Grammarian

You know those days when you are so busy you don’t know what to do next? And then all the days when you think you’ll never catch up? Well, I’m just managing a bit of my “catch-up” and posting videos and blog posts about some Toastmasters activities. Here’s a link to the continuation of the previous entry. I volunteered to be the grammarian for the meeting at the VIC on Tuesday. Then I was also awarded the best table topic ribbon award for the day. Next weekend we will do another COT Club Officer Training, this time via Zoom. I really enjoy the collaborating and networking opportunities. We make them and take them.
Weird how I am also going through all sorts of ups and downs knowing that my final contract at the Agency will be concluding soon, together with my term as Area Director of F2.
Don’t you sometimes wish for a little more balance in your life? But then when you realize you can be grateful for all you have and in retrospect, it was all just as it was meant to be?
I’m bathing in the mindful gratitude of what I have now and appreciate it while I am still in the midst of it!
