Improv Class Appears to be Working.
I'm still in my head but giving myself permission to speak freely without over thinking is an evolving process. It's not going to happen overnight. In improv class it has become easier each week. I think a lot of that has been due to familiarity with the team (other students). As we become accustomed to each other, our thought processes and personalities, we find ourselves becoming more spontaneous and not having to think about our responses. For me that is exactly how I interpret things. Again, I could be over thinking this, but it gives me pleasure knowing that I am, at times, able to just be me. Unfortunately, there are always going to be those “foot in mouth” moments when you say something that you wish you hadn't. I guess that comes with the territory.
