Me & My Muse – Day 2420: Weekend Obstacle

To enjoy this weekend, only one obstacle stands in the way.  A Toastmasters Area Speech Contest.

After I finish this contest, I will have free reign to enjoy the rest of this Saturday.  So yeah.  Bring it on.  This is part of the Toastmasters burnout that I have been experiencing lately.  More about it in a later entry.  Make no mistake.  Toastmasters is an excellent program.  The problem in my case is what my season in life now looks like compared to when I joined more than 10 years ago.  Let’s just say that I got the full benefit of the program and my over-commitment is starting to make me tired.  Consider that a preview as I will talk about this in another post.

Time to drive to Saginaw and start this contest.  Then enjoy my Saturday.

Today’s high is going to be 42 degrees and the silver lining is being able to enjoy my Saturday after the Toastmasters Area speech contest.

To those of you who have had over-commitment before, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Burn out?  Yeah.  I know.  For me, I can remember starting various clubs and leading the whole Intangible organization since they never heard of Toastmasters before.  And yeah.  I’m starting to feel that burnout too.  Enjoy the sun today!  I made it sunny with you in mind… 🙂
