And another week rolls by…funny how that happens so quickly. And I was even paying attention!
Despite that, I’m probably the only person on the planet who hadn’t seen this video until today:
As this young girl is singing our (U.S.) national anthem in a sweet, clear voice, the microphone suddenly goes out. There’s a moment of silence (broken only by some idiotic woman’s gleeful laugh), and the girl looks confused and maybe a little bit scared, but she continues to sing even though the sound is diminished. Then, a wonderful thing happens as voices from the audience join with her to help her finish the song.
It’s a lovely moment on its own, but I also love it as a parallel to this wonderful blogging community of ours. Whenever our efforts are less than we hoped–whether through technical difficulty or personal frailty–there are always the voices of our fellow journeyers to jump in and help us finish. We may not be able to capture our moments on film, but we can certainly catch–and keep–them in our hearts. I don’t know about you, but my heart is full, and for that I thank you!
I’m spending tomorrow with the senior set (a.k.a. parents and Memaw), so this wraps up my blogging week. Before I dash off (as much as one can dash with a trio whose collective age is 240), I wanted to share some interesting articles from my reader:
7 Best Ways to Gain Self-Confidence from Pick-the-Brain.
Confidence is a characteristic that allows us to take risks in our lives. It is often through risk, we achieve great success in many aspects of our lives. It makes sense, therefore, to try to develop our own self-confidence as best we can in order to be successful and happy.
Staying motivated―and achieving what you set out to do on that bright New Year’s Day―is surprisingly possible.
Wishing you all a marvelous weekend! And if you should hit a sour note or two, know that I’m standing here singing for you! Badly, but with great enthusiasm!
