silver and peaches.

Grey's and Scandal hasn't even started for the fall, but I still think that acronym is appropriate for today, maybe thats just me and my love of acronyms.
  So, today I did something I've been debating for months and was hesitant to do due to other people's opinions. I started the process of dying my hair silver!!
 The sun brings out the blonde a little more than it should but considering what it used to be I am so excited!
 Dying my hair this colour is a big step for me. We all have our character flaws and mine is that I hate doing something if I know I don't have approval from every single person. I am a people pleaser to a fault. When I mentioned wanting to do this most people said "ew, why" "no don't" "why would you do that" and "omg please no". So I didn't. Instead I pinterest searched this colour and just wished for it to grow without me having to make a decision.
Although a hair colour isn't that big of a deal it is just an example of how I was a couple months ago, living my life to make the people closest to me happy and avoid anything that wasn't exactly what they wanted.
Living your life for other people is an easy way to live a half life. A couple things have changed since then and I am working hard to find myself outside of other people's expectations of me. Change is hard. Losing yourself in order to be what someone else needs is hard. But I promise, finding yourself is worth it.
(grey hair, don't care??)
You could be the juiciest, ripest peach in the world, but there's still going to be someone who doesn't like peaches.
