You’ve probably noticed that I’ve fallen off my fearless quest for a while. But I’m back and I’m more fearless than ever! However, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Though the posts may have stopped, fearless challenges have not.
After a few weeks of hiatus, I think it’s time I let you in on a little secret. I’ve taken my fearless quests to a whole new level by attempting to live a dream I’ve always held close to my heart. I am training to be a professional dancer for a sports team.
Auditions for the Trenton Freedom dance team are January 18th and I am scared out of my mind for several reasons. The are as follows:
1. I haven’t auditioned for anything since high school.
2. I lost almost all my flexibility!
3. I haven’t seriously danced since college and will be competing against girls who have danced their whole lives!
4. I am way out of shape and don’t think I have the look they want for their dance team members. (i.e. blonde/brunette, green eyes and a sick pack)
In order to accomplish this goal and tackle the fear I’ve been doing a lot to better prepare me. These things include daily stretches, attending dance classes I’ve always been afraid to take (there is nothing like returning to a dance class with prima ballerinas after a longlong hiatus), and committing to a clean diet.
So why have I taken so long to dish about my secret fearless quest? Simply put, I was scared. I knew that letting my loyal readers know about my quest to be a pro dancers would only mean that I would definitely have to do it. But it’s time I let the world know my plans. After all, my mother always said a closed mouth doesn’t get fed. Therefore, I am speaking it into existence. I will be a Trenton Freedom Dance Team Member. Let’s just hope this fear won’t be as scary as I anticipate.
