I tried out for a play for the first time since third grade today... aahh!! I borrowed these quotes (by Eleanor Roosevelt) from another spark blog. They have helped me put this experience in perspective:
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along."
"You must do the things you think you cannot do."
"I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experience behind him."
"People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built."
"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."
