My Spark Spirit

Thursday, August 01, 2013

Yesterday was tough. I made my first formal presentation at a company. I didn't think I was nervous, but I sweated through my clothes. It was literally pouring off my face. Not cute.

I'm not normally that nervous. But I am learning that I need to be much more self-aware. My body was clearly telling my mind something it didn't want to admit: showing a product in a formal setting for the first time is nerve wracking.

I was so happy to get home and see responses to my last blog. I just knew that I could count on my Spark Friends -- old and new -- to send me positive thoughts and encouragement. I especially want to give a shout-out to BREWHOUSE BILL and GRACEFUL LIFE. You guys really stepped up to the plate yesterday and reminded me that I can do this.

Luckily my next big presentation isn't until next week, so I have time to regroup.

THANKS SPARKERS!!!!!!! I'm keeping the faith.

I've been off the radar because I was using Google Reader to suscribe to SparkPeople blogs. When it stopped operation, I lost my subscriptions. I'll have to go back and read your blogs to see what you are up to.

How is your shoulder?

    Awe! I sweat a lot too, and stress definitely exacerbates the issue! I'm glad that you get some time to pull yourself together! Because with a little time, patience and perserverance, ANYTHING is possible!!!!

Good LUCK next week!!!!
