I dropped my car off to the mechanical shop after work yesterday. The owner will call me today to let me know what’s wrong with it. I hope it won’t cost me an arm and a leg to fix it! 🤣
Today is Thursday already! It seems so fast this week. Perhaps, I feel this way because I’m nervous about the big speech? A few random thoughts crept into my head earlier: What if I freak out and freeze? What if I forget to speak English? (When I was too nervous in the past, I forgot how to speak English correctly. I sounded like I just got off the boat.) What if ...? However, a positive voice interfered: Don't worry too much. Go over the seven tips I shared with my coworkers on public speaking. Also, pray. It works every time.
From what I have heard, every person does live performance is nervous before he/she gets on a stage. It’s good to feel a bit of it, but a skillful ones turn their nervousness into powerful performances. I have done my job by practicing my speech almost every day for the last two weeks. I got this 😊
I have learned to appreciate what I have or not-yet have. This takes practices. I tend to lean on the negative self-talk a lot before. By feeding my brain with positive thoughts have made no room for the negative ones. I am happy. I am content. I’m prosperous. I’m appreciative of this life. Thank You! 🙂
