Building confidence: A new toastmaster is born

What an epic meeting yesterday!

First time toastmaster Tony A introduced the theme “Say Yes”, This mindset is helpful for personal growth.  We learnt that after saying yes to an epic cycle ride, one member now feels limitless.  

“She sells seashells by the seashore,
The shells she sells are seashells, I’m sure.
So if she sells seashells on the seashore,
Then I’m sure she sells seashore shells”. Now say it again faster! Tongue twisters are a great way to warm up, thanks Patricia.  

Impromptu speeches are normally reserved for table topics, but yesterday we were treated to a “prepared “impromptu speech from Julie.  Failed early attempts at joke telling caused Julie to believe she didn’t have a funny bone.  But at age 77, she realised that wasn’t true.  Julie often has a blue background on zoom, yesterday’s speech was seasoned with a similar hue.

Yesterday was the final instalment of the Easy speak / Pathways trilogy.  We’ll now see evaluation forms being passed between members, speeches and roles booked in advanced, happy days.

How would you describe yourself as an inanimate object?  If Ellie was a clock, show would harness time travel to be able to undo bad history.
