I have been reporting about the “fire walk”. The show was on Sunday and I am happy to say that I did it and absolutely enjoyed it. I faced my fear of singing in public. What was amazing to me was the process. I started out thinking I would learn to sing. What ended up happening was having the realization that I did not have to sing well to do what I wanted to do. I reclaimed my voice in all its imperfection. I cannot tell you how healing it was.
Shame is lead by perfectionism. It basically says that you have to be really good at something so you don’t make a fool of yourself. Well, it lies. We get to do what we want and enjoy our lives whether we are good at something or not.
I feel free. I don’t have to prove myself or be a great singer to sing.
