I blogged about this Saturday night on Natural Sunshine, a community that I belong to for natural hair enthusiasts about doing “you”. Have you ever done something that you always desired but didn’t because of the way you were raised, worried how someone would react or because of fear? It doesn’t have to be something that you would be ashamed of, it can be anything, something adventurous, traveling, skydiving, running a marathon, not wearing makeup in public. You know how some women are, won’t step outside without any makeup on. The point I’m trying to make is, what is something that you’ve always wanted to do? What is holding you back, finances, time, or you?
When I look back at my life so far, I’m happy with my life. Do I desire to do more? Of course, within reason. I still want to travel outside the United States, not sure where. My husband has been all over, I love hearing his stories about when he was in the military and his travels. Now that he’s retired, he doesn’t have a desire to travel anymore. Gotta respect that, but it’s not gonna stop me. I have to put that on my bucket list.
Don’t laugh, but I used to want to get my nose pierced for many years but I was scared of scaring on my nose because I have keloid skin. Plus I knew my mother would have a hissy fit, they almost passed out when I moved back from California and was wearing a toe ring! It was too funny, my daddy said, “you have a ring on your toe”. Yes I know that daddy. I know they discussed that one for a few days. I’ve worn glasses since I was 8 years old and never tried contact lenses, I actually like wearing glasses. I love how the frames bring out my personality.
I know you all have heard me talking about how I want a new camera, and when I get it I’m gonna take a few lessons. The camera is an investment and I want to use it right. I plan to attend a few blogging conferences next year so I have to get ready. Thanks to LaShawn at My Life, she shared her experiences at the BlogHer conference with her readers and I’ve decided to attend the conference next year in Chicago. I also want to attend Blogalicious next year. Those are goals I’m gonna have to work very hard for, but can achieve.
Are you doing what you truly desire? Do you plan to?
