I came up with Thought of The Day ( TOTD for short) in 2010. It was because I had in hand a bundle of inspirational photos and quotes that I wanted to share with the world, and at that time, have not been introduced to Tumblr .Oh by the way, check out my tumblr here! (I have no shame in promoting myself). As I posted more TOTD's ,I realized that people were actually enjoying it, thus i kept going ,right till today.....
The most recent risk I can remember taking was trying out for a Cheer Elite Team.
I was scared and pretty unsure if it was the right thing to do because I started late as a cheerleader which meant that I was elder than most of the girls there.
Also, I was still new to the city so intimidation crept in.
I got all they way to the gym only to chicken out at the very last minute.
A good pep talk and some assuring did me well as I made my way to the gym, trying to be as invisible as I could.
I had to admit that during the first few minutes, I felt horrible. Like I did not fit in at all. It was like most of the cheerleaders knew each other before hand and I was the ugly-duckling there.
After some self sulking , I realized that it didn't really matter if I sucked, chances were, I was never going to meet any of the people there again. So I shook of the dust , and started to make friends.
It ended bitter-sweetly. I made the team! :)
But it looks like I won't be able to continue on in the team for the time being.
We'll see what the future brings! I'm really hoping to get back into cheering.
remember to take risks this week!
Be Right Back,
