I usually like to respond to the Daily Prompt ASAP. Got caught up with work today.
Public speaking? Voicing opinions? Facing the crowd? I LOVE IT.
Not being someone who hides behind the veil of modesty just because it’s the norm and looks polite; I am quite a good orator. I have always loved debates, declamations or poetry recitations. Its something I learnt from my father. Yes, he is a brilliant speaker. People love him.
That moment when you know that everyone in the room is listening to what YOU are saying, that gives me an adrenaline rush of the good kind. Right before getting on stage the Stomach Zoo does open up but once I start speaking I feel in my element. Girl Power, hell yeah!
One would think I am the same way while speaking or confronting an emotional and private matter, sadly, it’s the completely opposite. For the life of me, I CANNOT express my emotions vocally. Opinions, facts, statements, presentations, I feel confident about. The complexity and ever-changing nature of my emotions leaves me tongue-tied.
So be it black socks or underwear or maybe even going the full monty, I feel insanely awesome while speaking to a group or publicly.
