It’s time to get in the game! Go. Go. Go.
In case you didn’t know, I’m not a sports girl. Never have been – never will be! I remember being so defiant in school in PE class. I didn’t want to play, you couldn’t make me play, and I didn’t play. It was my choice.
I was always the last one chose to be on the team. I still have flash backs to this day! Not really! Actually it makes me laugh. I mean seriously with my attitude, who would have wanted me on their team?
I chose not to participate. I chose to sit on the bench pouting. I chose to not be a part.
I see this old attitude I use to have presented in daily life.
People long to be a part of something, but they’re stuck on the bench.
Are you longing to be a part of something?
Do you yearn for community and connection?
Are you fearful of being the last one chosen?
Are you sitting on the bench?
Today is the day to join in!
Others can’t make you want to participate. They can, however, help you get started and show you the way. Some will even cheer you on, but first you have to . . . get off the bench!
Get in the game.
Side note: This mom has been singing the song “Get’cha Head in the Game” from High School Musical while writing this post. Crazy – seriously somebody help me!
