My mom came home with my report card one Tuesday afternoon. I eagerly grabbed it to check my grades (those are not what brought me to writing this, though). Stapled to my report card was a notice regarding next year's musical. All my life I've been interested in acting, but singing, not so much. 'Great,' I thought, 'If I want to audition I have to sing.' I had myself believing I couldn't sing. This got me discouraged a lot. This was a great opportunity for me to have fun acting but if I couldn't sing I wasn't going to get a chance.
Days past, me still thinking singing was impossible. My dad told me he thought I had a wonderful voice, but sure he says that, he's my dad. Isn't he supposed to say those things? I thought about my voice and singing for a while before I did some research. I Googled "Singing Tips" and other things like that and something I saw repeatedly was that having confidence is a lot of help when singing. That was defiantly something lacking when I sang. I was worried about people hearing me and such that I sang quiet and didn't utilize my full potential.
Still I wasn't a great singer and I definitely was not interested in making a fool of myself in front of people. Maybe I won't audition this year or maybe even the next year but this did teach me something: Never say you can't do something because anything is possible. Sure there are some things that are impossible, like me turning into a ferocious lion or my sister liking ketchup. Still, can't should be a very limited word in my vocabulary and I will continue to tell myself that I can do anything if my mind is set to it, even sing with practice and help and confidence.
Can't be limited in the words you say Whyvillians,
