Spark Conference 2016

I'm doing it all over again... I will be presenting some of my original artwork at the SPARK Women's Leadership Conference tomorrow. I really love to raise my hand and say YES to new experiences that challenge me to grow past my comfort zone. I am actually super excited for all the speakers and sessions I get to participate in AFTER I rock my own five minutes on stage.

So this is what I was up to yesterday...

 My mom believes in me, she told me on my social media feed - YAY!!

But as my scheduled five minute presentation inches closer - only one more sleep (and early morning wardrobe and hairstyle panic) away - I am starting to feel a little anxious. But I'm going to be kind to myself tonight, and go to bed early for once in the last month. The important part is that I am sharing my work, and presenting to a large crowd for only the SECOND time in my life. Baby steps. But speaking at all those public tours and media scrums at the #cityfsjpassivehouse this year has surely helped me through my public speaking fears more than I give myself credit for...

 

 Again, my mom. LOVE HER.

Conveniently I was invited to a friends place for ladies wine night this evening - and what some of my favorite women don't know yet is that I may forego the wine (because I need to sleep tonight... let's not start any rumours here, lol!) and hold them hostage for a dress rehearsal of my presentation once or twice before I slip out the back door.

Alright, signing off now - If you see me before 9:10am tomorrow I'll try not to act stressed and distant, BUT after 9:15 am please come say Hi! I'm sure I'll be giddy with delight after having taken one more BOLD step forward in sharing my work with the world!
