128. Going Grey: The Ups & Downs of Growing Out My Natural Hair at 40

My hair may be changing, but so am I.

Growing out my grey is about soooooooo much more than hair. A year in, I’m more genuinely confident –that doesn’t mean I love every day, but my gosh, I see the growth literally and figuratively. I see the beauty and the potential. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom, but I know how quickly this transition will fly by, even if it takes years.

In this episode I talk about:
