Speaking Of... Blog by Vivian Cobb
If you're local, maybe you saw that I had the honor of appearing on FOX21News, talking about public speaking, Toastmasters, the new Woodland Park chapter (Toastmasters Above the Clouds), and my upcoming TEDx Manitou Springs event. If you're not local, or you missed it, please take a moment to watch.
I recently had the opportunity to join fellow TEDxManitouSprings speaker for a little chat. WATCH IT HERE!
“I could actually just drift away.”
Recently I sat on "the porch" with Jill Davis on The Storytellers Porch Podcast to share some of my story from last year’s Covid experience.

In May, I was honored to speak to the DFW Chapter of FACES with AT&T. Such an exhilarating experience sharing my story and connecting with so many amazing folks.

Thank you so much for sharing your story of how you found the courage, strength, and perseverance to dream once again through seemingly unsurmountable circumstances.
You remind us that we do not need to stay stuck in situations that are not healthy. Rather, we all have within us the ability to Intentionally don our ruby red slippers in order to walk the path we need to travel to get where we truly want to go.May you have continued success on your journey to happiness Vivian! -Suanne
Vivian, I couldn’t let the day end without telling you how amazing the session was today. Your message is genuine and real. You are using your testimonies as a way to bless and enhance those you encounter. Thank you for being the best part of my day and may you continue to be a refreshing blessing to others! -Kristy

On Friday, June 4, 2021, I appeared in my final live video for the #77DayLiveChallenge on Facebook. Wow...77 DAYS!!! of showing up live. Some days were tough, no doubt, but I showed up for myself and my dream every single day.
When is the last time you showed up for yourself? I encourage you today to find some idea, some challenge, some project that you've been interested in, and show up to practice, play, or learn for the next 30 days.
I had the best time and have learned so much from my journey, and I want that for you, too.
SHOW UP FOR YOU!
While that part of my live challenge/journey has been accomplished, you can watch all those videos on my YouTube channel. I'd love for you to join me there, subscribe, and catch up -- or watch again. I appreciate your support!
“Vivian Cobb’s story of the gifts she received from overcoming Covid left an impression on me. I recently heard another story of someone who had to overcome health challenges, and in their recollection, they felt as if they were being pulled down into darkness, where Vivian felt as if there was ease and light that she had to choose not to walk towards. Thoughts like this leave much room to pause and wonder. Her soft style of communicating was a fantastic kick off towards what ended up being a beautiful memoirs [event].”
