Over the past four years, I have amassed a fair sized collection of hair jewelry and hair accessories.
From time to time they tend to wander. I do have a special spot for each and every hair stick, barrette, hair clip and hair fork, but from time to time I get lazy when I undo my hair and I put my hair accessories in a “safe place”. Apparently the place is so safe that even I can’t find it.
I am in that world of lost hair accessories today. I was looking for a lovely pair of Mei Fa hairstyx that I really wanted to wear, and they are not with my hair stick collection. What’s worse, is that the other pair that I got at the same time is missing as well. Clearly, I put them somewhere for safe keeping, and I played a joke on myself and forgot where that somewhere is.
I decided to look through my collections, and I realize that I am also missing a much loved barrette and hair fork.
The Mei Fas are irreplaceable, as they are no longer to be found in that size and style. Aside from that, I can’t afford to replace them.
The barrette and fork are replaceable, but again, I am not shelling out good money for something that I am quite sure is somewhere in this house. But where?
I looked in all of the likely places and even some very unlikely places. All to no avail.
Now, I have to admit that I do have many other lovely hair sticks, barrettes and forks, but these missing items are eating away at me. What’s worse is that I now realize that they must have been missing for quite a long time before I noticed that they aren’t where I thought they were.
This makes it even more problematic, because who knows what I may have surrounded them with after putting them somewhere for safe keeping. I may have a year’s worth of items camouflaging them more than they already were.
So okay. Lesson learned. No matter how tired I am at night, or no matter how much of a hurry I may be in, I must remember to put any and all hair accessories in one place and one place only, if I can’t put them in their proper home.
I don’t know why I’m so upset about this today, but it’s driving me mad. I think hormones may be at play here, but it really doesn’t matter. I don’t need this aggravation that I clearly caused myself.
Well, I’m going to do some activities to distract myself from this obsession I’ve had today about these missing items. And I have to remember that one day, when I least expect it, they’ll turn up.
Tomorrow I hope to have a new tutorial for you. It’s an easy but elegant protective style. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I don’t want to have to come here tomorrow as I did on Friday and say that I can’t make a style work yet again.
Now, I’m just going to breathe deeply, relax and perhaps another movie is in order. It really did the trick the other day.
Love to all!
