Get Over Yourself

I was given the opportunity to do something yesterday, something that is out-of-the-ordinary, but I passed.  I let my nerves take over and I just couldn't push through the shortness of breath and the flop sweat. 

How old am I?!?  What is my problem???

I was asked to be in an info-mercial.  They would have wardrobe, make-up the whole bit, but... I just panicked.  'Um... no thank you', was my reply.

I'm sure I could have rocked those khaki pants and that sweater set.  Perhaps I could have worn pearls.   Hair spray would be a must, this summer weather is making my hair frizz something crazy.

But I won't worry about it any more.  When I see the info-mercial during a late-night of drinking wine and lounging in my sweats I will toast the brave woman who took my place. 

I hope I get over myself someday.

  1. wow!!! In the words of Susan Lucci "It's an honor to be nominated" right? :)

  2. I was asked to do a pizza commercial when I was a kid. I was too shy and thought, "of course...pick the fat kid to eat pizza in front of the world!" Now I regret it. I bet you would have looked great! Too late to change your mind? Ya only live once!

  3. You know what? Why not flip this on its ear? Someone thought you were so beautiful inside and out, you'd be perfect for TV. What a huge compliment! Not everyone can say that.
    Enjoy that part of it! :)

  4. That's so cool that you were asked! Even as an adult it is often really hard to get over situations that make us uncomfortable...you're not alone!

  5. I am the same way too, I think it's just people are different and I kinda just let myself pass and try not to think about it later...

  6. Bless you heart, Ann. I've passed up a million great opportunities, it seems. Let's make a pact to be fearless from here on out, okay?
