I love Nike’s slogan. It resonates with me. I have been wanting to cut my hair super short for months now. Months and months. I kept on thinking about it. I have really curly hair and was scared to look like a poodle. At each hair cut, I asked my stylist to cut shorter and shorter but never went as short as I really wanted. At my appointment last week, I felt ready. “Just do it!” I pleaded. He did cut it short but the funny thing is that I still want to go even shorter. So, I am going back this morning for the final chop chop.
I have been wanting to write about my Mom for years now. I felt as a writer, I should honor her by writing about her. However, that was easier said than done. Writing about her was just too painful. I would start and then stop. A few days ago, something possessed me. I emailed an editor to see if she would be interested in an essay about my Mom. I felt with Mother’s Day approaching, it would make a good story. She asked to read it. I hadn’t even written it yet. But I sat down and wrote. The words just poured out of me. It felt so good to write about her. I don’t know if it will get published but I am very proud of myself for just doing it. I know she would be proud of me too.
Do you have any goals or dreams that you haven’t taken any action on?
