I got a tweet from Lauren Ferrara telling me she wanted me to speak about mindful parenting on the local evening news. A spot on the news is something I’ve been visualizing, even going so far as to start a media 1-pager I’d never found the time to pitch. Here was the opportunity I’d been hoping for, landing right in my lap!
You may be wondering, “So where’s the terrible, awful part?” As those of you who know me personally or have been following my blog for a while already know, I struggle with a fear of public speaking. I’ve been tackling this fear for almost a year now and still my initial reaction was that perhaps I should ignore her because I was afraid.
