Wow. Thank you all so much. Your responses had ME in tears. Good tears though!
Thanks for reading about my little victory and watching. It's been a long time since I've done this and your encouragement is really helpful.
Thank you Thinkfit! I'm really working on being a more courageous person.. How is your jogging/walking going? I've had a cold so had a few off days, but hoping to start up again after the weekend.
Bargoo- I knew mama Cass, but I looked up Kate Smith and WOW! Beautiful voice! I can't believe I'd never heard of her! Thanks for turning me onto her.
Thank you so much NorthernChick, I really appreciate your words. I think maybe, I want to shine now, I've been in hiding for a while
I'm hoping I can get my fiance to take a video this Saturday so I can share.
Elvislover, HUGS! I feel the the same way about you! Some of the things you post/write have really helped me feel like I am not alone in these struggles. I never realized how many people battle with the EXACT same thoughts I do, and even though they are facing their own challenges, they reach out and give encouragement to others. YOU are an inspiration!
GMNEVO- Engineering, WOW! That is very cool. I too ended up traveling down a very different educational path, microbiology. I'm glad you found a way to still be involved in music and use your abilities in flute and piano, that gives me hope! I'm finding that performing without all the pressure I had before is actually more enjoyable, I hope I can find a way to fit it into my life more regularly.

Thank you Tea2, it's been a long process, but right now I'm feeling like I'm stepping out into the light...it's feeling good!
Love to you all, and thank you for inspiring and motivating me! I can't wait to be witness your continued successes, and amazing achievements!
