Letters to Myself 5

Letters to Myself 5 is an exercise in forcing myself to step back and look at Vaibhav Gupta. I use it to track what I’ve done while learning to love myself.

Dear Vaibhav,

Hope you’re doing well. This has been a not-so-bad week, kind of a mixed bag. There have been some great highs and some cringy lows.

First of all, congratulations on joining Toastmasters and winning your first ribbon for Best Table Topic speaker. I wish you continued success, and look forward to you becoming a better speaker as you go through your Competent Communicator track. Let’s aim to finish that track by the end of the year – 10 speeches in 9 months (starting April), is hard, but doable. Let’s keep the fallback milestone at CC7, so 7 speeches is fine if we can’t do 10.

Secondly, you hosted your sister while she was here for a college event, and it’s been fine. Some fun times, some fighting, blah. Glad to know you’re taking her to Deadpool today.

Next Saturday is the dance performance. And then the following week is RecipeLab week. Prep yourself – the coming two weeks are going to be tough.

The main low this week has been the difficulty you had in getting blog posts up and going. In a way, it’s good because you’ve been busy with the above activities, so you’re living an active, full life. But we made a commitment to this, and this is our primary interest. Try to get this together – Recipe Lab is coming up and I don’t want a repeat performance of January with cooking every day at 2 AM.

All in all, it’s been good. I’m proud of you for making progress, and as we continue this journey with all these exercises that we do, I hope to see you become better and better.

Love,
Vaibhav.
