Life happens even when we have everything planned and prepared. Last month I was excited to speak at a speaker showcase. Of course it happened to be on the snowiest night of the year.
I wanted to be well prepared, so I went the day before and stayed over night. I woke up in the dark, took a deep breathe, said a prayer, and thought “practice what you preach…here goes”. I went down four flights of stairs, no make-up, no hair style, and thought “here goes nothing”.
It was interesting to watch a number of committed speakers arrive, some calm and some a bit more excited (especially when they had to drive in the snow) only to find out there was no power in the building and the whole event would end up being cancelled. Life happens no matter how planned & prepared we are!
