Survived the speaking engagement!

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Today was such a great day! Speaking to the group was hard, but not as hard as I imagined. Glad it's over. Maybe next time (and unfortunately there WILL be a next time) it won't be as hard.

In addition to completing the speech, I got a new cell phone for free...mine stopped working a week ago...my company gave me a new laptop cause mine was on the blink and to make the day even sweeter, my team and I got a beautiful letter of recognition from our association president and the letter was read to my entire company...wow!!!

Good night Sparkies!!

Conquering the fear of public speaking

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

I can't begin to tell you how many times I have been forced to speak in public and for my job, but it never gets any easier for me. Tomorrow morning I have to speak in front of about 20 people and I am already having heart palpitations over it! Ridiculous! My job requires me to attend Toastmasters every 2 weeks as a way to become more comfortable with presenting to an audience and I've been going to these meetings for 3 years now and still dread it every time. I know that the biggest part of my fear is that I am uncomfortable with the way I look and being in front of people is like being in the spotlight. I know I'll get through it...I always do...but you know it's pretty bad when you wish for a flat tire...or a stomach virus...or something else to happen so that you can get out of it!!

    Thinking of you! Hope it goes well! I hate public speaking also but don't have to do it often!

    Good luck, I hope it goes well!
I still am not a fan of public speaking. I use to have to do it all the time in my old job. Every time I could feel my face turning bright red. That just made it worse.

    You will do great tomorrow!! I understand the nerves-I always had them on the first day of class when I was teaching or whenever I get observed.

I really get nervous when I teach Zumba but I am working on my courage.

Sleep tight, and good luck!! emoticon

Do you watch the MTV show "Jersey Shore"?

Sunday, January 29, 2012

If so, you'll recognize these sights. We took a ride yesterday to Seaside Heights, NJ to show my daughter's college friends where the show is filmed.




They had such a good time.

    I have never watched the show, but I am well aware of Snooki and The Situation. I LOVE the shore, even though I don't live there. emoticon

On the beach in January???

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Absolutely beautiful weather today...can't believe we took our shoes off and walked on the beach in January in New Jersey. So awesome. Felt so good to stick my feet in cold sand. Hope to have a few pictures to post tomorrow.

Night all.
