I THINK I did ok; I will find out later this week

I was really excited about going on stage for the first time this year.  We got there early so I could set up…an it is a good thing I did.  There were a few challenges, but I got most of them worked out.  The only thing that was wrong: my mic…it didn’t work!

So I began my talk LOUDLY….but I could stay loud so long.  The 120 people could hear me ok..but their were times it could have been louder.

I must admit, I didn’t do as well as normal:  I got lost a handful of times and I left a few things out.   Even though I have given this same speech over 500 times, I still get lost!  The good news: nobody know what I am going to say…except for Jill…and she DOES let’s me know.  It’s a good thing I like Jill.

They gave me another standing ovation…and I am grateful for that.  Fortunately, I ended strong…but I am still sad that I didn’t give it my best. I guess it shows me I have to work at EVERY speech that I give; speaking doesn’t just naturally happen for me.  I am blessed each time I talk to an audience.
