Life gets in the way....

January 21, 2019

 

 

I never got around to the networking events I wrote about in my last post. Sometimes life gets in the way, and it sure did last week.

 

My 13-year-old dog, Jax crossed the rainbow bridge on Wednesday.  Losing a pet is awful, but having to make the decision to put them to sleep is the worst.  I’ve never had to do that before and I hope to never have to again. I know it was for the best and it relieved him of his pain, but it still broke my heart.  I don’t think I have any tears left to cry for a good year or so! 

 

Life marches forward....and to keep my 2019 goals in tact I’ll be attending a few networking sessions this week. I’m sure I’ll be nervous walking in, and hopefully will walk out thinking how great it was like I usually do. I read an article in Forbes magazine about calming your networking nerves.  Here was the advice they gave:

 

”Practice breathing techniques in advance.  When we’re nervous, we tend to take shallow breaths, which only leads to more anxiety.  Choose small and manageable goals beforehand as well (example:  I must talk to at least 3 new people, and then I can go home).  It’s OK to be a little nervous. It just means you’re excited. Acknowledge your feelings and recognize them as a form of ‘nervous excitement,’ then focus on the people around you.”

 

I’ll be putting these ideas into practice this week!

 

Happy MLK Day, everyone!
