What my recital taught me...

   via

     Hi guys! I know it's been a while since I've written a post on A Real Girl. But life has been crazy lately. But one of the things that was keeping me busy the most was my piano and voice recital. Hearing everyone's beautiful voices and talents was so much fun.

     It was clear that each person had a unique talent and loved to show it. But most of all when they where onstage they were being themselves, in their own way. Each person there had an amazing time on stage expressing themselves, and in the audience everyone supported them and made them feel good.  No one could make the people being themselves feel like they where awful because talent comes from the heart not the head.

     But at the start its a little hard to perform because you're afraid. When I started to sing I had really bad stage fright. But I really loved singing. So I told myself that it's just a crowd full of people I don't know. So I went up on stage and sang. Only at the beginning of the song my little brother Alex walks across the room with his fingers buried deep in his ears. That's what I get for having an 8 year old brother. Anyways, I start to sing and the microphone started to have feed back. But I just kept singing. And I realized no preformance would ever go that awful again. By moving forward and not letting the glitches get in my way, I had one of the best performances I ever had. And the amount of compliments I got for being able to move through the song smoothly made me feel like I was on top of the world.

So take it from me, it's definitely worth it to show your talents to the world. It's scary, but it's worth it. :)

Natural Beauty (literally)

sorry for the bad quality of these photos (i accidentally had my camera on the video setting lol)

Yesterday I was lucky enough to go on a field trip to the Museum of Natural History in NYC. 

Each thing I saw in the museum was incredibly beautiful in it's own way; and every thing was very different. This really opened my eyes to how in life, it's the same way. Everything and every one is beautiful and yet we are all different. 

The section that all of the girls in my class were all over, was the Hall of Gems. These gems were different colors, different shapes, sizes, etc and yet there was not an "ugly" one in sight. Because who looks at a gem, and ever calls a gem "ugly"? 

Well, guess what, girls come in different shapes and sizes just like gems do, yet why are people so quick to call so many girls "ugly"?  I think that it's time we start treating one another as if we are all gems, because we are.  

Some of us are small, some of us our big, some of us are shiny and polished with makeup and some of us just aren't. But at the end of the day, we are all real girls, just like those gems are real gems. They weren't cut up and polished and shined plated in jewelry from Tiffany's, they were real, natural, gems. 

And you know what? They were even more beautiful than any piece of jewelry I have ever seen.

So, if you are really into beautiful things, like I am, then do yourself a favor and pay a visit to the Hall of Gems. But hey! If you don't live quite close enough to the city to go, don't worry, you can just look in the mirror and see something just as beautiful.
