The past three or four nights have been sleepless for me, filled with extensive tossing and turning. Yesterday, despite how I was feeling I attended a fabulous monthly luncheon sponsored by the Peoria Chamber. On the drive over, I realized that because of my fatigue I forgot to wear any makeup. This was an especially uncomfortable observation, because I was about to announce the new classes I am teaching in front of the whole assembled group.
Even though I felt less confident than usual, I went on anyway and announced my class in spite of the big black circles under my eyes. And, guess what? The response was so strong that the class is almost filled up. So I was reminded that most people look past little distractions and see the big picture. Also, life can be great even with little sleep.
