Oh My Gosh – I Did It!

oh my gosh

Sunday morning I was a nervous wreck.

  • Not because of a speaking engagement.
  • I love speaking – it’s a true high for me.
  • It was more.

I tested my wings in ways never done before.

  • I formally auditioned for a spot in an improv troupe.
  • Comedy auditions were new to me.
  • (Sure I tried out for a competitive spot in a choir ensemble in 10th grade – only a few years ago – this was different!)

I had no idea what would happen.

  • They asked us to be prepared to stay for three hours.
  • To do scenes with people I had never met.
  • And who knows what?

Thankfully one of my class troupe members was also trying out.

  • Although we did nothing together.
  • It was calming to have him there.
  • Helped me get in my normal space.

I rocked the audition.

  • Felt good in my skin.
  • Was super responsive to people.
  • Played all in – totally bold.

(Drum roll please…) A few minutes ago I officially accepted a spot on the Ann Arbor Civic Theater Mid-Form Improv troupe!

  • The coach plans to get us out performing as much as possible.
  • (Yes, we use a sexier name for the troupe in public.)
  • Can’t wait to start!

I’m beyond excited.

Going swing from the chandelier for a while – until it’s time to do my Powerful Woman Group Coaching session this afternoon!

How are you taking risks to bring more joy in your life?

    Stand up for what I believe in with respect and kindness! I’m going to start making some phone calls.
