Just like that...

In January I made the decision that I would not compete in the 2016 International Speech contest.  The decision was based on my recovery from the heart attack.  I was doing quite well on the recovery, but did not have the energy required to pursue a speech contest.  I also knew that I would not go half-assed on the contest - I was either all in or not competing.

For the past 5 months I have fine with that decision.  I didn't miss the contest, the prep, any of it.

I even started asking the question:  Will I ever go back to this?  Did I outgrow the contest?

Late last week, the answer hit me.  I came up with my next speech idea, and I can't wait to compete in 2017. 

Once I found the message I wanted to give - everything fell into place.

2017!  Vancouver or bust!
