These infamous words spoken by our beloved Disney princess, Pocahontas, seem to be pertinent to Team Cool Kid’s upcoming adventure with Samsung as Mobile Explorers in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Life has been pretty hectic and exciting the last few weeks, what with amazing “Real Cool Club” episodes, crazy shooting schedules, and this amazing competition. That was until last night when it all sank in.
I’m scared. Scared of the competition. Scared of what Samsung has in store for us. Scared of travelling to a city I should know better than I do. Scared of seeing what Lindsay’s REALLY like at 5am. Scared of failure.
That’s the biggy and one that plagues us all. It’s fear that controls peoples determination and actions in life. If I let fear control me, I wouldn’t be living in LA, wouldn’t have created The Real Cool Club, wouldn’t be sitting in LAX right now about to board a flight to Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.
I now realize that I cannot predict the outcome of this competition. I cannot know how my life will change over the next 20 days. I cannot forsee anything past this very moment. I can only sit back, have fun and be excited to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Stay tuned to find out what lies “Just Around The Riverbend”.
I can’t believe I quoted Pocahontas for my blog. Yeah I want to punch my face too.
