I am a relatively practical girl and am rarely impressed with stuff the media puts out - but something draws me to this particular venue. I guess it brings up in me some very strong beliefs and oppinions. They go something like this:
- If you are willing to try, good things come your way (even if you don't win).
- A young farmer from the middle of nowhere can take a chance, sing his heart out and get noticed in a place that is unfamiliar and out of his comfort zone--stuff that births admiration.
- Do your best, try hard, breathe through the anxiety, take a risk, and leave with grace- whether you are accepted or rejected.
I don't know about you, but I am rooting for these brave individuals and I have esteem for anyone who tried (however weird they may be). I could do worse than living by some of these principles.
