I did something really gutsy.
At least, well, for me.
It's been since freshman year of college that I have been in a play.
Last week, I auditioned for a play, a musical to be exact.
I still don't know if I made it, but to be honest, I don't really care.
I did the hard part: I auditioned.
I felt really out of practice and quite uncomfortable. But I did it. I stepped out of my comfort zone, which I am continuously working on (hello fashion posts! Woo) and took a chance. It felt really good.
My life is quite insane…being in 4 weddings in a month, teaching full time, being actively involved with the young women with my church….and don't forget about softball and exercise program I'm on…but I couldn't shake this feeling that I wanted to get on stage. That I needed to perform. Or, well, at least try. I felt this nagging feeling to do something that gave me something to look forward to! I felt stuck. I felt like I was doing the same routine over and over. And, well, since I am a spontaneity buff and adventuresome soul, I did what not many people can do, I stood and sang and let people judge me.
It was really hard. I haven't done that in a long time.
But I am proud of myself for taking this little step.
I don't know if I made a lead role, but I received a call back last night. Which, in a way, is a huge step.
I am a true believer in doing things for yourself. For living a life that you want. And to live that life RIGHT NOW. The time is now to do what you have been afraid to do. The time is now to live out your dreams. Are you scared of something but really want to try? At least try. I feel invigorated.
And that, my friends, is a good feeling.
Step out of your comfort zone. You'll feel that way too.
With my audition, I had to turn in some headshots.
Speaking of comfort zones and taking chances NOW, I decided to let you guys see some of my close up face and my head shorts.
So, let me ask you:
