Surround yourself with those that lift you higher
Who are your people?
Do you look up to them?
Do they make you feel good?
Do they make you want to be the best version of yourself?
Do they raise you up?
Does their brightness light you up?
A year ago, this weekend, I unexpectedly lost my mom. Her death was a complete shock. As I head into a weekend that will forever be marred with tragedy and sadness and memories of one of the most difficult time of my life, I will endeavour to be that person to all those around me. I will share my light and warmth and kindness and love with all my staff, my athletes, my cheer families and strangers because mindset is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Positivity is a choice.
We all have hard things.
We all have tragedy.
We all may be fighting a battle that others don’t know about.
But we all have control over our own emotions. We all have control of the conversations we have with others. We all have the choice to choose the lens through which we view the world. We can either play the victim card and whoa is me, or we can take control and CHOOSE to have perspective and look outside ourselves and focus on the impact and difference we can have on others.
I am so very grateful to have amazing friends, staff, athletes and cheer families who shine their bright lights on those around them, including me.
To all of you, I thank you💕💋
