Anyway, I emailed the people who asked me to speak on the panel and told them I didn't think I was the right choice. Then a friend called me and told me why they had chosen me. She began to tell me how people were inspired by a short film I had written and how they appreciated my heart. I was so moved by what she said.

My life hasn't exactly turned out the way I planned. There have been times I've been terribly disappointed. I've had to learn to be flexible and accept that a change in plans does not equal failure. If I had things my way, I probably wouldn't have "planned" to be a mommy yet. But I'm so glad I am (although sometimes I question when they wake me up at night, make a mess of things I just cleaned up and complain about the food I made :)
I ended up talking a lot at the panel. I was surprised how much I did have to offer. And at the end when people were asking questions, I was one of the people they addressed. It felt good to share some of my experiences. Hopefully someone got something useful from what I said. And if not, hope I wasn't boring :) Just glad I did it. Everyone was so nice and I even got a way cool, totally unexpected gift...
