It’s 8 O’clock in the morning. I’m sitting in my bedroom with my feet propped up, wolffin down four rice cakes and two ounces of chicken. Hahahah! Welcome to the world of Figure Competition.
Later today I will have my turn to sashay across the stage and show off the results of months of consistent hard work.
Two shows within a year… I’m blown away! Woo Hoo!! Who knew? I sure as heck didn’t!
Listen to me!!!
“Don’t underestimate your ability or your potential!”
Oh yeah and,
“Always keep an open mind to experience new adventures.”
You have to!! It makes for a much more interesting life. You will discover new things about yourself.
You think you know yourself? Seriously, you don’t! You can argue that point with me if you want, but you really don’t… at least not until you develop a habit of getting comfy with putting yourself in uncomfortable situations.
Think about it. We experience more self-doubt when we are placed in unfamiliar circumstances. Yah know.. “Can I do this?” “Oh my gosh, what have I gotten myself into?” The sweaty palms, racing heart beat, and the urge to flee.
It is only then do we see what we’re made of. Do we push ourselves to follow through or do we run away and make excuses?
I thought I was all confident and sh** until last April when I had to walk across the stage wearing a skimpy suit with my behind on display! LOL! Oh boy, did I learn some things me and my insecurities. But I made it through and did quite well.
I have to cut this post short because I have a few more things to do, but I will be back tomorrow or Monday to post pictures and to share my experience.
Y’all have a wonderful day as I will do the same. 🙂
