Dreams are great.  They are fluffy clouds of wonderful that pump us full of endorphins.  They are worth living for.  And dreams only come true when you do the hard work.  I am ready to bring it.

It is imperative that I keep to my schedule of 11:30 bedtime, 15 minutes of prayer in the morning and getting off the profanity trail.

Profanity Trail




I also need to work more exercise in there.  How’s about I dance with my daughter for 15 minutes at lunch every day?  Gotta start somewhere.

I pledge to spend a minimum of an hour a night on my speech and have it written by Feb. 27.  Then I will send it to World Champions Edge to have it critiqued and sent back in time to make changes and still have 7 days to practice it.

I also like fellow Toastmaster Vivien Ip’s idea of having the speech evaluated BEFORE the contest and making changes.  I pledge to do that also.  I am lucky enough to be only 2 hours away from a club in another area so I will go to them as I have for the past year and a half now.  They have been very very good to and for me.

I also pledge to check Facebook only twice a day.  Once in the morning and once at night for no more than 10 minutes each.  Geez, what’ll be left over for Lent?

I enjoyed working on my speech tonight.  I have a vision for it although the 2nd half is very fuzzy right now.  Real work and real time will help.  So will prayer and humility.  And remembering what the POINT is.

And I have to tell you- I can’t freakin’ WAIT to start Avery Drilling again.
