Big enough dreams

“If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.”

This quote (not sure who originally said it, I have seen it so many times) inspired my #oneword2014 choice of “risk.” My goal this year is to push myself out of my comfort zone and not just talk about taking risks but to actually take them.

I took a huge risk today. I am auditioning for the Listen to Your Mother Detroit show. I think I might throw up. I am so nervous. I am nervous that I will not get chosen and then I will come back here and tell everyone. I am nervous that I will get chosen and then I will have to stand up in front of an auditorium full of people and read my writing. Somehow posting on the inter-webs feels safer than a face-to-face reading.

So, the fact that I am terrified tells me that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

My audition is February 1. Prayers, good thoughts, juju whatever are totally welcomed and appreciated.
