Toastmasters

In May 2014, I decided to join a Toastmasters club that meet once a week, at lunch where I work. It’s been the best decision I’ve made since I said “I do”.  Not that wonderful, exciting things haven’t happened to me since I said “I do”, but they’ve typically just done that… “happened to me”.  I didn’t necessarily make long, drawn-out decisions about them- like having both of my kids, for example. But’s that a story for another day.

Anyhow, since I joined this club I’ve delivered  six speeches and won one speech contest. I can’t believe it, but I’m actually beginning to love public speaking,  rather than being terrified of it.  It hit  me today that I can keep this blog alive by posting my Toastmaster speeches. You know the typical “Pele-ish” way of killing two ( or three) birds with one stone…he he he!

So, this is a come-back post to let you all that know this blog will be coming alive again, thanks to my new-found love of writing and delivering speeches.   If you didn’t know already, Toastmasters is the best kept secret for the improving your communication and leadership (yes, leadership!) skills and having fun while at it. Stay tuned…

Happy Friday…make it a good one!

Cheers,

Pele
