The song "Shine" was performed by Black Gold on "So You Think You Can Dance" tonight. I like the song. As I listened, however, I again doubted my ability to shine. I've been feeling more hopeful about my abilities and possibilities lately and then the doubt comes back. I guess that's o.k. but it does leave me less hopeful. What if I simply never do much at all? What if I don't develop my abilities, whatever they are, like so many women before me? What if I do not shine? For so very long, I've wanted to fulfill my potential. I believe so very much in people fulfilling their potentials. Why hasn't it happened? Really. It gets to be very frustrating.
By the way, Ellen Degeneres was on "So You Think You Can Dance" and she did so well! Dancing! I like her even more now.
And all the kids (well, kids to me) on that show display passion and dedication and fun and artistry. Their work is inspiring. Congratulations to the winner and congratulations to all who follow their passions and shine.
