SWING FOR THE FENCES
I’m sure you’ve heard it many times before and I know I’ve said it - YOU are enough, YOU have the best answers for your life, YOU create your reality. While I firmly believe that to be true, I also believe a magical life occurs easier through team effort when all involved believe and support the vision. I am a huge baseball fan, well, I’m a huge St. Louis Cardinal baseball fan. I’ve always admired the team effort that goes on to achieve great success and winning the ultimate goal – the World Series. Yes, there are often stars, yet there are also the bench guys who come in during pivotal points in the game and get the crucial hit or make a big play in the field. There is the front office and management that builds a cohesive team. There is the pitcher/catcher relationship that when done well is on a wave length unbeatable as each knows what the other is thinking allowing the other to react accordingly. The best of the best pitchers need to have a catcher that they fully believe in and trust to have ultimate success. Then they need to rely on the defensive and offensive players to support that overall vision of winning. And add to the scope is the man in the stands who holds that vision for the team cheering loudly in support of a win and yelling just as strongly cheering for a comeback when needed. So yes, YOU are enough, YOU are deserving of a magical life, YOU have all that is required in yourself, and having the right team support around you allows that to take place with more love, laughter, and happiness than you’ve ever known. Whether your catcher is your lover or best friend having that person who ‘has your back’ always in all situations allows you to stand taller in your truth. Having family and friends around you to play key roles in your dreams allows the journey to be more fun. And for good measure include people in your life who will be your cheerleaders seeing your ultimate happiness even when you are too weary to see it for yourself. Moving forward, I invite you to choose your team by choosing: A catcher: This person sees the best in you as well as wants the best for you. This connection has an intense trust in each other that even during the challenges, your dual mutual focus will heighten celebrations and lessen the impact of challenges. Team players: These people are another level of support as they see your dreams from another angle and can help keep you on track. Cheerleaders: Having those high fives and job well done after a long day is a great pick me up and reminder that you are on the right track to living your best life. There will always be hecklers in your life and the less attention and time you give them the better while sending love rather than returning heckling. Mostly, I want you to see your personal power of living a life filled with deeper love, laughter, and happiness than you have ever known while being part of a team supporting your vision as you support theirs. Until next time, Swing for the fences and I will see you in the World Series of YOUR life.
