Why Magnolia is My Least Favorite Word

How embarrassing!

  • Do not be afraid to stand up for yourself. I should have listened to the man from the audience that approached me after I was out about challenging the pronunciation. Yes, I did not really care at the time. I simply wanted to get out of there. But now I realize that if you don’t stand up for yourself, no one will.
  • Do not be nervous. Easier said than done but I think I was so worried about making a fool of myself that in turn that is exactly what I did.
  • You will live to see another day. It was embarrassing at the time. But now I look back and laugh. Life moves on and learning from mishaps instead of fretting over them is the best option.

And lastly I learned that Magnolia is my least favorite word of all time.
