Cute Bowls and Confidence

This morning I’ll be giving my last presentation of the year.  It’s on Cancer and the Mediterrenean Diet (I can sum it up by saying this: eat your veggies! :mrgreen: ).  Seriously.  So many protective effects against different types of cancers!

Anyways, this feels like a huge accomplishment for me.  I’ve never been one for speaking in front of large groups of people, but I did it 4-times over a period of 4 months.  I was stretched and pulled in every direction, but I feel as if it’s given me a whole new level of confidence.  Just another reminder that it’s okay and good to face what you fear the most sometimes.  It can only make you grow. 😀

In addition to gaining some confidence (while pep-talking myself for the presentation later this morning,) I also indulged in testing out one of my new bowls. :mrgreen:

  • 1 c. milk + 1/2 c. water
  • 1/4 c. oatbran
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • topping: 2 T. Galaxy Granola, 1 T. crushed flax, 1/2 banana sliced

Perfect bowl.  Perfect oats.  Perfect way to start the day. 😀

I’m off to walk, shower, and get myself ready for the day!

Question: Was there ever a time when you overcame your fears and how did you feel about it?  I still have a few things I’m working on as far as this goes, but I can say from personal experience that it’s totally worth stretching yourself in ways you never have! 😀  Honestly, I still have a fear of presenting, but it’s not an uncontrollable fear any more…and it’s such a nice feeling to have control over it. 😀

  1. Yes, the EPIC study is truly epic he he! Definitely agree that making calculated ‘risks’ and pushing through the fear gives so much confidence. I used to be anxious about so many things, (speaking in front of people, being in a position of responsibility, taking blood- you name it!) but doing placements where you can’t avoid doing them has really helped!

  2. I love using new dishes! There is something so satisfying about it. Congratulations on your LAST presentation. I took drama in highschool for about a year, but public speaking is still hard to do for me. I am not a fan of having to put myself out there like that.
