Circumstances and Choices

Bad experiences are not an excuse to become a bad person.

We are a product of the choices we make, not the circumstances that we face. – Roger Crawford 
When you are born into and/or face unfortunate and difficult circumstances in your life you have two choices on how you can deal with these experiences:
 
First, you can allow these experiences to consume you and to hold you back. You cause harm to yourself and to others. You allow anything difficult and painful that happened to you turn you into a unfavorable person. A person unable to take action, make changes and take responsibility. You become toxic.
 
Or, you can use these obstacles as stepping stones to become someone great, to rise above them and to not let them hold you back. You acknowledge what happened, break the chain and move on. You seek help when needed and perhaps even take the extra step to help others who faced the same challenges as you. You become strong.
 
The road is tougher when you are faced with obstacles and perhaps in some cases it is a bit more limited. However those who face the toughest battles are still capable of being the best they can be. These are people we admire.
 
Your circumstances set the stage but your choices determine the show.

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color – Darkest Blue 310 & Previous Blue Hair Experiences ♥

***Update April 28th, 2018 >> I would not recommend this hair dye as it faded very quickly!***

So a few posts ago I talked about being a blonde and staying one.. then this ended up happening last week. I bleached my roots no problem but when it came to the toning part, it didn’t turn out. My roots were still yellow and the rest of the strand was toned. So a mix of yellow/white/gray/violet. I saw that and decided just to go dark. Decided it would be the easiest and most low maintenance choice for the time being.

I do like to dye my hair different colors but that is as far as I am willing to go. I don’t like spending much time on it beyond that. Trying to be a cool toned blonde just wasn’t working out for me, it was costing a lot of time and money. Had to use specific a shampoo and conditioner as well which also costed more. I’m sure i’ll try to be a light blonde again someday but not anytime soon. I am naturally an ash blonde which is a cool toned blonde but it’s the bleach that makes my hair turn yellow and that is what I didn’t like and tried to get out. It’s a lot of work. Next time I do this I will be going to a professional. I am loving this color though. Blue is the color I have dyed my hair the most. Here are some older pictures from previous blue experiences:

Having my hair a dark blue reminds me of wonder woman…

I absolutely love the combination of the primary colors!

…So yes, this is my new hair as well as a dump of old photos, more than I expected but oh well! I see I have new followers, I say hello to you. To let you know my blog will probably mainly consist of self help and discovery as well as pictures I take which is usually nature, home, architecture, my cat and of myself. I would like to start talking about politics too but that is not for certain… Thank you for taking the time to read my posts! Cheers from Canada
