I was a cheer sponsor for about ten years of my career, and I’ll be totally honest – I loved it.
Like seriously loved it.
I learned so much in those ten years about, well, everything.
I’ve had the opportunity to watch young girls grow into beautiful, fierce, capable, and courageous young women.
It’s been pretty awesome to watch them “grow up” via Facebook and Instagram, and that’s one of the good things about social media – a topic my girls and I often spoke about. 😆
One thing I always told my girls when they graduated was this: Once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader.
These young ladies may not be under those Texas Friday Night Lights anymore, but they are still in some form and fashion watching and cheering for someone in their life from the sidelines – and so are you.
And hopefully their self.
Y’all, somebody needs you rooting for them. Somebody needs you to cheer for them in their winning seasons and their losing seasons – cause that’s part of life, too. Somebody needs that extra boost, that confidence, that validation.
So as we trek forward into 2020 I challenge you to the following:
▪️make a list of people to encourage
▪️pray for them
▪️send a real card
▪️meet with them face to face
And don’t forget to root for yourself either. She’s pretty awesome. 💛
