1. I stopped and took a deep breath. I then concentrated on breathing for a few seconds
2. I reminded myself that it was ok to ask for help and that I did not have to know how to do everything perfectly. (The words we speak to ourselves are very important and will affect how we act)
3. I visualized the meeting going very smoothly and it did.
It didn't take long to do the above three things but it helped so much. Recognizing what I was feeling and then doing something about it always makes a difference for me and those I work with. Hopefully, these three steps can help you as well.
Friday is the day I share a joyful moment that happened during the week. Last night I went to a book club for the first time. The other women had all worked together for years and had a long history together. Yet, they made me feel very welcome and I had a lovely time. I am so grateful for all of the people in my life who are reaching out to share their special moments with me. What was your moment of joy?
When you share your dreams and your talent, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
