I am Finally Doing It!
Hi Everyone, Yvonne Heath here.
I am sitting in a beautiful park in downtown Huntsville.
Just having a moment. It is absolutely gorgeous; look at this background. Look at the beautiful trees, the grass, the water in the background.
We are fortunate to live here. I’m going to make my exciting announcement. Many have gone before me and I admired them.
I wasn’t ready to do it myself. And recently in this “Covidness” I decided
to take the plunge. And…I’m going gray. All-the-way!
No more blonde dye. I don’t know, it just hadn’t occurred to me to
stop dying my hair. I had done it for so long, that it was just a part
of who I was. In this “Covidness”, I decided to kind of be brave. “ I wonder what it will be like?” I got the clippers out, chose number 7 and went low. (laughing). And you know what? I am just going to embrace my gray!
Don’t panic, everyone. I am not telling you (that) you need to embrace your gray. I have had a few people say (sharp inhale) “I’m not ready
to do this!” And that is okay. Everybody has their own journey. I can tell you, for me, it’s been very liberating. Of course, my hair is only half
an inch long, so it isn’t that drastic a change. And there will be people who like it, some people that don’t. Some people that love it. And you know, that’s okay. Because whatever they think is none of my business.
~~So, if you love it, feel free to tell me. If you don’t, you can just
mumble under your breath and just smile. I am so excited and
celebrating that I am going gray all the way. Like I said, it is very liberating. I am going to go enjoy this wonderful day. I know that my children haven’t seen it yet. I know that I might get some looks.
And that’s okay. I am going to embrace the gray. Thanks everyone.
Have a great day!

Interesting!! My wife, Grace, made the same decision within the last couple of months. She now has embraced her gray...and you know what, I think it's great!! Life is real, life is earnest...why hide the fact of your wisdom as displayed so readily atop of your head---in my opinion!! Gary
8/13/2020 12:11:37 pm
Love that Gary and good for your wife. So true; our grey, our wrinkles, our age... all show our years of living, loving and of course great wisdom. haha!

Looks wonderful! I was not ready but as you said it is an individual decision. I think every woman knows when it is time!
8/13/2020 12:13:10 pm
Absolutely. I judge no one. The only person that gets to make that choice for themselves is themselves!! And thank you for saying it looks wonderful. It's about 10 different shades of many colours. haha!

Yes indeed. It is all beautiful. We are all beautiful no matter what colour our hair is, no matter what colour our skin is... no matter what!!!

Ah, Yvonne, you are such a beautiful person - blonde hair, grey hair, no hair - you'd still be marvelous! I'm all for natural, although I do color - but always fun colors purples blues greens . . . I think grey is awesome
