For those of you who follow my twitter, you would know that I made some comment about “why is performing so nerve wrecking?” It is probably because you feel as though a large number is standing there and judging you!

Here is the article:
Have you considered what kind of image you are presenting to the world? Is it elegant?
A BIG THANK YOU …
Thanks for reading!
Shalom (which in Hebrew means wishing you peace, wholeness, perfect health and well-being),
P.s. I tweet randomly about what’s happening in my life on twitter (which may not be related to elegance) and Facebook. While I’m busy reading, researching, planning and writing pages on elegantwoman.org, I occasionally blog.
