When given the chance…

April 19, 2009

Thank goodness for Twitter trends showing up right there on my Twitter stream homepage. Otherwise, I may never have heard about Susan Boyle. OK, that’s not entirely true as many people NOT on Twitter know who she is. Let me help educate the masses.

THIS is Susan Boyle:

*Confession–I just stopped to watch this video AGAIN. Mostly to see the judges and crowds reaction when she started singing.

My mama always said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and I don’t think it was just because she was a librarian. I always try to see the good in people. This can sometimes be a fault as many people don’t turn out to be who I think they are, but I at least give them the shot to begin with. I don’t judge them and try not to let any preconceived notions overshadow who they truly are.

Susan Boyle is a great testiment of giving people a chance. You never know what’s truly beneath the surface. Don’t allow your judgement to blind you to seeing truly amazing talent right in front of you.

Susan’s story also proves it’s never too late to pursue your dream. She’s 42 and has this amazing talent that’s just being discovered. She could have easily said she was past her prime, but no…her prime is just beginning.

Here’s to Susan Boyle, chasing dreams and keeping an open mind.

*Cheers!

    “When Susan Boyle sang… the world stood still..”

    Like an angel plucking the string of a harp, her song struck a heart chord that could be felt around the world. When Susan Boyle sang on the stage of Britain’s Got Talent, the world stood still. Young and old, successful or struggling, popular or outcast, happy or sad. We were all covered in the same blanket of hope, love, and joy. We all heard the same heart song. With one breath, our potential was unleashed, our perceptions were destroyed, and a new net of dreams were cast over us.

    You’re absolutely right. It’s the ‘root for the underdog’ feeling. Not to mention she has a beautiful voice and is very talented. Thanks for the help with putting in to words why the world is memorized with Susan Boyle.
