Ever since I can remember, I've bitten my nails. I have no idea why or exactly when it began, but I can never recall a time when I had naturally long, healthy, pretty fingernails.*
For a long time, it didn't bother me. That's just who I was: a nail-biter. And, of course, the more my mom told me not to do it, the more I did it. Then in college (yes, I was still biting my nails in college) I took some ballet classes - and watching the beautiful hands of advanced dancers was one of the most enjoyable things for me. They were so elegant and graceful.
So today, I resolve to let that go. I release myself from that habit. I will continue to tell myself each day that I no longer need to bite my nails and that beautiful, long, healthy fingernails (and the fun benefit of manicures and nail polish) await me.
The results of this day's letting go: seeing the light at the end of a life-long bad-habit tunnel; enjoying a little extra beauty; setting a better example for my daughter.
* Except for when I was pregnant - my hair and nails never looked better!
