Do it anyway

This short post comes under the heading of “get over yourself. Just do it anyway”. It all started last week at the board meeting. I found out I was going to have to speak in Front of 80-90 people, which managed to turn my voice three octaves higher. Then I find out my mentor Linda would not be there, so I had to speak for her too. I have worried about this all week, what a blood fool I was going to make of myself. Then last night I lose a tooth. Not a back tooth. One right in front. Ye gods. I’ve been more than a little sick to my stomach since. But I decided if God was going to give me this test, then by damn I was going to pass it. So I went to the meeting tonight and spoke in front of a bunch of local artists, talked to many after the fact, and generally had a great time. Thanks for the test, God.
