I was reading Roni's blog about going outside her comfort zone and I realized it's been a LONG time since I got those jittery, butterflies in my stomach feeling because I am so excited and scared about something at the same time. I'd like to have that feeling!
I remember in high school I tried out for choir and I picked the song "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. I can vividly recall the moment where I sang that song by myself in front of the choir director as my audition and then bursting out of the room and bouncing with glee when I found my sister who was waiting to walk home with me. I was so proud. And it didn't even matter if I got in or not, I gave it a shot and that was the point. And you know what? I probably sucked! But I got into the choir and had so much fun over the next two years making wonderful friends and admiring the very choir director I auditioned with. All because I took a very scary step.
Like she said, it doesn't have to be something big. I don't know what but I am going to do something. Who's with me??
