The miracle of the salon and the energy of girlfriends!

It has always amazed me how good you feel after getting even a simple haircut, sometimes even just getting your hair washed when you are sick. But yesterday I spent 2 1/2 hours with my hair stylist (I love Mark) getting my hair done- yes I admit, my red is no longer mine, it comes from a bottle, but I know that originally I am a true red head! Anyway, getting to hear the other chaos going on, hearing about his family- his wife will be starting back to school next semester to get her pre-req's done for nursing- talking about just life in general. I felt normal again yesterday, I loved it- for those 2 1/2 hours I wasn't crazy me, I was normal me, no anxiety, nothing. Salons and spas have magical powers you should all try them at least once in awhile, that should be a prescription from the psychiatrist and covered by insurance- but let's not go there- I am in a happy place. :)

Then after having a wonderful afternoon (not wearing my brace at all by the way- my wrist is feeling much better- still sore, but not like it was.), I spent the evening with my Circle of Girlfriends- and one that had not been able to come because of scheduling conflicts was there- we were missing one physically (because she is in Seattle for I am sure a beautiful wedding) but she was there in spirit! So very soon all 7 of us will be together for an 'event' and will be so full of energy! We made so many plans for the future it was amazing to do that, to look forward to the future with so many hopes and not be afraid.
No I am not looking at in ways of going back to work- that still terrifies me greatly- nursing I mean. But also I usually don't make it through family functions without an anxiety attack- so we'll see what happens today at the fair. But last night with my circle I felt normal for the first time in months- I did cry, because it was also the first time I felt like I used to, like a normal human- like the old Sara. I loved it! I hope it continues and continues..........
