Hey Journey Group! This weekend we had our usual committee meetings. Everyone in the Slam Poetry Committee has been working really hard on their poems for their non-profit honorees. I have the honor to perform a piece for Hands On Charlotte. When everyone came together in the large room, two slam committe members got to perform in front of everyone! Cole and I were chosen! Once I got up and unfolded my paper, I couldn’t stop shaking, I could feel my heart and head throbbing. I had never written poetry or performed before. When I was finished, I looked up from my paper and was greeted by many smiling faces and clapping hands. I smiled and almost started crying. I had a realization that I can do anything with motivation. Even if I do have a few self limiting thoughts, and for that I am oh so grateful (:
