What did I learn in 27 years as a hair stylist?
I learned how to listen more deeply than the words, to what people want for their hair, and follow through to the best of my ability with giving them just that,
I learned how to put my own ego on a shelf, set it aside completely for a moment and listen very deeply,
I learned how to understand and know and appreciate the uniqueness of each person,
and how to see and love each person for their own beautiful uniqueness,
I learned what it is like to take part in some really amazing conversations,
Also, I learned that the world is abundantly filled with unique and insanely beautiful individuals,
I learned that people need to be listened to and seen and understood deeply and appreciated and loved,
And I learned that I deeply and sincerely love and appreciate people for their own unique selves,
I learned how to be comfortable sharing my own authentic unique self.
That and much more is what I learned in the last 27 years, and that is what I will be bringing to my next career.
Wish me luck!
