Over the past couple of years, I have gone through a whirlwind of changes. From moving to NYC to Hendrix’s birth & the past 15 months of his life, I have changed so much as an individual & as a mother. While change can be difficult at times (especially for the anxious type like myself), I’ve learned to embrace it over the years & a simple change of mindset has helped me grow so much.
When I heard about the Herbal Essences ‘Changes’ campaign, I immediately knew I wanted to be apart of it! One, because who doesn’t love Herbal Essences products!? & Two, because I have had the craziest change in my hair after having Hendrix & as silly as it might sound, these changes (baby AND hair) have completely changed my mindset on life. Honestly, when I first watched the Herbal Essences Changes Video I started to tear up because it’s so inspiring to see people have the courage to make a change. It’s incredible how freeing change can be!
Having a baby is a big change both mentally & physically. While everyone is aware of the obvious physical changes that come with pregnancy (hello, giant baby bump), I’ve learned that a lot of people aren’t aware of the hair loss about 6 months AFTER you have your baby. I’ll admit I was shocked when my hair started falling out after I had Hendrix & it’s funny because I had already gone through the whole experience previously with Kannon! There was something this time around though that felt different & that’s when I decided to approach things differently. I decided to embrace the new hair growth (even though at times it was a nightmare to style) & I kind of viewed the whole experience as “new hair, new me”. Instead of lingering on the hair loss, I focused on the growth & decided to focus on my growth as an individual as well. With that change came a newfound happiness within myself & I’m beyond thankful for that!
Have any of you had an experience where a small change ended up having a huge impact on your life?
If you haven’t already, I would love for you all to watch the video from the Herbal Essences ‘Changes’ campaign. I find it so inspiring & I hope every one of you who watches it feels the same!
