As some of you know, once I started writing,
I started getting invited to speak publicly.
While I loved that God was opening new doors for me to walk through
those doors seemed to launch me into a high state of anxiety that I
had never felt before.
I became a virtual sweat factory. Not a pretty picture I know.
This was also accompanied by some severe knotting of the stomach
muscles and a lovely case of cotton mouth.
Clearly, I am enchanting right before I have to get up and talk.
But now that I have been speaking for 3 years,
it has been slowly.....very slowly...been getting better.
Once I get going, the perspiration seems to level off and I
get to enjoy the connection of sharing with the folks I am speaking too.
This has been a great development.
But thanks to a new discovery on youtube,
I think my nervous days are over.
Going forward I will not have to be nervous or sweaty before I speak
because I can just get up on stage and practice this set of stress releasing exercises
and everything will apparently level out.
This has revolutionized everything. Thank you, Tim Hawkins, you are my hero!
