Hey Ladies! I figured I would add something positive to the internet world today by adding a cute little hair tutorial for you beautiful ladies to try out. At the end of this tutorial, I’ll add my little thought of the day on…you guessed it… Ashley Madison. If you want to skip my thoughts on that dreaded topic, go right ahead and end your read at my YouTube video of my tutorial. Oh and thank you “MCTY” for my fabulous top. You know who you are ;). Enjoy!
Side French Ponytail – (If you know of a way to make my YouTube videos clearer, please let me know. I have been taking them on my phone which is probably the problem, but if there is something I can do on the YouTube side – would love to know!)
This style is excellent for unwashed hair! Here are the steps!
My Thought of the Day on Ashley Madison
- Put dry shampoo in your hair then curl with a curling iron on lowest heat.
- Take all of your hair to one side of your head and tie off with a ponytail holder.
- Open up your hair above the ponytail holder and put the hair on the bottom over and bring through.
- Pull ponytail holder tight, then pull apart the hair in the twist.
- Pull out all of the pieces that you want and your done!
Those of you that know me, know that one of my worst fears aside from something happening to my child or husband is being married with kids and being cheated on. I’m sure many married men and women can relate. Because of that fear for myself, the events that have happened due to the Ashley Madison hack have been heavy on my mind and my heart. I am one of those individuals that will hear about something terribly tragic and it will literally keep me up at night. Some of these things include: people I know or know of dying, cancer, wars overseas, politics, even thinking about countries that hate Americans keep me up at night! I get caught up in the emotion of what other people are going through and feel, while imagining what I would feel in each of those situations and it ends up weighing so heavily on my heart.
My initial thought when my husband told me about the hack was, “Good! That’s exactly what those idiots deserve!”. After I lovingly asked my husband if he was on this list because I could now easily find it if he was, I pulled up the released list for myself and began to aimlessly scroll through it. It only took seeing one name I so much as recognized (don’t even know personally) and knew they had a wife and kids to literally make my heart palpitate and make my stomach churn. My initial actions to the Ashley Madison hack were knee-jerk reactions to the situation without thinking in depth about the future outcomes of it.
Let me go ahead and make myself clear. Do I for one second feel sorry for those individuals who were stupid enough to sign up for a service such as this? NO. I would like to think divorce is off the table in a marriage, but why an individual can’t simply ask for a divorce if he or she wants it instead of going behind their spouse’s back, cheating, and taking their disgusting germs back to their spouse is beyond me. (Yes, germs disgust me and I wash my hands like a doctor). So in one way am I happy these people were caught? Well, for their spouse’s sake, yes. Do I think it’s ok for people all over social media to be making a game out of catching names on the list they recognize? NO. NO. NO!
I looked at my child today and thought to myself, “There is another baby boy or girl out there who’s whole world is about to be turned upside down and inside out because of this”. Not only that, there are men and women who are having to find out about this from a published list. Their entire worlds coming crashing down before their eyes, and there are actually people out there making a game and a joke about this. I would love to ask those people who are posting these lists everywhere one question. Is there a list out there that if it was hacked could bring your entire world upside down?
A friend from college shared on Facebook yesterday afternoon very insightfully said, “We all have our Ashley Madison’s. Be careful when casting your stone from your glass house”. She’s right – we all do. Whether it’s lying, stealing, alcoholism, drug addiction, hate, porn, envy, lust, etc… Everyone has something. There are people committing suicide over this – families breaking, kids about to have to split households… What we SHOULD be doing instead of posting these lists everywhere and getting excited about “catching” someone you know on it is praying for these people on the list, AND those who have a spouse on there. Pray for those people on that list and give them an opportunity to turn their lives around instead of making them dread the rest of their life.
***Whitney’s thought of the day is done. Be kind. Use your brain. Worry about yourself. Peace.***
On another note, how awesome was the Fear The Walking Dead premier last night? OMG =) !!!
