Doing something new

I had to give a speech tonight for work. It was only a 3-5 minute thing. I have not done much public speaking so tonight was really one of my first opportunities to give a speech. In the past I have avoided public speaking for many reasons. One of the main reasons, of course was, self-confidence. My mother had also done a number on my self-esteem because of my weight. She once inferred that I did not get a job because I would have contact with the public. This was among the many negative messages my mother gave me as I was growing up. Most of all she said I would never be successful because I was fat. She can eat her words today because I gave an amazing speech that was powerful and passionate which, compelled some people to connect with our organization.

  1. Kudos to you!

  2. That is awesome! Eventually, we have to just tell that mother – internally, not necessarily to their faces! – to just fuck off! You are your own woman now!
