April 2017

The other day I was able to witness something so beautiful and heartwarming I started crying right in the middle of a haircut. A woman was getting her hair shampooed and received a call from her son saying that he was accepted into his #2 choice of schools. This came just after hearing that he was not accepted into his #1 choice which hit him and his mother pretty hard. The emotion that was exchanged on that phone call was amazing. She was so happy and so incredibly emotional she couldn’t help but just start crying…and as a result….I too was crying. The hardest part for her was being locked into a still position as she was trapped and the basin with a head full of suds!!! All she wanted to do, and you could feel it, was jump out of that chair and run around screaming “HE GOT IN”. The funny part about this is she was talking about how it had been such a bad day just before receiving the call. I recently saw a quote that was so perfect for this moment and it tied into so many other things in my life. “Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place”. This kid was devastated that he was not accepted by his 1st choice of school but after hearing all the pros of the 2nd choice it sounded like it was the best thing that could’ve happened. This really confirmed a philosophy that I have recently started living by. The universe has a plan so just relax and let it do its work. So many things are out of our control so let’s not waste a moment of time worrying about it. One way or another it all works out so take that energy that you used to spend worrying and use it spreading love and joy to all those around you. XOXO
