Cheerleader to Player

Football season has started and I am looking forward to my team giving me some pretty good games. After all, the Pats have won the Super Bowl 6 times!! Of course this is not about football, but it is definitely kind of sports related, in a broad sense.

All our lives, we have been cheerleaders. We have been there for our children, our husbands, our friends, our siblings. We have been busy keeping everything together. We have been working, raising children, caring for our parents. That was important and made us happy. It seems the right thing to do and we did it.

Yes, we have been the cheerleaders, on the side of the field looking in. Always watching, but not playing, present but not participating, not that we have been idle, but we were hardly the ones on the field. It was our choice in most cases.

Things have changed. We are now in position leave the sidelines and join the game. The years ahead are ours to live as we please. Go forth and become a player….you’ll be great at it!!!
