up with some new creative options like: Hat + wig, hair + scarf, scarf + hat... I'm being silly, of course - but it's time to throw caution to the winds and dance and sing! Yay, Diann! Yay, God!
