You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......
People want to be needed, I found that out too

i am nervous too....but more excited than nervous.....

i have performed before....but not for as big of a crowd as there will be this weekend....

the crowd will be so impressed with our mad wrapping skillz that you will forget that you are nervous.....


Once in a while you get shown the light
in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Posted:It's my first public performance on Friday, I made a thread about this somewhere and most people just told me to smile and try to ignore the crowd! I'm so nervous about tomorrow!

.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.
