I am just a week away from attending my second conference ever. I am excited, anxious, and yes, even nervous! I don’t come across the nervous type, I am a very bold, stick out, you won’t miss me in a room kind of gal, but I have to admit, I can
be pretty insecure about myself at times. I think as adults, we sometimes forget that we too can be shy and insecure.

I am making a promise to myself to try to not be afraid to jump into the conversation. Introduce myself to as many people as I can. Most importantly, I am going to make sure that I make every other woman I come in contact with feel like she too is awesome. (Yes, I LOVE the word awesome!)you have never met before, itcan swing you right back into those high school days when you were afraid about fitting in. I know that when I get into big social settings I tend to find myself worrying that I am being judged. I am plus size, I am covered in tattoos, and have green hair. I get worried that people see me, and think ‘who does she think she is, and what is she doing here’. I know in most cases, this is just my insecurity speaking, and not at all true. I just need to remind myself that I am awesome. And to present my real self, I need to remember that.
Can’t wait to meet everyone next week, and please, if you are going, come say hi!
