Day 28

If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.

Geena Davis

Scared shitless. But going for it anyway.

These past few days, I’ve been doing things that are out of my comfort zone… a bunch of talented musicians asked me to audition as lead female singer and accompanying keyboardist. While I was excited-thrilled-nervous, I was also scared. 

I showed up. I showed up full of nerves and uncertainty. I gave it my all. I had a blast trying my best and was proud of my efforts. I used to sing into my hairbrush as a teen – okay, well into my 50’s too – and pretend I was Pat Benatar… so I couldn’t NOT at least give it a “check, check, one-two-one-two” into the mic. 

We don’t have a name yet, but I have been welcomed as the lead singer in our newly formed band. 🙂

Like, oh-my-goodness, yesssssss!

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did.

Mark Twain

I am so thankful that I chose to show up, even afraid. Courage feels like trembling and shaking. Brave feels like a queasy tummy. Bold looks like sweating and sounds like “what do I think I’m doing?” Victory is not just I WON but also I showed up, I wasn’t so sure, I sang my guts out, and I left it all out there… Triumph has a flavor of vulnerability to it, for sure.

Be brave enough to bet on yourself.

Sophia Joan

Dreaming is good. But I want more than just to dream. I want to experience my dreams… and this means not knowing how things are going to unpack, if I’m going to flop up, if I’m going to make a fool of myself. 

As soon as you become afraid to make a fool of yourself, you’re in trouble. I decided I may as well just see if I can live with myself making millions of mistakes and learn something from it.

Gelsey Kirkland

I would rather try and fail than never to have tried. Failing means I got out there, I had some kind of faith, I thought myself worthy of dreaming and then experiencing, and maybe it didn’t work out and maybe I’m a fool… but I’m a fool with a story of risking because of curiosity and courage.

If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.

Erika Jong

Now… what to name the band… 🙂
