This is the twelfth of 12 “amazing” installments of “12 days that amaze.” I am pushing myself to write 12 posts about things that amaze me leading up to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser in Chicago that Karin, Deb and I are participating in. In doing so, I must also be open to the everyday amazing things that happen around me.
This was supposed to go up last night, but I’m in Chicago with friends, getting ready to have my head shaved. This will be a short post.
My nervousness over giving up my hair had subsided over the last couple of days, but now that the day is here, my stomach is in knots all over again. But there are a couple of things that make it all OK. Meeting up with a friend who was until now been an online friend only and having it be pretty much exactly as you imagined helps calm the nerves. (Thanks, Deb!)
Reminding myself why we’re doing this helps even more. I’ll be in the midst of amazing, caring folks. I’m trying not to set my expectations too high, but I can’t imagine this resulting in anything but transcendental, epic awesomeness. In short, amazing.
