scared....

I am getting read to do my very first (in quite a few years) live presentation on Tuesday...Furiously jotting down notes, pulling out old and new journals, gathering supplies.......and worried that no one will find what I have to say is interesting, I will not have enough to talk about, and that I'll be laughed out of the room.... MUST. BE. BRAVE.....
Keep your fingers crossed for me.......

You'll do great Natalya!
Outline it. gather the goods and then jot down three key words (on your hand sometimes works best for me) the rest will flow. Those three words can become touchpoints for you or a rallying cry whichever you feel most uncomfortable. If you are talking about something you know the rest comes easy. good luck!

Natalya! You are going to be wonderful! It looks like you are totally prepared and organized. Just visualize yourself feeling confident and comfortable and creative. I wish I could be there!

Being scared is a good thing. Nothing worse than being over-confidant and bombing! LOL

Best of luck. I'm sure you'll do just fine. You ARE a brave and confident woman with valid ideas to share. :-) My fingers are crossed for you just for added measure.

There will be quite a few familiar faces in the crowd and everyone who's there wants to be there and they're all interested in what you have to say.

You're going to wow them! The best of luck, my friend!!

Do the people you'll be presenting to HAVE to be there? probably not, probably they're there because they are interested in what you haver to tell them. If you remind yourself of that you'll be OK. Then, go on and enjoy having an audience waiting for you.

Oh how I wish I could be there! You will do great! You and your artwork are so interesting that I think your only worry will be to cut off questions at the end.;-) Take care and remember, we are all rooting for you.

You're a natural..just say and do when the thoughts hit you! Winging it works best! Your samples are great (based on your DVD, which I love!) and show your work so well.
