Today I did something I’ve always wanted to do. It wasn’t big or life-changing, but it was an experience that I had wondered about for a while.
My hair has been short before, so that wasn’t really the issue. The issue was doing the act myself — scissors in hand, giant chopped-off locks in the other. How freeing is that?!
The humidity of the late morning got to me; I was sweating and constantly retying my hair back to keep its suffocating length from making me even hotter.
“It’s time,” I thought.
Of course, afterwards I went to a salon to get it fixed up right.
“Uhm, I just cut off all my hair. Can you fix it?”
Yeah, it was good fun, and a little bit exciting, which is why I wanted to take a minute to challenge you to do something you’ve always wanted, too. It doesn’t have to be travel-related (but that is usually more fun, hey?).
My flatmate and I were having a conversation the other night about her life goals. As of now, she’s working two jobs trying to get ahead, and it is seriously taking a toll on both her social life and mental well-being. Her concern was that she’s working and working and before she knows it, she’ll be 30 and have wasted the better years of her 20s.
Her goal now is to just do something out of the ordinary, and the first step for her is to sign up for French classes. I’m happy for her.
Doing something you’ve always wanted to do, or just something different, is always good for the soul. What are you going to do?
