Good morning Mintdom!
Yesterday was an Ok day as far as steps go, although, I have almost achieved 4,000 steps already this morning. It is good to be back to walking after a two day break. I do not love getting up, but I DO love how it makes me feel when I do. I even slept in this morning until 6:00 am – Yahoo!
Yesterday was a GREAT day for stepping out of my ‘mint’ zone*. It was a GREAT day for building my confidence. It was a GREAT day for learning and stretching. Yesterday I gave my Icebreaker speech for my Toastmasters group. It was five minutes and 20 seconds of terror – LOL! Giving a speech is difficult even to a small group of people that are doing the same thing and are supportive and encouraging. I think the most difficult part of it was to try to get everything I wanted to say, when there is a timer going.
“Every great achievement is a victory of a flaming heart.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every great achievement is a victory of an awesome support group too and I want to thank all of you that listened to my rehearsals and/or gave me so many encouragements that enabled me to get my first speech under my belt. In addition, I want to thank my evaluator and members of my group for the comments I received, and for being so thoughtful and generous.
What accomplishment would you most like to celebrate by the end of the day? I know that all of Mintdom would love to give you encouragement if you would like to share your goals for the day here.
AffirMINTion: I accomplish the goals that I set.
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!
