Hello, It’s Me

Hello, It’s me……..

I’ve been scarce on my posting this semester. As most of my readers know, I care for two of my grandchildren five days a week while my son and wife attend University/work.

My head swirls with things I want to talk about but writing with a two year old who talks extremely well for her age and is found under foot more often than not is certainly challenging.

So today, I bring you entertainment. I bring you a song from a talented group singing and performing Adele’s song, Hello.

I will write soon. I’m in Missouri, dreaming of how it use to be………….

Enjoy!

Cheerleader

Definition of cheerleader
noun cheer·lead·er \ˈchir-ˌlē-dər\

: a person who is a member of a group (typically a group of young women) who shout out special songs or chants to encourage the team and entertain the crowd during a game in sports like American football and basketball

: a person who encourages other people to do or support something

On my  page About page I express one of my passions: “I am passionate about the potential I see in others.……. I want to help them get there.  I want to bring hope to others.”

I never was “cheerleader” material.  Too shy, too quiet, too terrified, and no confidence or desire to do things outside the norm for me.  As I matured along life’s path I developed more confidence.  I started doing things that were out of the norm for me.  I took on a “why not” kind of attitude.  What have I got to lose?  Some things were harder than I thought and still cringe at what I went through to achieve something.  But I did come out knowing I could do anything I put my mind to.

I had a few cheerleaders along the way.  Here and there a good friend came alongside to say “You can do it!“.  My husband is my biggest cheerleader and I can think of a few dear friends who have remained faithful to me and my crazy ideas over the years.  I am totally thankful for their encouragement to me.

You see, the thing in my life that I am the most passionate about is also the biggest hindrance to me.  The fear of not achieving what I desire or what I know I can do is always jumping up in my face and thoughts.  That lack of confidence is always rearing it’s ugly head and telling me lies.  The beast will succeed if I let him.  If I give in to the lies he is telling me and start believing them 100% he wins.  It happens to all of us.  The choice lies within us.  Don’t listen.  Don’t give him an ounce of room to dwell there.

I don’t always know how to accomplish my goals or yours.  But I do know that I can see the end result.  I can see my dreams and desires are very real.  I can see the potential in others to accomplish what they desire and what God has made them to be – even if they don’t see it yet.  And I do know that I can be a cheerleader for you and for myself.  You can do it.  I can do it. We just have to at least try…….

Enjoy!
