GoodDay Sacramento

It's a good day for a GOODday!

Party Fun with Julissa Ortiz of GoodDay Sacramento

I was so excited when Julissa asked me to throw out a few party ideas for her morning segment. I was also terrified. First, ummmm, live T.V.! Gulp. What if I stumble on my words? Or worse yet, physically stumble (highly likely, I'm super clumsy)? What if it's not good enough? What if I embarrass myself? What if it's awkward?

Second, I needed to be ready in 1 week. A week? They say life can change in an instant, ok, cool, this is spare time in comparison, I've got 7 days, it's fine. Better figure out what I'm going to do. What displays would I create? How would I get everything in time? Is this even possible? It's winter heading into spring and I am not prepared for this. How? How will I pull this off? I don't even know what I'm doing. And, like everything else in life, you just do it.

What if it's not good enough? What if I embarrass myself? What if it's awkward? Is this even possible?

A call to my sister (to share excitement and then freak out) and frantic chat with my husband later, I went into work mode. I decided to put together a few different areas including a St.Patrick's Day setup, an Easter table, and a Spring Break "Staycation".

The day approached and my heart was pounding out of my chest. I was so incredibly nervous and I'm sure Julissa and her cameraman thought I was absolutely crazy. People do this everyday and other vendors seemed to get through segments with absolute ease. I could barely put a sentence together and we were not even "live" yet. Thank goodness they were such kind professionals and helped guide me through.

In looking back, I'm so grateful that I had this experience. I wanted so badly to say "no", but there is no growth without discomfort, so here I am just a little bit wiser. It probably doesn't seem like much to most, but I felt so accomplished in just putting myself out there. Onward and upward I go.
