I was asked to appear on TV & paint. The idea of live painting a piece in 2 hours on TV made me quite nervous. As we were preparing the set to go live, my easel literally fell apart in pieces & crashed to the floor 2 minutes before air time! Immediately I was swarmed by producers & cameramen helping me try & figure out how to put my easel back together before my segment started. I was shaking, dripping sweat, swearing & laughing all at the same time. My easel had never just fallen apart! Why NOW minutes before going on live TV?? After it was all over we all laughed about it & had a great time. This was a good lesson for me to be light hearted even in times of stress! When we are light hearted, we are less stressed, happier, more fulfilled, nicer to people, & can go with the flow.
