The whole session was an inspiring and delightful experience, starting with the pre-session, when we could wait the meeting to start while we were enjoying a private concert with our fellow toastmasters Juan Carlos and Alba Lucia.
Then the session spun around the art of being grateful. Our amazing TMOD Amy inspired us explaining the meaning of the word. On one hand “the quality of being thankful”, but also “the readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”
We were also amaze with the speeches delivered by a guest speaker for another Toastmasters club about the new educational program, and the one delivered by Victor piqué called “Happy and grateful”.
And to briefly remind the tips provided by Amy about the attitude of gratitude:
1. Look for the positive thing when facing difficult situations.
2. Be grateful for what you have.
3. Train your brain by having a gratitude journal.
4. Daily tell someone how much you appreciate him or her.
5. Prepare and eat your meals with gratitude.
There is no doubt that those are powerful and useful pieces of advices.
