Musings of a Miss

Saturday was the Miss Delaware First Orientation meaning that my year as Miss Delaware has only two months left.  A melancholy feeling rushed over me when I first stepped into the building but seeing the hopeful faces reminded me of the first time I stepped into first orientation myself.  Frightened and intimidated, I stood up, introduced my self, mistakenly introduced my mentor, Laura Moylan, and sat down flustered.  Seeing the 2014 Miss Delaware faces gave me a sense of excitement for the future Miss Delaware. 

The journey for these new girls will be a tough one but will completely change their lives as it did mine.  I have a few small bits of advice for the girls competing.

1.  Practice your talent a little bit every day
                   Talent can be daunting if you don't know it like the back of your hand.  
You should hate to love your talent

2.  Know about the State of Delaware and current events.  
You don't have to expert but if asked know the basics 
and have a concise opinion on the issues. 
Learn fun facts and places to go and see in Delaware.  
You can't be Miss Delaware if you aren't a spokesperson for the state!

3.  Eat Healthily
There are many diets for pageant girls but my favorite is to eat not for taste but for fuel.  
Plan your meals so that you get the proper amount of greens, fruits, veggies, and protein.
I like to eat the rainbow (have each food on my plate a different color aka no plate full of brown foods)  and juicing!

4.   Workout
15 minutes a day can make a world of diffence.  
Can't get to the gym?  Body weight and a yoga mat are all you need.

5.  Work on your spirit.
Being in a pageant takes confidence and and a strong center.  
Find a way to ground yourself and improve your confidence.

Happy beginning of a new adventure!
