Toastmaster Topics: Finding The One

'Conversation Hearts' photo (c) 2009, Flare - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/2.0/Michelle is Toastmaster today and her topic of choice is “Finding the One.” In her own words:

This week covers many extremes, from Mardi Gras to Ash Wednesday, which is then followed by the most romantic day of the year. I considered all this and decided on “Finding the One” for our theme. I look forward to hearing your interpretation of this sentiment.

Given her observation of the week, I wonder what you think of when you hear that our theme is “Finding the One.”

For me, I immediately think of how this topic relates to Valentine’s Day. A lot of people are looking to find THE ONE. Maybe they’re looking for spouses or life partners or just for a Valentine.

But this week does also begin Lent. For weeks, I’ve struggled to figure out how to best observe Lent. Maybe like me, you’re looking to find THE ONE Lenten Discipline you’ll focus on this year.

Today is also Girl Scout Cookie delivery today. In fact, unfortunately this means I have to miss today’s Toastmasters Meeting (It’s okay–it means you can go sit in my empty seat). There are a lot of people waiting for that ONE favorite kind of Girl Scout cookie.

Whatever ONE you’re looking for, I do hope you find it!

(Toastmasters meets each Wednesday at noon at the Henderson County Public Library in the Multi-Purpose room. Visitors are always welcome!)
