Letting go...

Life has been hectic this week.

I like how on Monday, I was like..."boo...Im bored, seems too slow, whine whine whine..." and now Im wishing I had even the tiniest amount of time to sit down and write. I've been super busy at work, which is awesome for my business, but wrecks havoc on my social life. (and by social life I really mean its preventing me from watching my trashy DVR'd television shows! I mean, if im not there to watch 90210, they might cancel it, and then what would I do??) So ya, Im just kinda short on free time. But the upside of all this, is I have done some really fun hair stuff this week, which always makes me so motivated to do more! I love when I have days where the cuts just work, the color is spot on, the styling fits the person and the energy just flows.

And here is where I get metamorphic-al on ya....

I thought "Letting Go" was an appropriate title for this blog. In case you haven't figured this out about me by now, I tend to find parallels between what is going on in my personal life and what is going on in my work life. This week is no exception. As you know, the "big cut" was this week. (which I will get to, I promise) What I didn't know was that I had another client booked yesterday who also decided to cut off most of her hair. Two people in the same day that were "Letting go" of their hair. Their reasons were very different, but the emotions of shedding their security were very much the same. And the interesting thing was, after they both made drastic changes, and let go of their hair, they both exuded confidence. The both naturally owned their new look, as if it was how it was meant to be. As if all that hair was somehow weighing down who they were 'supposed' to be. I know that sounds really strange, I know you are thinking, "Its just hair Casey, its not that deep", but I swear, I saw it with my own eyes, and it was really an unbelievable transformation. Wanna see??

I was recently in contact with someone that I knew years ago, in another place, in another time, who brought something to my attention. I was told that I was happy. Just calmly, naturally, happy. Something I really never had been before, and I just seemed content. Hmmm...I too have noticed this, but I never really thought about the reasoning behind it. Then I realized something that I now do that I was never able to do before. I let go. I let go of past resentment, heartaches, hurts, betrayals. I let go of the things I cannot control, or the things I bear no responsibility for. I freed up all of this space inside me to let the good in, and now I am the person I was truly meant to be. Its an amazing feeling when you meet someone who opens up your eyes and makes you see the good there is in life and the benefits of letting go. I am truly lucky.

One of my clients donated her hair to Locks Of Love . Just click on their name and see what an inspiration they were to her, and how you too can make a difference in someone else's life. Are you ready or willing to Let Go?



  1. Well said! Not many people embrace letting go, but as you have learned, it does free you to be naturally happy! Gale

  2. Two cute cuts, Casey! they look lovely, and what a great thing to donate to Locks of Love. My young niece did that. She went from hair down her back to a short boy cut. Took alot of guts, but she did it!
