Brave(r)

Everyone in life identifies with some sort of occupation/job.  I think it all boils down to the age old question of “Who are you?” This last week I was a performer.  Yes, it’s true.  Years of longing to be on the stage at Mile Hi Church I finally took some measures and actions to do what I have always dreamed of doing.  I small voice told me to just be myself. Be great and you will get noticed.  Great people don’t go around telling people they are great. They just impact and change the world around them and people KNOW that they are great. So that’s kind of what I did. First I got into the choir because of my client, and then while I was there the music director noticed me … being me. Where does this story go? Well, from what I gather, it is a really big deal that I was chosen.  I was picked to be a back up dancer for Jennifer, the lead vocalist, to Grammy nominated song, Brave.  I learned the routine and then practiced my own freestyle dance.  Big surprise that no one had ever seen someone who had my moves.  All my club raving days came back to me in a heartbeat and without even thinking, my hands transformed into liquid fluid motion.  Everyone was mesmerized.  For the first time ever I showed off my crazy dance moves to the general public. Dancing in dark loud club with 50 people around you is not the same thing as being on a stage in front of 1200, plus an online audience as well. It was a lot of fun and I am hoping that was not a one time thing.  I am crossing my fingers that there will be more opportunities for me to be a performer. I’m a singer, a dancer, a speaker, a presenter. But above all, … I am a performer.
