So my daughter, Emma, is a cheerleader. She has been a cheerleader for years, except for a couple of years that she played volleyball. She cheered when she was just 8 and it was just 2 little girls for my son's little guy football. I remember one time when she was about 10 and they were in a competition with cheer teams from all over the valley....they had the cutest routine, and they just nailed it!! It was a moment I remember with my heart....just a fun thing. And then last week, her cheer team went to Reno and won the state championship. How great is that? When the world gets so scary, and life gets so serious......our cheerleaders won state! It gives us something to smile about, and right now we need something to smile about. Go Bulldogs!!

So what are you waiting to do? You know what I mean, what is the dream you aren't living, the picture you aren't painting, the view you don't see? The play not acted, the book not written? How about the trip you didn't take, the stock you didn't buy and the diet you just couldn't do? What is it about us that lets inertia win? We are intelligent, vital people,we should be in charge of ourselves shouldn't we? I don't really understand why I can't have the things I dream about. Or can I? I am not dreaming about things that don't exist, or things that have never been done. I am talking about regular stuff, why can't I do it? Or can I? What if we all decided to do something we have never done before. We could live that dumb line...."If you want something you have never had, you have to do something you have never done." I guess it isn't so dumb, actually it is the key. So all we have to do is gird up our loins, and grab some courage...pick something.....something you wish you could do that has been outside your grasp, for whatever reason you just can't get there. So lets scratch that itch!!
Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe you can do something amazing? You know the vision of a horse running in the wilds? They are beautiful, but useless, now put a bridle on that same horse and now what do you have? A beautiful horse that can be useful. As we bridle our passions we turn ourselves into people who can reach their potential. Let's do something amazing...we can do this!
I will get back to you Friday...
