The abandoned costume told its story of disappointment and disillusionment. The audition had not gone as expected. Instead dreams and hopes had been shattered with the cruel words of the decision makers. Months of hard work and late nights had been crushed by their mockery. Tonight would be one of self-pity – it was allowed. But tomorrow would be another day and, with it, the abandoned costume and dreams would be picked up and cared for again. Auditioning was not easy and yet, when accepted, one more step is taken towards achieving the Dream.

Would you be able to audition?

  1. I tried out for a few things during my life, and a lot of times I was not selected. Great story Colline, after trying and not being afraid to try something new I had my share of successes. I miss you my sister! Have a beautiful Sunday!


    1. It is hard not to give up – and yet we need to push through the rejection and disappointment in order to finally succeed.
      May you have a blessed Sunday too Wendell 🙂
