Well, I’ve decided that it’s time to set myself a challenge. I want to try and see if I can master being able to do something that I’ve always found hard. It’s just a small one, and it won’t matter too much if I don’t manage it because it’s something that I can cope without being able to do.
The other day I was reading a post on Charlotte Maccalum’s blog called My 1st Ponytail. In it she talks about tying her hair back. Her post is the inspiration behind the challenge that I am setting myself. So thank you Charlotte for writing that post.
Putting my hair into a ponytail is something that I’ve always struggled with because it would involve me using both of my hands, and it’s something that I find really, really hard to do because of my left hand. I think I’ve managed to do my own ponytail once a couple of years ago and I’ve never managed it since. Surely if I’ve done it once, I can do it again. It wasn’t perfect, but it sort of stayed in until I got to the university lecture that I was going to, and then I think I asked someone else to do it again for me.
So, my challenge to myself is this: I want to be able tie my hair back again, at least once, and maybe even being able to do it whenever I want. If it’s something that I don’t ever fully get the hang of it won’t really matter because I can always just wear it down like I do now, but it would be nice.
I’m not expecting to be able to do it straight away, or for it to be neat and tidy if I do manage it, but I’d like to try.
I’ll keep you posted about how I get on.
