Are you one of those people who doubts yourself or who you are?
Yesterday, our school had a Talent Show (this is something that has not been done in while). Yesterday I witnessed kids that barely talk, communicate or have relationships with their peers or teachers perform amazing acts of talent...they came out in a different way. Kids sang, danced, dressed in costume, did magic tricks, and transformed into what to many seemed uncomfortable, but to them was just "fun!"
I could not help but watch all of these children and think to myself, "what amazing courage?!" I would never have the courage to get up on stage by myself and do what I witnessed yesterday (especially in front of kids...the biggest critics of today!)
One thing I enjoyed watching yesterday and hope that my two kids learned... is that the kids that performed were themselves! They did not care! Their audience was shocked, amazed and stunned by what they witnessed to kids who were once quiet and to themselves. The stage allowed them to shine and let loose.
As I watched I saw something that I hope that I can honestly learn from as a mom and as a person....be yourself. When it comes to the end...what will I be the most proud of? Will I be proud of getting the approval of others or the approval of myself and the ones that really matter?
I am sooo proud of my students and can't wait to watch them grow and hope that I continue to grow...to not care....except only what I really care about.
The faces that are shown above are my two babies who didn't have a worry in the world or care about what anyone thought. There was a pure, sweet, moment where they did not have a care in the world but to have fun! There was no knowledge of judgement or fear of what people think. They let their talents shine without the stage.
I can remember going to a recording studio as a kid and being "behind the scenes." I was in my own world while I made my very own CD. I did not have to be on a stage to have fun. I felt like a super star! MOTH Music Services Inc. offers a way for kids and adults to shine on stage or behind the stage. From recording, performances, or one on one lessons, people have the ability to let their talent shine!! The talent inside of us all can be revealed while one as fun! Some of us need that extra boost and that is just what they offer!
