A Sign I’m Getting Wiser

This morning as i was getting ready, I looked closely at my face in the mirror. As I moved my eyes up, I noticed two little grey hairs on the front of my head. I was happy to see these two hairs.

I AM 25!

May be when I get older my views will change but I doubt it.

A message to the two youngest parts of my head. “I will not dye you. I will take care of you and give you the same nourishment as the rest of me. Don’t you worry, welcome to my life 🙂
