When it comes to confidence, I was born with an extra amount. I have always been an interpreter. I took every opportunity I could find to sing and dance in front of my family and my parents’ friends. I was born a diva.
Like grandmother, like granddaughter
My granddaughter is a chip off the old block. Although she has recently become a little shy when it comes to performing in front of a small crowd of adoring fans, she will still offer us her talent from time to time.
As a toddler, she wouldn’t hold anything back. She used to sing all the time, and if you gave her a mirror and a hairbrush, she would turn it on. If you added a hair dryer wind turbine, its inner diva would take over. I love that she loves herself so much. She does it again

Have fun and let go
She hadn’t yet felt any embarrassment or fear of rejection. You know, it’s a shame that we feel these things, but it’s true.
If only we could just let go and not care what people think. Just sing and dance like no one is watching, even if they are.
I think sometimes as adults we just forget to have fun. We don’t laugh and we don’t let go enough. So next time you’re in the bathroom, grab a hairbrush, turn on the hair dryer, and let your dive go.
