No more Miss Nice Girl

The Native Americans believed that a photo could steal your soul…

I don’t know if there is any truth in that… but I do believe that we can give our power away to others quite easily especially if we don’t have faith in ourselves.

Our parents spent years letting us know we need to obey them and our teachers. So much so, that we learn to LIKE the comfort of following someone else’s lead. Someone who always seems to know better than us.

But they don’t know everything!

My story

My career plan as a teenager included dancing or acting or singing. My poor guidance teacher didn’t know what to think… and her suggestion that I consider nursing or teaching fell on deaf ears.

Though I auditioned and was accepted to acting school, I was convinced to go to University instead by my Dad. I did take dancing and singing classes in the evenings for a while but then one comment from my singing teacher stopped me in my tracks.

Mr Smolenski innocently told me that my voice wouldn’t be fully developed until my 30’s so I decided to just give it up!! Crazy or what!

In my thirties I did go back to singing, studied Jazz music, recorded a demo and started to gig in some clubs in Dublin. But again in a moment of self-doubt, I went to a trusted friend who told me to give it up and join a choir. I auditioned for a couple of choir but didn’t get in and gave up music for another 3 years…

Are you seeing the trend here???

Yes, my lack of confidence meant I listened more to other people than to myself. But despite the lack of support I keep coming back to doing music which must mean something. It was like an itch that I just had to scratch!

I’m so glad I’ve learned from those mistakes finally! Now I gather my thoughts and steel my resolve to be able to fight for the life I want even if no one else really “gets” it.

If you need to believe in yourself more just remember that no one else can live your life for you. Watch this GREAT trailer for inspiration too.
