FIRST POSITIVE COMMENT ON MY HAIR!!!
The first comment coming from a stranger really stuck with me as well. It's such an amazing feeling when you think you just look like a mess, and in reality the changes are quite beautiful and noticeable to those around us. I was listening to some live music about 5 weeks after neglecting my hair, in a rather large crowd, a guy sort of yelled, "awesome dreads" I just stared for a minute and pointed to myself, confused. I really didn't think it was noticeable at all. Ah the simple pleasures of letting go :]
