Ever want the ground to swallow you up?

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.

  1. It's ok that I'm not perfect because I know the truth that no one on this earth is!
  2. I choose to laugh at myself with others instead of being oversensitive.
  3. 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.
