Just a short bit of rambling today as I’m about to watch 9 (free Netflix for a month – watch all the movies!). My Disjointed Rhymings business cards arrived on Friday which was quite exciting. Even more exciting was getting back in touch with an old school friend after seven years (which may not seem all that long, but is almost a third of my life…which I only just worked out and is a rather scary thought).
Today’s poem seems to be particularly effective with 100% of those* who had read it before posting finding that it helped them with their confidence when faced with having to speak in public. Enjoy!
ConfidenceConfidence is an illusion,
Drawn about like a cloak.
In its enveloping smoke. When anxieties threaten,
Pull yourself up tall.
So no one can see,
Your nervousness at all. Even those brave souls,
Who seem to need no disguise.
May still be fooling,
The outsiders’ eyes.
