A BARBER'S VALUABLE LESSON
Have you ever experienced a sudden, unspoken connection with someone, or something that you couldn’t explain? It happened to me yesterday, and I’m still all out of sorts.
I showed up, like I always do, for my biweekly haircut with the guy who’s been cutting my hair for the last 6 months. He doesn’t call himself as a “barber”, rather, a “hair designer” because he didn’t go to barber school. I remember thinking during my very first appointment that he was super corny and for the most part, full of shit. My haircut was dope though, so I kept going. We’d never bond or be friends, right?
I’m more of an introvert than people think, and it takes me awhile to warm up to people. So basically, I just showed up for my appointments with no real intent to chat about anything other than the weather, or to actually enjoy 30 minutes of downtime. My mind was always on to the next.
But then yesterday, there was an energy shift, y’all, and it was nothing like I’d ever experienced before. I let my guard down, relaxed my mind – and let my body turn into Jell-O. Mr. Hair Designer and I didn’t chat much, but we had an unspoken understanding that it was okay for me to just let the hell go – if only for a few minutes. The clippers, in my opinion, are never particularly soothing, but when I allowed myself to just be in that moment, they felt like Saturday morning when you realize you don’t have to get up for work. They felt like your favorite glass of wine. Hell, they felt like the butterflies in your stomach when you fall in love.
So, did the hair designer change my life? No, but he definitely awakened my senses to just stop. And smell the roses.
