Letters to July – Twenty-Second

I’m going to try and blog every day during July as part of Letters to July. It’s probably a bad idea.
Dear July,
I gave myself time today. I figure I have some hours saved up in lieu, after the last couple of weeks. I spent a lot of the day waiting and instead of trying to fill the hours, I let them drift by. I made eggs for breakfast, had a long lunch break and showered twice.
I got my haircut and didn’t mind how long it took. I relaxed into waiting, slowly drinking the cup of tea and aimlessly flicking through magazines. The haircut itself was a little more stressful. Hairdressers in Melbourne keep convincing me I should get a shorter and shorter fringe. I guess because fashion? The primary reason I say yes is because it scares me a little and I don’t want to be governed by insecurities about my forehead. I think I like my new haircut. I hope I do, because the hairdresser gave me tea, talked me into being brave and was cheap, so I’d like to go back.
When I went to yoga in the evening, I felt relaxed as soon we I sat down, rather than stumbling into relaxation halfway through. So I think that means today was good.
