TONI SAYS, "WHEN I FEEL LIKE I'M LOSING TRACK OF MY RESOLUTIONS, I WILL..."
Let me tell you a story. Some of you have heard this before. :O)
At some point in rather early in childhood, I decided I wanted to be an actress. From junior high school on, there were 'drama' classes available at the school. I took them. In high school, I guess we were 'cooler' then, and drama became 'theatre'.
When I entered college, I declared as a Musical Theatre Major. Apparently I was not too shabby in the acting department, but my singing was not something for which I had never had training. I was incredibly, overly nervous about it. At the end of freshman year, each MT student had to pass an audition to continue in the program. (I cringe even now thinking of mine.) One professor actually wrote on my sheet that I should find something else to do because I had no future in musical theatre.
I abandoned my dream.
Ten years and several lifetimes later, I went back to college and happened to get a part in a play. For the next five-six years, I got a lot of parts in a lot of plays.
Do you see?
I had a TEN YEAR DERAILMENT in a 'resolution'. And I went back. And I took it up again. It was worth it!
Do you know something?
YOU CAN TOO!
