OK, so my little segment on TV yesterday is over. Hallelujah.
The first time I do anything new I get so stressed out about it. I overthink it. I overblow it's importance in my mind. I have a hard time thinking about anything else as that new thing inches closer on the calendar.
And then when I'm done with that new thing, I replay it in my head about a thousand times, thinking of how I could have done it better. I drive myself crazy!
Anyway, I'm glad that I made it through my first TV appearance yesterday without totally choking on my words and without getting the splotchy neck that I often get when I'm nervous (lovely Eyre trait that many of my siblings and I get to deal with). I tried to cram in too much. I was worried about my hair (I need a haircut so badly!). I couldn't tell if or when they were showing the bullet points and chore chart they said they were going to show on the screen (I did catch a glimpse of a screen that was maybe showing me what the audience was seeing but then I was worried about looking at it for fear I'd lose my train of thought or look like I was looking the wrong direction on camera...).
Sorry. No more excuses. Hopefully the segment offered some people out there some helpful ideas to teach their children values - a subject that is near and dear to my heart.
Here it is. See what you think.
