How did I know this was going to happen eventually-ACTION.
Today we were asked to complete one action that 1. Something we have been procrastinating about for a long time 2. Something that terrifies you 3. Something that inspires you.
I decided to reach out to a women I met a few weeks ago at a natural hair meet-up. She is very friendly, very hospitable, we share a lot in common and she has already invited me to various parties, concerts and events with her and her girlfriends. The issue, I have a very difficult time forming friendships and making connections with new people in general. I suppose you could say I'm shy but I'm also very aware of my social ineptness. She always makes it a point to invite me out when she is going out but I have not returned the favor mostly because I dread even the thought of a possible sounding like a dork during a phone call/night out. So today, I called her to discuss hair of course :) and the next natural hair meet-up. So how did it go??
It was..ok. The call did have a few pauses that were awkwardly lengthy and I stumbled over a few words but it felt good knowing I'm moving in the right direction. It may seem small but in my world this is a big step for me :) I'm proud of myself LOL
