Me & My Muse – Day 332: Toastmasters – Week 6

As of tonight, I will be ending my sixth week in a row of attending Toastmasters meetings.

Why six in a row?  I would attribute this to the misaligned dates in May, and the fact that I was in three different clubs.  With one of these clubs now closed, having six weeks of Toastmasters meetings will certainly not happen again.

On a related note, you probably want to know how the election turned out.  As much as I would’ve wanted to win, I didn’t.  But I learned something at the District Conference.  And from what I learned there, I was unphased when I heard the results.

Despite not winning, I have taken on a different strategy.  I will assist the Club President in all of her duties.  I will be gathering details and information for her to ensure that her term is a success.  While we all know how to win, we must also learn how to lose.  We can win like winners, but we must also know how to lose like winners.

How do I do this?  I simply see it like this:  If you win, you win.  If you lose, you win.  In your mind, you must have the mentality of winning regardless of what the outcome is.  There is another path that I am supposed to take, and I will follow that path forward.  When one door closes, another opens, and I will search around for that door that is open.

What is on the agenda for today?  I will be having a three-hour shaker shift at the pizza pit.  After that, I will have three hours to relax at home.  I will then be heading off to Saginaw for my last Toastmasters meeting for the week. This would wrap up week six of my Toastmasters marathon of meetings.


Ghost Muse:  Six weeks?  That’s pretty busy.

I know.  Looking at the calendar, I knew that this would be grueling.

Ghost Muse:  Well, you have an hour left, so I’ll leave you to your duties.


Thank you.  So that’s today in a nutshell.  Shake my sign for three hours (granted that I’m not asked to help inside), rest for three hours and attend another Toastmasters meeting.  And up ahead?  I will be working 13 hours this weekend.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Sunday…

Today’s high is going to be 76 degrees and the silver lining is being done with the six consecutive weeks of Toastmasters meetings.

To those of you who feel like they have been doing something nonstop, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  If I can’t talk to Kyle in person, I know what I’ll do.  I’ll send him a note.  Maybe he’ll talk to me then.  What should I write?
