As I mentioned in previous posts, I auditioned to perform the Nutcracker with the Moscow Ballet and made the audition. Sadly, I got a small part for younger girls simply because I am a small person (barely grazing five foot at 13 years old). The rehearsals have been fun and easy, and it will be an honor, a once in a lifetime opportunity, to even be in it, but still. At my old dance school, I was kind of the superstar, being so small but good. It’s a bit of a shock to the system to go from being Sugar Plum Fairy (a main character and challenging part) to being a mouse (small part, as a soldier in the evil army). I supremely dislike being underestimated, but it happens all the time. Yesterday, as I was having a pity party watching the “big girls” leave their class, I was struck by a revelation. I don’t always have to be the center of attention. It could do me some good to step back out of the limelight. Not everyone has to know my skills, and it won’t even be for a semester. I need to be humble. Perhaps the Lord is testing me to see how I’d handle being in the background; well, so far, I’ve bombed it. Now suck it up and be an awesome mouse.
A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. -Proverbs 29:23, KJV
