My TEDx Dream Came True!
I just wanted to share my beautiful experience March 30th 2019.
I was on stage, delivering my talk at TEDx Orillia, and it was one of the most amazing, incredible, exhilarating and terrifying experiences of my entire life.
Going from being absolutely petrified to speak publicly, to writing a book, becoming a speaker and then to me, this was my Olympic.
My dream came true, I delivered a TEDx talk.
I had so many people, family and friends that were there to support me,
the speakers were amazing and these daffodils were my one prop. I even
received this postcard from Patch Adams who I mentioned in my talk as my inspiration in my whole nursing career and he sent me the postcard
congratulating me and telling me to have fun at my TEDx talk.
I could not have done this without the help of so many people. First,
Beth Grixti who said to me “Would you ever consider doing a TED talk?”
And I thought she was joking knowing it was my dream.
She saw the value in my message, she shared it with Rick Talbot,
the organizer who also I cannot thank enough for seeing the value in my
message and feeling like it was an idea worth spreading.
He was the one who invited me to speak.
I also have my dear friend, mentor and coach Joseph Ranseth, who answered
so many of my questions about my TEDx talk and helping me to craft my message.
I want to thank everyone on stage, behind the stage, the speakers,
the volunteers for this incredible experience, it is a dream come true,
and to anyone anywhere, out there that has a dream that thinks maybe
they cannot do it, it cannot come true, even if it takes longer than you thought,
this has been my dream for many years… GO FOR IT!
And you too can be on the TEDx stage, and get the t shirt.
