And The Point Is?

Another Tuesday and the penultimate meeting of 2014. Our very own mild-mannered quietly spoken Rowena asked the question that packed more punch than a bus full of boxers: What is the point?

Do we have a purpose? She posed, or are we just here?

It seemed serendipitous that the theme was Carpe Diem and as a meeting we really ran with it. First to seize the day was Laura with a stunning and elegant icebreaker.  We learned her stand out moment was an adventure to the South of France, where she demonstrated her bravery and optimism. Laura rose to the challenge and certainly seized her opportunity to impress.

We learnt through our speeches that the point is to do it, take your opportunities and enjoy the journey.  Whilst we were all busy seizing the day Gary took the master part of table topics master to heart and seized control of the floor, announcing he relished the power. Question answered; mission accomplished, or so we thought. General Evaluator Antonia then asked how often we really did "seize the day", or do we simply tell ourselves we did.

This is Toastmasters, so the point is that collectively we will question and strive for personal development and let’s face it we enjoy it.   It makes us grow, and that feels good, so good we are going to do it all again on the 16th – the question is will you be joining us? You would be very welcome. After all the more perspectives, the more interesting the question.
