Hey Friends! As the title reads ” it always seems impossible until it is realized” and today I want us to do one task more then we did yesterday, let’s push ourselves a little bit harder today. As usual we started our day with giving Thanks and coffee with friends. Today everyone got a big shock when I came out to have coffee with everyone because last night I chopped off all my hair. We will get to this later. Lol The wife said she really loved it and we enjoyed a beautiful morning . It was a comfortable temperature nice breeze and good company.
We hopped on the scooter and got some gas, and some breakfast. The cups there had cute little uplifting messages on the cups my husbands cup was in English and mine was in Italian I thought that was funny. Lol After we finished we headed straight to the sea. We found a cute little spot were it wasn’t too much waves it was more calm. I say more calm because it wasn’t smooth and calm the sea had some attitude today but where we were the rocks broke some of the waves before they got to us. We swam with our goggles on and it was AMAZING how beautiful it was.
My husband is so cool he dives right in the water and he tries telling me how beautiful it is because he knows I’ll want to see it too. It takes him a little while but he finally convinces me to once again risk my life and dive into the unknown abyss of the sea. LOL He is so patient with me about this thankfully because in the end after I face my fear and go in its always super beautiful and I feel great. It’s the fear that we have to conquer so we can see how beautiful life really is.
After we finished there we went to rest before we both started to work. We kissed each other good bye and he went to the restaurant and I started my work. I started with cleaning up and then I stretched and did my work out, meditation and work related tasks. Today my Intentions were as follows:

The past few days have been busy and with not great internet connection and I actually sat down to read a book. This rarity lasted all of about 10 minutes before I was feeling this book is definitely not for me. I do like to read I have lately been choosing the wrong books for me. It’s not their fault, it’s mine I chose wrong. The clouds have looked like big fluffy cotton balls these days and the heat has been tolerable.
Last night as I was making some home made chicken broth I decided that I was just DONE with having hair and I made the big cut. No… I wasn’t having a break down. Lol Honestly I’m just tired of worrying about my hair. The upkeep, finding hair around the house, every time you go swimming or take off the helmet you never know what disaster you’r hair will be, packing hair supplies for every trip, spending money on hair products and spending so much time trying to fix you’r hair. This photo is the one I used for hair inspiration. I love the old school looks and Elizabeth Taylor was a beauty.
I should tell you that once I set my mind to something I have a strong determination to see it through. This being said… After I set in my mind that I was ready to make the big cut and free myself from the chains that was my hair I began to look for the scissors to do it myself. There were none to be found. We had two options my husbands beard clippers or a tiny pair of scissors used to cut cuticles. Contemplating buzzing my hair I opted instead for the small scissors and I painstakingly cut my hair and evened everything out to the best of my ability. The end results are not hairstylist perfection but I did pretty darn good if I do say so myself. Lol
Also I love not having long hair right now. I think that this pixie cut style works better for our lifestyle and I feel more free and beautiful inside. My husband says he loves it and for me this is all that matters in this world. These past few days Life lessons were learned and facing my fears has been one of them. It’s easier said then done as always but once you do it a few times a feeling of freedom comes over you. Believing in ourselves and doing the things that make us feel beautiful and happy so we can be a shining light and examples for someone else.
We have one more day left in this first stage of our Champion Challenge and then we start phase two involving incorporating self love and stepping out of our comfort zones. Let me know what you guys have been learning along your life’s journeys.
