Adventure Challenge – Day 15: Be Brave

Today is the last day of my current tour. For those of you don’t know, I’m a car trainer/facilitator. I worked all day and drove several hours. I was excited that it was my last day and all fired up to go something exciting (in the studio). When I got to my hotel tonight, the past 10 weeks started to weigh on me a little. It’s been a long haul. I have a sense of relief that this chapter is over and I will get to start a new one. 

When I got to my hotel, I saw that it’s connected to a Casino. I’m not a gambler, but I thought tonight deserved a drink and some time with a slot machine. I checked in and headed for the casino. As soon as I walked in I hit the wall of cigarette smoke that made my eyes water and I started to choke. I changed my mind and headed back to my room. 

Instead, I decided to do something I’ve been avoiding. I often find huge art opportunities that I save, but tend to not apply for them. Mostly because they’re intimidating or I wonder if I even have a shot at it. Tonight I sat down and applied to three. This included submitting proposals and putting myself in that position no one wants to be in, vulnerability. I mean, what if I get a letter saying I wasn’t accepted? And then I laugh. Yeah, what if I do. Nothing changes. I’m in he same boat that I’m in. But if I don’t apply, I won’t know. So for Day 15 Adventure Challenge, I put myself out there. Be brave.
