Sometimes I really love pretending I'm a rockstar. Sure we are a little local coverband with really big sound, but I still feel like I'm free to do what I want while on stage. It makes me feel like I can overcome anything.
You have to understand: I have terrible stage fright. It's part of the reason I am so obsessed with karaoke. Helped me get over it a bit. Having a band behind you helps a lot. I know that if at any moment I lose my way, the guys are right there to point me in the right direction. We really are a team. The feeling you get when everything works out is fantastic, too.
That is the rockstar moment.
The feeling you get when all the work you did paid off. Whether it is playing on stage, climbing a mountain, teaching at an orphanage, winning a game, getting that account, realizing you are in love, running through a fountain, riding your first rollercoaster, having a shark encounter, finishing a really great book, finding that perfect shade of red lipstick, watching your best friend marry: these are all rockstar moments.
Have you had any rockstar moments lately?
