I’ve been nervous about this conference since February and now it’s over! :-)
Imagine the anticipation and the feelings dealing with the challenge of doing a 90 minute lecture in ENGLISH! In one moment, I was absolutely sure that it wasn’t possible, “I can’t do it!” Then in the next moment, I’m thinking, “Get a grip on yourself! This is exactly what you expect of others – to go outside their comfort zone and do something new and really challenging. Put yourself in the situation yourself and practice what you preach, Arja! :-)
Now it’s over and I'm sooo happy and proud of myself. I did it! It exceeded all my expectations! This opportunity to develop really took me to the next level – having the courage to stand up and hold a lecture in English, for such a large audience. I’ll never forget the magical feeling when I stood there, totally calm, and all the words were there. I can only say that this was the feeling of joy and happiness!
Have a nice and sunny Sunday!
Ps. Berlin is a wonderful city and I love to visit again!
