Someone To Cheer You On

Who’s a cheerleader for you in your life? Who is that someone who is always supporting you, giving you encouragement and rooting you on? No matter how crazy your idea or what you’ve done to mess up – they believe in you and are endlessly boosting your morale?
Everyone needs someone like that in his or her lives. A few or more would be even better – but a lot of people dream of even having just one person who is their fan club and in their corner.

If you don’t feel like you have someone cheering you on or offering encouragement – why not? Is there something you could look at in your life that might be hindering someone else from taking that spot for you?

Do you withdraw a lot or keep to yourself? Do you have this “thing” about letting others into your personal life so you don’t confide often in them? Do you tend to maybe jeopardize yourself? Some people have cheerleaders but then they go out and sabotage their own life. It can get to be very draining trying to cheer someone on again and again when they only shoot themselves in their own foot!

How about you? Do you cheer anyone else on in life? Are you there for someone? Do you encourage and root someone (or many someone’s) on in life? If not – why not? Do you realize that other people need you just as much as you need other people?

We will always find a crowd ready and willing to boo us. There will always be those who want to get up and walk out on our “game” of life. But those special someone’s who stay and continue to cheer us on and encourage us to get back out there – those are the people we need. Those are the ones who give us the motivation, stamina, and endurance that we need to find on those days when we feel like we can’t find it on our own.

Everyone needs someone. Look for them and appreciate them.
Be them.

I try to be an encourager to others. But I have to say that I'm very fortunate to have good friends in real life and blogging friends who have been right there with me through thick and thin. Those storms get a bit scary at times. Most of all, I'm so thankful to the Lord. As I keep my eyes on Jesus in the midst of the storms, I know I am loved and He will always be with me.

What a beautiful post!

Blessings and love,
