ONE



Today's Manic Monday word is 'one'. What better reason to PRIORITISE?

So - on the to do list.

#1 - Prepare for Brownies - due tomorrow. Since the other leader quit tomorrow is my first SOLO promise ceremony. This shouldn't concern me, but as the parents are there and it's something the girls have worked towards for a term I want to make it memorable for them. ALSO I am REALLY frightened of speaking in front of grown ups. I don't know why. If I have a gig in which I must do presentation I have to really psyche myself up for it. It scares me.

#2 - TAX RETURN - this one is due 31 Jan.

#3 - Tidy my bedroom - it's a sh:t heap.

#4 - Sort out website for trumpet group.

That'll do for now - keep it an achievable list.

Don't worry too much about the promise ceremony, I always get worked up about them because like you I hate speaking in front of adults, but as long as you get through the basics, it doesn't matter how you do it.

I have two newbies starting this week so no promise ceremonies till next month, I'm thinking as close to Thinking Day as possible.

As bizarre as this might sound, I have a horrible fear of public speaking. I hyperventilate.

I'm not preparing FOR brownies today I am actually preparing brownies. :)

Happy MM!!!

I used to be terrified of speaking in public until someone told me it was just a conversation where you get to speak first. It still took a while to get the hang of it, but it really helped to think of just telling someone what I was thinking rather than "making a speech". Good luck.

Guider - ta. It's forgotten (ok - not FORGOTTEN but put aside.. all planned). Nice to know others worry about it too.

Kyra - that really surprises me actually having just listened to you on the radio!

Mags- am salivating... mmm.

Jamie - that is how the more successful public speaking episodes of mine have gone.. I've chatted more than 'presented'. Still it's nervewracking.

Don't be scared - I'm sure you'll do just fine!

Julie said...

We have a thought here in the States that if you just imagine everyone in their underwear you'll do just fine.

Just don't throw up if your imagination is real good!

Bwahahaha!

TopChamp said...

AK - thanks x

Julie - not so good as a plan, Stan!... they're 8 year old girls. I think imagining them in their underwear might be a LITTLE bit wrong.

I'd say that's more than enough to be going on with.

Happy MM!
