I’m not talking about relationships exactly, but rather, embracing the quirky-ness that is in all of us. Today while my boyfriend and I were walking around the mall, this little elderly lady with her husband came around the corner. They were probably in their 60s or 70s, but in really good shape. The man was grinning and the lady was grinning, and they walked happily holding hands. It wasn’t their smiles I noticed initially though. It was the little woman’s hair.
She had short platinum hair (probably naturally platinum, which is totally rad!) with pinkish-red tips. I was shocked, but I grinned so big. I wanted to hug her and take her picture, but I was far too nervous!
My point is, you don’t have to be 20 to dye your hair a funky color or have piercings or tattoos. You don’t have to be young to wear cool clothes. You just have to be willing to express yourself, and bold enough to go for what you want. This little lady with the spiky colored hair inspired me so much. She was dressed modestly, but here she was with this wonderfully colorful hair!
Whenever I see elderly folks expressing themselves, I always feel a bit happy inside. I know some people would look down on them, but I think we should all embrace the little quirks that we all have, and celebrate that unique beauty we possess.
Have you ever seen an elderly person with something “quirky” “funky” or “out of the norm” on their body/hair? What do you think about quirky appearances or fashion in other people?
