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… 🙂
