Sometimes (most of the time), I have stories in my head about how things should be and why I can't do things differently. Once in a while, I decide to challenge those stories and I'm happily surprised to see that things only get better.
Like the idea I've held for about 20 years that I needed to part my hair on the right - the side where my gargantuan cowlick is. Ever since I quit parting my hair down the middle, it's been parted on the right.
Different hairdressers have tried to get me to part it on the left. But I knew it wouldn't work -I would be trying to have hair lie down over that big bump of cowlick - so I didn't try.
For some strange reason, when Awesome Emily the Hairwhiz recently suggested it once again, the words, "Why not?" rolled out of my mouth as easily as the "F" word rolls out of Robin Williams.
Now I part my hair on the left and I love it!
I could have done this years ago.
Let's see now, what else can I change..
