When I was growing up, I had some serious self esteem issues, like most teenage girls. When I met Jes, I seemed to just mature and grow into a confident person who I never thought I would become. As an example of this, when I was younger, just the thought of having to speak in front of a group of more than 2 people who I knew or didn't know made me break out into a cold sweat and become a stammering idiot. And what do I do now? See what I mean.
The only hold over from the old Shannon is over analyzing what I have said or worrying about an mistakes I made. (Am I the only one who does this?) Tonight, I spoke at a cancer support group on exercise and had a great time and the talk went really well. It was such a great experience being around all the survivors, fighters, and caregivers tonight that I will go back later on this year and do another talk on physiology.
I am making a decision now to not find something to worry about.
