Regardless, you keep building until you get it perfect.
I went to a presentation for work. Mind you, it was an incredible presentation, the speaker was knowledgeable, and didn’t have to read from the powerpoint. Yahoo! Unfortunately, my mind got boggled down during the heart of the presentation content.
We learned about dealing with behaviors today and the speaker kept imitating and referring to behaviors of those with Down Syndrome. Yes my eyes teared and I prayed that the tears wouldn’t roll down my cheeks. And if they did would I have to leave the room. If I left the room would everyone know why? I started to panic.
I did what I always do in situations and moments where I absolutely need to hold it together. I started belting out (in my head) the lyrics to YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE. I sang it over and over and over until my mind was at ease and I could pay attention again.
Some day I will look back on this and smile.
