i like to conquer my fears

Hubby is pretty much going to be MIA when it comes to taking my photos this week, which means I need to get creative.
Today my idea of creativity was taking photos in the guest bathroom. A skill I am learning to master, but in a new environment. My photo location = creative.

Now onto my title - that is right, I like to conquer my fears. Today this meant speaking to a class of college freshman. I was the guest speaker at my alma mater for an Intro to Social Work class. I was talking about working with the elderly population, since that is what I do.
A friend of mine asked me back in August if I would do this, of course I said yes. And then completely forgot about it. Yesterday she sent me a FB message reminding me that I was scheduled to speak tomorrow (which was today).
I instantly got butterflies.
But really I think it may have been better that I forgot because I only had one night to stress about it instead of weeks or months.
After all is said and done, it went really well. I actually really like public speaking, but I always get super nervous before hand. And I think I was more nervous because it was a bunch of students, who could potentially snore me out of the room if I was a complete failure. But I wasn't, I conquered my fear. So just like my hubby, I am a champion! haha

p.s. these photos really made me laugh because they are all the exact same, only slightly different. i feel a little conceited looking at them, but really i am not - i swear. i think i am a huge dork. oh and then i decided to throw in a random shoe photo. lol

p.s.s. please ignore the wig package on the counter. the store had all their halloween stuff 90% off, so i got that bad boy for 50 cents!!

OOH! I'm so glad it went well for you! I HATE public speaking. Hate it.
So I'm glad you only had ONE night to stress. Way to be awesome when hubs isn't there to assist! Jeeze, I don't know WHAT I'd do!

I thought you were going to say that your biggest fear was belting sweaters, because that is seriously one of mine. I love the look but can't pull it off!

good luck with your speech!
