How ridiculous do you ever allow yourself to be? This picture startles me, yet I had to save it when I came across it. I can’t imagine myself comfortably making a goofy facial expression just to be funny. I’ve always admired my friends that could act goofy at the drop of a hat, get up and act out comedic skits to tell a story. Since I can remember, I’ve always been fairly reserved. And unfortunately, my stoicism has only increased. I have been reflecting a lot on how I need to loosen up the perfectionism, relax into not being afraid to mess up. I will soon be performing in front of a crowd(s) sharing music and though that actual act doesnt scare me, there is an extra freedom in being really raw, in showing the imperfections.
