What a Stress

Yesterday, I woke up to feeling very sick to my stomach and I knew exactly why. I knew that I was going to have to speak last night at the Young Women Stake Leadership meeting. I still didn't know exactly to say what I wanted to about repentance and be able to do it in five minutes. You would think that I would get used to this since how I have to present all the time in school and I had to get up in front of people all the time as RS president but for some reason this time was even worse.

I just have to tell you that I actually am alive, even though I really didn't think I would make it and I know it wasn't one of my greatest talks but it is over with and there is the thought that if it was really awful they won't ask me to speak again.

I keep waiting for it to get easier but I think that will have to wait for a different life time, at least for ME.

I know that you don't give yourself enough credit. I've heard you speak before. And even though I wasn't there last night, I KNOW it was a fantastic talk.

I can totally relate. Don't know why I get so nervous in front of people, but that's how it goes. Glad for you that it's over. :)

It IS hard to talk in front of people, especially when the topic is gospel-related, but I'm sure you did great!! S'okay to be nervous--you did it anyway!

PS
Joel raved over the pumpkin cobbler. He said it was one of the most divine things he has ever eaten. :)

Hey there! Just one more thing we have in common!!! It's always nice to just take a big breather when it's over and give yourself a treat of some sort :0 you deserve it.
