Psyched to have a day off today. My hips are pretty sore from the past few days. Kind of a strange feeling, not muscular, but doesn’t feel like joint either. I’ll see how it is tomorrow. Nothing to worry about I’m sure.
I gave a speech at Boston College this evening to a group of senior nursing students on making positive life choices. One of my members is a professor and thought that sharing my background would be good for the group.
I talked to them about how looking after their own personal health should be their top priority. I shared some personal stories about self neglect and overcoming struggles etc.
Public speaking is something that I try to avoid at all costs and when I was first asked to give this talk a few months back I reluctantly agreed. I didn’t want to do it but knew that I would feel good about it afterwards. Standing up in front of thirty twenty year olds is pretty nerve wrecking. I’m used to giving announcements and explaining workouts to large groups at the gym but it’s an entirely different thing to actually walk into a totally different environment and give a speech to people you don’t know.
Just another one of things that made me nervous but I overcame it an as always I’m glad I did.
