Winging It

This past week was so incredibly busy. I’m glad to be on this side of it, even though May will prove to be a handful, as well. One of the things I learned this week about myself was that I am more willing and more able to take risks, to try things new and by the seat of my pants, as it were.

This weekend, at the Just For Me Weekend, I set up the PA system and ran it, complete with changing effects on my voice while I was performing – for the first time. To me, this was a very big step.

I can remember when I wouldn’t sing a note unless I had rehearsed it, at least, a hundred times. But now, though I like to be prepared and am conscientious about doing my best, I am more trustful of the process *and* my ability to think on my feet…and survive mistakes and mishaps…which there were a few.

Take a deep breath and take a few chances. Let yourself try something without needing it to be perfect or caring what you will look like to others. Life isn’t a quiz. It’s not even a game. It’s a dance, filled with creativity, adventure and so many blessings, even with all the other stuff that’s going on.

Today, try winging it. Who knows, you might catch a current of grace and go soaring!
