Remember when I said that I wanted to continue doing things every week that scared me? That forced me out of my comfort zone?
THAT WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA.
See, the thing is that I used to LOVE singing. It made me really happy- it didn’t matter that I wasn’t that good at it, I liked it. And actually, even now, whenever I’m in a good mood, you can catch me quietly humming or singing something. And when I’m drunk, which is like, ULTIMATE HAPPY SHANNON, I don’t STOP singing. Particularly 80s songs.
BUT I pretty much stopped singing years ago when I let my insecurities, anxiety, and negative influences take over my life and destroy my self esteem. So when I started on this whole thing, I knew that singing would have to be one of the first things I tried again.
So, because I am nowhere near ready to sing on my own (and really, you’re probably better off), here’s me and my awesome husband Chris singing “Rivers and Roads” by The Head and the Heart. Chris is also playing guitar in it. And I sound like a kazoo because I’m getting over a cold and am super nasally.
Um… please keep in mind that this is really just to face my fears, more than anything else. So try not to judge to harshly. Or… you know… listen at all. Because just the fact that I POSTED this is a pretty big step, for me.
OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE.
