It’s A Dream Come True!
I can remember walking into my high school gym, and being amazed by the transformation that took place in little under an hour. My gym had been changed into a stage for what looked like a rock concert. I bounced in my seat when the music started, and the lights began to flash as the band ran out. Little did I know, it was no ordinary rock concert. It was a one hour motivational speaking presentation, where personal stories were shared with everyone. The stories touched the hearts of many, and had me talking about it for weeks after.
Now, three years later, I found myself lying on the stage floor, peeking under the curtains on the other side of the stage. I watched the kids faces light up as the lights were dimmed at the start of the intro video. It was a phenomenal feeling to be able to relate to what they were feeling; not that long ago, I was in the audience feeling that same excitement. I couldn’t believe, and still can’t, that I am a part of something as huge as LiveDifferent (formerly Absolute)’s Think Day presentation. When people say “it’s a dream come true” many people laugh because it is such an overused phrase, but sitting in my high school that day, I spent every second of the show thinking about what it would be like to be the one up there on the stage. And now I am.
These past couple weeks, we’ve spent countless hours training and preparing our personal stories, getting them ready to do our East Coast tour with “Hearts in Stereo”. Weeks ago, when we started, I had no idea how we were going to make it as amazing as the show I saw at my high school. I think Team 2’s hard work has paid off and after having our first show today, I am so excited to see what the rest of tour will bring.
