For some karaoke is chance to let loose, relax and pretend to be a rock star. For others, it makes their skin crawl.
So of course, MTV had to make a show based on karaoke. Say What? Karaoke aired from 1998-2003. The premise of the show was that contestants sung karaoke in front of celebrity judges. As with any reality competition show, the contestants are judged and one is named the winner.
Say What? Karaoke is one of those shows that you watch when your a certain age. While I certainly watched it when I was in my late teens and early 20’s, I wouldn’t watch it now.
Life, if nothing else, is a series of curve-balls. When we think we know what is coming, a curve-ball comes out of nowhere.
I experienced one of those curve-balls today. While I cannot get into the specifics of this curve-ball, I will say that at the very least, it has thrown me for a loop.
Part of me knows that this is an opportunity to branch out and grow beyond my current circumstances. There is the potential option to stay where I am, but I am at the point where I am ready to step out of my comfort zone.
However, there is another part of me that is to be honest, scare sh*tless. I am the type of person who relies on the familiar, on the expected aspects of life. Not knowing what is coming around the bend makes me uncomfortable and extremely anxious. But the truth is that no one knows what is coming around the bend. We may think we know, but we don’t.
I am a believer in both fate and hard work. I also believe that our creator does not give us anything more than we can handle.
This too shall pass, but at the moment, this curve-ball is present and accounted for in my life.
