I had to do a presentation just now for my work- explaining the services, going over interviews etc. etc. I don't do presentations. They make me nervous. While I relaxed quite a bit during the process, I know it could have gone better. Perhaps I should stop being hard on myself; it was my first time, afterall.
I rewarded myself with a giant chocolate chip cookie. It was gobbled down, and soothed me for about 20 seconds. I'm not going to beat myself up about that either. I recognize it for what it is, and I'm going to move on. It was an emotion cookie. I ate my emotions.
