"New Light" (feat. Got2BeGlued)
Well, it looks like we are feeling the indian summer affect. I'm able to wear a t-shirt in SF. I mean it's still cold, but not as cold as it was over the summer. Let's be real, it was freezing. One of the things that kept me warm is my hair. Yes i'm going to write about my hair since it's something that is brought up to me ALL THE TIME NOW. I have been growing out my hair for 7 months now. It's actually longer than it looks. I only started growing out my hair because I wanted something different. When I said I surrender, I really meant it. Short hair became the typical move for me. Honestly the longer it grows the more me I feel. I don't want to cut it at all. It's helping me see myself in a new light. It's a little more fun, if i'm being honest, having longer hair. It's a mixture of old me and new me and it's just so special. I know you are probably saying, why the hell am I sitting here reading about Dom's hair. I wanted to bring it up because from my comments on instagram to everytime I see someone when I am out, "I love your hair Dom, it really suits you". Yes, it does. As I navigate moving forward it's a nice little addition to show i'm a new guy. Life has been giving so many opportunities lately. If i'm being meta, the more it grows, the more I grow. We are only 2 weeks into the new month and I have experienced so much in so little time. Ranjot told me, ride it bro, just keep riding it and don't get off. So i'm gonna listen and keep riding it. I feel like more people are interested in me now, because I feel more fascinated and more invested with my own journey. When the month started I re read chapter 3 of this story. I wanted to see where I was a year ago. Man, this story is vastly different and filled with so much growth. Reading the words I wrote, it's like reading 2 different stories in 1. My style has evolved too. There is little elements of old me mixed with new me. I mean, i'm wearing a t-shirt in SF right now... I would NOT have done this a year ago. Also let's talk about the weight loss. I spoke a little bit about this over the summer, but I continue to drop and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. I'm more active than ever from my days with the kids, to long shooting hours, and now I go to events, so I have make sure I feel a little comfy in my own skin. You know, sometimes it doesn't feel comfortable being in your own skin. I'm going out more often and new me feels a little insecure sometimes. Not as much as old me, but I look around and see so many HOT humans. Like, ugh, god made beautiful humans. Literally, everyone looks amazing, and I just gotta remind myself, I'm here for a reason. People want me to come to their parties or represent their brand for a reason. A year ago no one would give me the time of day, now i'm the one giving the time of day. It's so weird for me. I look in the mirror, i'm skinner than I was last year, my hair is longer than ever, and I feel good. I actually feel good. I guess the point of it all is, when I surrendered, I opened myself up for something new. I guess now that my outsides are matching my insides, people can finally see what I've wanted them to see. Now they see me in a new light.
