Getting back in the groove

Today I performed a magic routine for my co-workers, legitimately, for the first time in 4 months…

Initially, I couldn’t stop shaking for some reason. My voice cracked. My hands were tense. My feet were shifting. I hadn’t felt this nervous since I performed for the hosts of The View last May. Yes, that was a self-plug ;).

But honestly, I was afraid of performing. This time last year, I was so confident in my skills that I could literally approach anyone and perform a magic routine that I’d practiced for countless hours, blindfolded even!

But once I started, I never looked back. We really don’t forget who we used to be; all we need is a gentle reminder.

Maybe I can try acting and musical theater again? It’s been over a year since I’ve been on stage.

Or performing violin? I used to routinely play solos in our high school orchestra since grade 9…

Getting back in the groove of things. It feels scary at first because you fear you might have forgotten how to do things, but once the music kicks in, all you need to do is dance.

Happy 4th of July everyone, even though I am not American. I might be getting my groove on later tonight…
