Today I was in a pretty foul mood as I prepared to head out to a meeting at Health Education England to pitch an idea for a foundation degree for training health care assistants to a standardised competency level to work in offender care services. 

I realise now that the foul mood was anxiety related. I felt ill prepared & out of my comfort zone, talking myself out being interested in the result of the meeting – of course, if something is worth doing and involves some personal risk then of course it’s scary.

The meeting went well, still some way to go, but exciting and moving forward!
