SCISSORS VS COMPUTERS

SCISSORS VS COMPUTERS

From time to time i like to Pinterest stalk, images of things that i want in my life and sit there imagining how i could create a space like that. I see an image of a girl with amazing jewellery, pot plant, iMac, fashion mag, white desk, updating her blog. 

Now believe me, fellow hairdressers would understand, after a 12 hour day on your feet, sitting at desk doesn't sound all that bad. Typing away on your iMac, sipping on coffee (or wine) and uploading photos of your trendy life, sure does sound appealing. Ooo and stationary, i love stationary, almost as much as perfecting balayage.

As I have learnt over the last couple of weeks, its all an illusion. Having only used my hands for cutting and colouring since i left school, all knowledge of photoshop and basic email writing, have been tested. Scissors have become pens and brushes are now a keypad. A pot plant and rose gold candle are hidden under the piles of paper work. My printer has been working out more than me and not to mention the amount of Autographs lately, it seems like everyone from the lawyer to the accountant is wanting one. This must be what its like to be FAMOUS.

All those little Neurons reaching new places they have never been, can be quite a fulfilment. Like one of those silent victories where you have learnt something new and you should clap for yourself.

While i used to sit back and enjoy life as an employee,  all the business owners out there, take a bow. It is hard work. You learn that things aren't going to change, you must physically change things yourself. You will get that little feeling inside and you know, THIS IS IT.

Climbing the ladder of success is much like climbing the Kangaroo Point stairs. First time you do it, it SUCKS! But the more you work at it, the better you get (so they say). I'm still on the first run, trying to make it to the next step, running, walking, climbing, crawling. All of which, is still moving in the right direction.
