Tomorrow we might awake on the other side

So it’s time for the hair to come off. It’s bugging me now. I daren’t touch it as every time I do I get a shoulder-full.

I would have thought getting someone to strim all your hair off would be quite an easy job but finding a hairdresser who’s available when I am seems to be trickier than expected! And I daren’t do it myself – not because that wouldn’t yield hilarious results and probably keep me giggling for an hour, but more because I’ll probably make a mess everywhere and my hair is already getting into EVERYTHING as it is! 🙂

I had a lovely message through from my sister, who’s one of about 4 followers to this blog… she said:

“You are beautiful, inside and out. It is no coincidence that people say you remind them of famous beautiful people… Christina Ricci and Katy Perry to name two… So you’re gonna look like Sigourney Weaver for a while, that can’t be bad either! Try and remember that the next time you look in a mirror. (Though maybe don’t go as far as picturing an alien busting out of your belly!) Xxxxx”

She’s been reading my other post about my hair loss.

Now, obviously she’s just being lovely, but that made me think of this song, which always makes me cry… (and sometimes when you’re feeling grumpy that’s a good thing!)  🙂

Everyday is so wonderful, then suddenly, It’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure… from all the pain, I’m so ashamed
I am beautiful, no matter what they say, Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful, In every single way, Yes words can’t bring me down
Oh no. So don’t you bring me down today

To all your friends you’re delirious, So consumed in all your doom, ooh
Trying hard to fill the emptiness,
The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone. (Ain’t that the way it is)

You are beautiful, No matter what they say;
Words can’t bring you down, Oh no,
You are beautiful, in every single way.
Yes words can’t bring you down, Oh no,
So don’t you bring me down today.

No matter what we do (No matter what we do),
No matter what we say (No matter what we say)
We’re the song inside the tune (Yeah, oh yeah), Full of beautiful mistakes
And everywhere we go (And everywhere we go),
The sun will always shine (The sun will always, always, shine)
And tomorrow we might awake, On the other side

We are beautiful, no matter what they say
Yes words won’t bring us down, Oh no
We are beautiful, in every single way
Yes words can’t bring us down, Oh no
So don’t you bring me down today.

“You are beautiful” by Linda Perry, sung by Christina Aguilera
