The theme of my life in 2012 is all about going back to what I originally loved to do. I got my art groove after 5 years of creative drought. Although a bit erratic, I started playing tennis again after two decades. Then now, I got full gear for another sport I have not touched in 20 years — swimming.
Life in high school meant swimming between 8-10am then tennis at 1pm. 40 laps in a 25-meter pool. I stopped because of vanity. My hair was horribly damaged. Yes, I stopped swimming due to hair issues. It was so dry that for years my friends thought my hair was naturally frizzy. Because brittle hair is very difficult to deal with (and look at), I wore my hair in public only one way: tied in a tight ponytail. No amount of weekly salon treatments could speed up the process. I simply had to grow it out completely (and my hair was very long!) No one ever saw my hair down until way after college.
For the same reason I stopped is the same reason I’m getting back
Oh, and another important motivation to go back: to share a sport with the hubby and encourage him to like swimming
Hope everyone’s got good vibes and sunny skies around — happy weekend people!
