After another long day of tennis, my team took the state title! While the day was hugely exciting, it was also nerve-wrecking and exhausting. It was sad to play my last match ever with my partner, but it was also amazing that our last match got to be the state championships!
Today was also the last day of my bamboo challenge. After a long drive home, I paired my Mini Skirt with a warm, over-sized sweater and some boat shoes for a casual dinner back in Lakewood. Now I’m home again and able to reflect on my busy week.
On one hand, it sort of feels like my lifestyle change was so slight that it couldn’t have even made the tiniest difference. However, on the other hand, I think that there is something to be said for simply being more aware. This week I was constantly thinking about my actions and the impact that they were making on the world, and that is the first step. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t know it exists. For that reason, I am proud of myself for taking this challenge, and for becoming more mindful of the world around me.
Thanks for reading, and wear bamboo!
