Whew, this year flew by. It was a busy one.
In Spring of 2010, I was busy getting my first book, “Sunny and her Cochlear Implants” ready for print. Finally, after much back and forth between the publisher, illustrator and I, the book finally went to print and was released in June 2010.
Meanwhile, I was busy showing and riding Chance throughout the spring. We finished the show year at Region 9 in Forth Worth. Chance and I had our ups and downs. The winning moments were especially priceless and emotional because it goes to show that hard work, perserverance, with persistence doe pay off!!!!!!
As we moved in to fall 2010, I was very busy with Toastmasters. Even competed in the Humorous Speech and Table Topics contest. The highlight was winning in both.
In addition, I took the next step in advancing my professional speaking career by speaking outside of Toastmasters and Hearing loss Association meetings. I spoke for a quite a few organizations and I had a blast doing it. I love speaking as much as I love showing horses. I became a member of the National Speakers Association Pro Track program.
Finally, ended the year by taking Chance to the xmas show in Katy 2010. We had a great show! Even received a first place in a large class with a flawless ride. My trainer Jennifer Goslin told me that was probably the best ride of my life with Chance. To receive that first place ribbon was the “icing on the cake.
I know 2011 will be an even better year!!!
