We ALL need to believe!! We need to believe in ourselves and in others to attain our goals now and in the future!
Well, Cleveland fans we now can really say we believed and it happened!!!
I was thinking how all of this relates to A Place 2B ME. Hmmm...first, I think we all need a place to be "ME". We need to find out who we are......and also work on who we are. This is especially important for those who have been told throughout their lives who they are or what they should be. They too want to find their place 2B "ME". When we then know who "the ME is" it seems to be much easier to figure who "WE" are and how it can all fit together.
I was thinking back to when I was in high school, and playing the trombone in the high school band. That participation was so helpful for me.....to find 'ME". I was able to try hard, excel at times, be recognized for my accomplishments, stand out as an individual but.....also be a part of a group and know what my role was. If I tried to stand out at the wrong time....only thinking about my personal needs, the group would not work as a whole but falter and not be what the director had intended it to be. When the expectations were clear, whether by myself or within the group we all could feel good for what we had accomplished. Now look at the CAVS.....they had to know that they individually were exceptional but together they have brought the championship to the city of CLEVELAND.
So....what about how this relates to A Place 2B ME?? What my hopes and dreams are is that folks can find themselves through exploring many different strategies, supports, following a new path, stretching themselves in their abilities to find the "ME" that is in all of us, and just feel good about themselves!! To be recognized and accepted for the "ME"that you are. But......find even more, that you are more than that and can be part of a group, an endeavor of your choosing and have a greater outlook for your future.
Trust in your abilities even when there is doubt. Stay calm and focused, remember the path that was established. Be in the moment, and savor that feeling when you have accomplished even the smallest feat! That can be the beginning of greatness for anyone. Whether it is a small accomplishment or on a larger scale like the CAVS, you/we can all feel proud of success.
Doesn't that sound exciting and invigorating?? It does for me! I hoping it does for you too!!
So....stay focused.....stay calm......use the tools that you have been given and let's enjoy the experiences ahead. Lily (my dog) says don't worry we got this.....life is GOOD!
