39 things to do before I turn 40

I’ve been working on my list and things are going a bit slow.  So far, I’ve been able to knock two things off.  I tried yoga.  I discovered a few things about myself by doing yoga.  I discovered that I’m not as balanced as I thought I was.  There were a few times that I thought I’d end up on the floor when I wasn’t supposed to be.  The sun salutations, down dog and other positions proved to be quite interesting.  I liked it enough that I’ve decided to do it once a week.  The other thing I was able to check off of my list was try a new short haircut.  All my life I’ve felt that I was supposed to have long hair.  My grandmother used to always reference the girl down the street who “couldn’t grow hair”.  She was afraid that if I cut my hair it wouldn’t grow back.  Even when I cut the top a little shorter, I always kept a bit of length in the back.  Since I stopped putting chemicals in my hair, I’ve been able to try quite a few new things with my hair, but I still kept hearing my grandmother’s voice so I wouldn’t cut it too short.

Well, I cut it.  I like it!  And I think grandma would too.
