The big scary meeting is today. Deep breath. I am prepared, as well as I can be without actually knowing the agenda, but my stomach is completely freaking out. It will not listen to my demands to settle down. My first thought is, “I need a cup of coffee to calm down.” Then I remember that coffee is most likely part of the problem. Ugh. What do people do to settle nerves? Alcohol? If I had even half a glass of wine I would completely not care about the meeting, but it’s probably best if I do not arrive to the big scary meeting intoxicated. Seriously, what is the magic bean?
Last summer I took a public speaking class. My first assignment was to give a 3 minute speech about making applesauce. I FREAKED out. Now, I have no idea why. It seems silly to me now that I was so nervous, but I am feeling the same way now. I know when it was over I will laugh at how nervous I was feeling, but that doesn’t help me now to not feel it. Deep breath. In. Out. Repeat.
Still freaking out.
