I was thinking about one of my new sewing projects which required me to actually approach a business owner to ask if she would stock my wine bags, it occurred to me today that I was able to approach her without having a panic attack.  I was still overly nervous but not panicky like I often get when I am required to go promote myself in a way I am unaccustomed.    I love being social, but sometimes my nerves get the better of me. So Yay for me.   This is one step closer to having a more assertive life.
