I've been thinking more and more about my speech. I've decided that I'm going to talk about the importance of living a happy life.
Before I went gluten-free, I constantly felt sick and gross. I didn't want to run around or do anything, and I always just felt tired. Once I dropped gluten from my diet, I felt 100000x better than before. I realized that for years I was living in pain all so that I could have flour in the food I ate. I look back now and realize how stupid that was. Why would I want to waste time feeling awful when I could use that time to feel great and go do something?
Change can be hard, and in life, many people resist change just so they don't have to adapt to a new way of life. The fact of the matter though, is that change can be for the better. Without changing what I ate, I would still feel sick and tired to this day.
I learned a lot of things throughout the course of the project. The most important being that our lives are too short to be spent living unhappy and in pain. We must cease the moment and strive for happiness and serenity.
Now that I have my topic, I must mentally prepare myself to present. I hate public speaking. Always have and still do. The nice thing is though, that not having to memorize the speech will keep me from potentially messing up.
The next few weeks will contain lots of practice and hopefully when the time comes it will be easy breezy.
