I have always been one to fully express myself as I see fit – even if it goes against cultural norms. I was far more extreme when I was younger, but still have a few ways that I stay true to that even as I approach my late-20’s. I am not changing who I am, but I am about to remove a part of me – or so it feels. I guess this is part of growing up – having to say goodbye to some of this expression. I am going to take out my facial piercings. It feels weird. I mean yes, they are an accessory – but an accessory that has been a part of my daily life since I can remember. However, on the flip side, I feel good about taking them out – it is a sort of cleansing for me as I walk into a new position – start clean and fresh. And plus, I can still accessorize with other fun sparkly pieces…maybe now that these diamonds are gone I will get lucky enough to get a different diamond in my collection?! Oh how a gal can dream…
Have you ever changed something about your appearance for a job? Was it worth it? Was it hard for you?
