Tonight I was reminded how much I love to perform on stage in front of an audience.
For me, it is the ultimate in being seen and validated.
I love to sing on stage, act and dance. I might not be the best, or the most talented, but I love the experience.
the applause, the laughs, the nods, the tears.
It all feeds something inside me.
There is a thrill, an excitement.
I'm not afraid. It doesn't scare me to get up there.
I know I am surrounded by love and friendship and acceptance.
I am talented, and I am thankful.
