If you don’t have butterflies, it’s because you know you have no chance. ~Paul Azinger, professional golfer
maybe this is why it is before dawn and i am already up for the day.
maybe this is why my mind began racing at 4:51, waking me up, forcing me to get out of bed.
maybe this is why i cannot wait until 9:30am.
maybe this is why i feel all gittery…and even feel my hands physically shaking.
maybe this is why i’ve already planned for my shift, for when i wear the black apron, for when i close the store.
maybe this is why i’ve got my game face on and that mentality as well.
maybe this is why i have so much nervous energy…and it is 5:21am.
maybe this is why.
maybe i feel like i’ve got a chance…
to see what i can do,
to try something new,
and to see where it takes me.
maybe i feel like we’ve got a huge chance–even more than a chance–to prove ourselves, to accomplish our goal, and even to exceed those expectations.
here we go.
