RENEW YOUR PROMISE, REVIVE YOUR SPIRIT!

Change is the only constant. How true these words are! Today we live in a world that is different from the one we grew up in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate that we, as humans need to keep up the pace. We stand poised on the threshold of a new era and the need for adaption is a must. Who had thought that in a span of just a few months our kids would become tech savvy and everything will become online. Businesses are conducted online; you can find your local vendor selling his products online. you even get fresh fruits and vegetables online. Women are attending online classes and enhancing her skills from the comfort of her homes. This is the renewal of self.

I am a dedicated housewife, yet had this little dream to be a confident person. I wished to be able to deliver a speech in front of a huge crowd. Whenever I got the chance to hear a good speaker, the thought crossed my mind; will I ever be able to do the same? And behold; here I am A Toastmaster. All set to fulfill my dreams and to redefine myself. To keep my promise to myself, that one day I will be confident enough to speak out loud, in front of a huge gathering. We should always push our limits, and not be afraid of failure. We should at least try and that will bring out the latent talent in us cause

Only as high as I reach, can I grow

Only as far as I can seek, can I go

Only as deep as I look, can I see

Only as much as I dream, can I be.
