This Saturday, I’m auditioning for something where I have to get up in front of people and talk. Boy am I nervous. I’ve written before that my fortes are pen, paper, and the keyboard. Say my words? Yikes. Sure I did it once before, but before I even began to talk I stood shaking for a full sweaty minute. In front of a waiting audience. Now I’m putting myself up there again. And I think I’m going to try to be funny. Which is hilarious. Because I don’t do funny in person.
But I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
This is why I am doing something I am so uncomfortable doing: To push myself. To challenge my long-held belief that I “can’t.” To get up there. To shed labels of what I’ve told myself I am. To do it. To act as if. As if I CAN.
So I will.
What have you told yourself you can’t do, and have either done or plan to do?
