ME: Hi Sweetheart, you know what I get to do today? I get to speak in front of a lot of people about creativity and I’m nervous.
ME: Yes, I phoned for you to wish me good luck.
GRANDDAUGHTER: I know what to do. When I was going to my very first day at my School of the Arts Elementary School, I was very nervous. So what I did was just say Hi to people. And as I went along my way, I got happier and happier. Soon, I was even able to say more.
ME, with jaw dropped, heart smiling: Honey, that’s beautiful. I will try that. And I will write that down and share it with others to help them, too.
(ps. It worked like a charm)
