Comfort in the Little things When You Have Control Issues

Many people will probably be surprised to learn that I’m not that easy going, put together person they think I am.  That’s the stage me.  That’s the straight hair me.  In reality, I’m messy, suffer from anxiety, and struggle with control issues.  I find comfort in my tiny daily rituals like straightening my hair, and applying lotion to my sensitive dry desert dwelling skin.

My trusted companion of almost nine years has left me high and dry.  Actually, she’s left me frizzy and fried.

I feel completely lost without that daily piece of control.

I know, it’s sad, but it’s the little things in life that count, right?

So, my ten minutes of me time in the morning help to ground and balance me just a little bit.

I don’t like change, and I don’t like pulling the trigger when it comes to shopping for myself, but like the blue butted monkey in the Lion King says, “It is time. ”

So, the question is, do I buy the same Chi Pro for $87, or do I get the cute purple one for just $20?

  1. Tough day. Crossing my fingers you find a good replacement, Terri. When my Chi ceramic straightener dies, I’m sure I will feel anxiety! Curly tresses are great until they frizzle in the rain and East Coast humidity.
