A few months ago, you would have read about my hair dilemma. (Oh, yes – I address the big issues on my blog) I decided to grow my hair long and ditch the hair dye. I envisioned long, glorious, dark curls. But I was dealing with a dry, almost-green-it’s-been-dyed-that-much mess.
Now normally I’m a kinda ‘gotta have it now now now’ sorta gal. Patience is not my middle name. But it was time to mix it up. Try something new. So I resisted the urge to cut it off, try some new style or dye it pink a La The Fabulous Helen Mirren. No, I persevered with the icky brown horrible length hair I had and stayed away from mirrors.
I conditioned diligently and had regular cuts and just patiently waited for my hair-dreams to come true.
And they have.
Behold the long, glorious, healthy, shiny hair. My karmic reward for being patient.
Now I’m not known for my patience. Ask my postman. If he’s late I refuse to wink at him. Outright refuse. That’s how I roll. I like to have things right when I want them.
But after watching many re-runs of Karate Kid and Kung Fu Panda, I decided to embrace my zen. Wait. Be patient. And in the meantime, put yourself in the best possible position to achieve your goals. (Those movies either meant that – or just fight and eat noodles. Either way they’re both good messages.)
So my hair dreams have come true. And coincidently so did my other dream. You know. The one about being a published writer. The whole point of this blog.
I did it.
I received The Call.
My first book will be published by Harlequin UK and released in the UK and NA market in January 2014.
I would squee but that would not be cool. And I so want to be cool. *squeeee*
Breathe. In through the nose. See how zen I am?
So if you need me, I will be patiently awaiting January 2014.
And imagine how hot my hair will look by then?
