So I decided I can’t be off work forever and as this hair loss shows no sign of going away fast… I need to embrace this as my life and just get on with it.
I am making some changes to my life though, I’ve decided that I try to do too much.
Before my Illness I was a photographer, a business coach, a director, an entrepreneur.
I’m forever making up new businesses and doing nothing with them.
I’m a creator for sure but my follow through is pretty ridiculous ! I’m the type of lady that thinks of a business idea, builds a website, Instagram, Facebook etc and then does nothing but posts the odd spam type social media post.
No business, just another hair brain idea of mine.
Anyway people make this a laughing matter so I decided to stop it. So I’m going back to being the director I once was. No other work, no photography other than hobby stuff, no new business ideas, closing everything else down to focus on the one business that I do have, that actually has an income stream (lol) and to aim to do that better.
I also want to focus on being a mum at the weekend not a mum sat in front of a Mac editing photos or reading emails. I’ve wasted the last few years trying to be everything and in fact it’s getting me nowhere, but stressed out, lonely and without hair.
I used to model too – that clearly stopped when I lost my hair – I don’t think it’s for me, I should have focussed on it more when I was younger but actually I’m not cut out for the modelling world really so that’s something I don’t think I’ll go back to even if my hair did grow back.
Being off sick has opened my eyes to what life could be, having time to see my family and friends, not worrying about building an empire.
So hopefully this new me and my new goals in life will streamline me and give me back some social time (ie not feeling ill social time).
Who knows I may even get my hair back… but I’m not counting on it. 💁🏼♀️
Here’s how I currently stand with the hair! All my once long blonde locks gone, now I have patchy brown fuzzy hair 🙂 but hey it’s hair, so I’ll be happy with that.
