Thank goodness I was not disturbed last night by the two dogs I have been watching! I was worried because I needed my sleep as today is an important day; it's a presentation day.
Days like today are the best days of the year. Today I will be driving to Kirksville, Missouri to give my presentation and I've never been there before which is a plus (I love seeing places I've never been).
Days like today make everything worth it. If my story and concepts makes just one person understand the spectrum even a fraction of a bit then it is worth it.
I know I've said it many times, but understanding is the foundation of hope. To know that in just a few minutes I will be on the open road headed to a presentation has me smiling (I don't smile without a big reason to smile).
Today will be a long day. I drive up, give my presentation, and drive back, Mapquest says it is 210 miles each way, and typically, after a presentation, I am extremely tired after a presentation.
Presentations make me tired, but to give the presentation in the style that I do I must put so much thought into not thinking. Once I start talking I talk at a fast pace to not allow myself to critique my words. If I can figure it out I will post a video on here next week giving you a small example of a segment of my presentation (several people have requested a video blog so who am I to deny the will of the masses?)
Today will be a good day. Long, but good.
