We All Have A Little Shania Twain In Us

Last night, I went with my friend, Emilee, to see Shania Twain & Gavin Degraw in concert. IT WAS AWESOME. I was never a huge Shania fan like Emilee, but I was expecting great things from this concert. I also really love Gavin Degraw (who opened for Shania) & he did absolutely fantastic. His voice is even better live. I realized though, while I was at the concert, that we all have a little Shania Twain in us. You may be asking yourself, "What do you mean I have a little Shania Twain in me?!" Let me answer that question for you.

When Shania came out to perform, she started singing & honestly, I thought to myself, "She doesn't sound all that great anymore. She's just a country singer that's been off for a little too long & is trying to make a comeback to prove to herself that she's still got it now that she's older." After she started singing her second song though, I realized how wrong I was about her. She's still got it, folks!

We all have a little Shania in us because a lot of us think that we can't do things we used to anymore. For example, I used to play basketball, & although I wasn't that great, I was pretty decent. Now when the opportunity arises for me to play for fun, I hesitate to shoot the ball because I'm afraid that I don't have what it takes anymore. But every now & then, I prove myself wrong with a nice "swoosh" into the basketball goal.

My point is, don't give up. A lot of us think that we're too old to do something or even though we used to do it, we don't have what it takes anymore. You shouldn't give up on something that you enjoy doing. Shania didn't! And she looked amazing & sang her heart out on stage doing it. 

So don't be a quitter. Don't give up on your dreams. And remember, if Shania Twain can do it & not give up, so can you.

Here's some pictures that you can "enjoy" from the concert last night (with poor iPhone quality in a bad lit arena)! :)
