Before I have to do anything I don’t want to do, I try to imagine how it will feel when it’s over. I was really dreading giving that speech yesterday so I kept imagining Monday morning and what it would be like for the speech to be in the past. Well, it’s Monday morning and it feels great. And now I can finally share which Speech Style I decided to go with.
And the Speech Outfit Winner is…
My outfit wasn’t terribly important in the scheme of things but I wanted to feel and look a certain way. Confident, comfortable, appropriate, grown up– I had a lot of criteria. I hit a lot of my Confident Favorites like black and white together, riding boots, and a statement necklace (I changed the necklace I had originally planned with this outfit because the eagle was a little too “Prince of Egypt” for me).
Overall, this was a really good experience and I’m glad that the speech and the outfit worked out.
