Shy, small and quiet, but for 2 minutes and 30 seconds of your life you ooze bravery and excellence. You’ve worked for this moment for a year, maybe even more that that. It’s your time to shine. Not just for you, but your team mates too.
There comes a time when you have to forget everything and let auto pilot guide you while you are embarrassingly confident, throwing everything you’ve got into this one moment. 2 minutes and 30 seconds. It’s all you’ve got.
I’m talking about cheerleading. Even if, like me, you’re as quiet as a mouse and extremely shy, you can do it. Performing in front of hundreds of people, because you have the skill. You’ve trained and trained with your team. Suffered bruises, breaks and tears. Now this is your reward.
2 minutes and 30 seconds of bravery, is all it takes.
