just fine

 

it's funny how one thing can undo me.

how coffee loses its taste and the sunrise loses its brilliance when clouded.

i've got a presentation today. a short, no-longer-than-three-minutes-please little impromptu speech.

and i've practiced. for robert. for pablo (who provided lots of constructive criticism), and for my co-workers.and i drove to work in the dark this morning, praying for an elusive confidence the whole time.

i was born nervous, to a nervous father. i'm reminded every time i skirt the telephone or think up another word to replace the one not quite out of my mouth.

so i will drive. to the big city two hours away. with my sweet sister in tow and hope against all odds that the fluency fairy will visit at approximately 6:15 p.m.

prayers, happy thoughts, well wishes, good vibes, please?

thank you.

" - think up another word to replace the one not quite out of my mouth."
Wow, that's so me! I wonder if your moon is in Gemini too?! I am generally a good communicator, but when you throw in nerves to the equation, I may as well just try to speak a different language. I hated presentations in college. I flubed up so many akward times, but it happens.

I'm sure if you've practised that much, you'll do fantabulous!! :D Best wishes, and be confident!!

Sometimes I wish my fingers could do the talking.. I write (type) much better than I speak... But I guess that's a good thing, otherwise who knows what kind of madness would escape from these lips...

Let us know how it goes C!
You're gonna do greeeatt!

Good vibes your way -- I'm assuming the presentation is over, so hopefully these are "relax, you did fine" vibes. You would get a phone call or friendly text from all of us. :)

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

i know how these types of presentations rock you to the core love but i also know how many things and times you've overcome to feel proud of how you handled each one. the fact you even care so much signals the kind of person you are. genuine, thoughtful and someone who any company would be lucky to have on their side!! i hope this one went off without any hitches but even if it wasn't what you'd hoped i know you did the very best you could. it's all we can do, right?! many blessings!!! xoox ♥
