A few weeks ago, I did something that scares me. It was something that pushed me to make a choice to step through the barrier of fear. I auditioned for a role in a Pro-Amateur production of “Beauty and The Beast“.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela
In the two weeks between being allocated an audition time and doing the actual audition, I wish I could say that I was unwavering, wholly committed to going through with the audition. I would love to say that I didn’t suffer from self-doubt, and second-guess my every decision.
That wasn’t the case.
