That was me during Saturday afternoon's webinar - after I uploaded the wrong clip - the clip that hadn't been completely edited and had me stumbling all over my words and repeating myself over again looking like a completely incompetent fool! You see, I'm trying out these live webinars at the moment, and in order to make sure I cover the critical content and also respect people's time, I am including a little pre-recorded and edited section in the middle - whilst Tom and I stay in the "chat room" (it's called a hybrid webinar!) It has been a very steep learning curve, but so far but none as steep as this weeks!
Ironically, this week's webinar was all about managing stress and worry!
It started as a bit of a worry when Tom, my co-host extraordinaire, let me know he couldn't join me this time and I thought I was going to have to go solo! Thankfully Gareth was able to step in and save the day.
And it was all looking so promising...
... until that was, I pressed play on the pre-loaded, pre-recorded video (it's all very technical!) and then had to sit and helplessly watch the unedited section of film roll out for all to see me making a complete fool of myself!
Bridget Jones eat your heart out!!
Anyway, I am intentionally choosing to take at least 3 things away from the whole experience.
- It's ok that I'm not perfect because I know the truth that no one on this earth is!
- I choose to laugh at myself with others instead of being oversensitive.
- I am going to do webinars again* anyway, even though people might not watch, and it might happen again!
Because that is what living life to the full is all about! Taking a few risks, learning from our mistakes and having fun with friends and family along the way.
I hope you have a day where stumbling over your words makes you appreciate how good life is today too!

(*next webinar is probably going to be on Wednesday week - But I'll let you know in next week's blog post!)
PS - if you really want to see how awful it was, and have nothing better to do, then you can watch a replay here.
You'll want to look out for the bit when I try and explain that there is no universally agreed medical definition of stress... and then try and talk about what I learned in my sports science degree...
Thankfully the rest of the webinar is hopefully quite useful! and if you want to have a go at the Worry time, you can download the worksheet here.
