I can not remember the specific title of the speech but it centered around how I had lost my sense of humor due to my divorce.
OK, maybe in my mind I thought I was the funny one among my peers.
My friend Ken would shout out “total silence” when something I thought was funny turend out not to be funny. Ken would also say that I was a walking party. My belief of what he meant was that I liked, no scratch that I LOVED to have fun.
The month of September is “Suicide Prevention Month” and there is nothing funny at all about the subject of Suicide.
What is wrong with me? I have won speaking contest in Toastmasters giving humorist speeches. Do you understand where I am coming from? I have won awards for speaking in humorist speaking contest. Nonetheless I have lost my humor, once again. Gone, caput, done, no more.
For the record I love doing the podcast, speaking and writing but these three platforms do not have my humor woven in them. WHY?? What is wrong with me?
This month personally has been a major struggle because my goal is to share with you my reasons of being in gratitude.
Creating my own stress of trying to be consistent of getting the content to you and simply hoping that I am doing good is again stressing me out and another reason why I am not funny. I want to provide information that you can use. Content that brings value you to you.
When I was working in radio and at a station that was outside of Nashville, one of my bosses told me essentially if there were numbers kept of the midnight shift I would be number one in that time slot. Meaning that at that time my radio SHOW aired from midnight to 6 Am, so I would have been the top DJ during that time period. The reason?? I WAS FUNNY!!
The speech I had first mentioned; not only did I not place for that speech but in my head I was the funny one. However, in the words of my friend Ken “total silence.”
