How to leave attachments behind (so bad haircuts don't ruin your day)

Have you ever cried over a haircut knowing it was totally ridiculous that you were crying about something like that? Yeah, me too. In fact, that's exactly what happened to me last week.

Now, in my old life I'd just cry it out and accept how I felt and moved on with it. But that wouldn't really serve either of us now would it? (nope) Instead, I chose to dig and I asked myself; Arielle, babe, what's really going on here? It is a haircut gone too short...

... or is it what the hair represents that's really upsetting me?

Of course it wasn't the hair! Sometimes (ok most times) what’s on the surface isn’t really what’s going on. Sometimes we feel angry, upset, anxious or let down and it has nothing to do with what we think it has to do with. This is what attachment looks like, and it creeps up on us. It hides in the shadows until something comes up that shines a light on it. Like a haircut.

That's why I'm talking all about non-attachment in the video below.
