I love being a cheerleader.
And, I never tapped into how rewarding this supportive role is until this year.
Growing up, I was not an actual cheerleader. I never had any desire to be a cheerleader. I was a band nerd. I chose marching around a football field every year playing the Fight Song on my clarinet over shaking an actual pom-pom and shouting “We’ve got spirit, yes we do. We’ve got spirit, how ’bout you?!”
In hindsight, I was a cheerleader back then…but I was doing it through the sounds of an instrument instead of shaking my groove thing. 🙂
Over the past year, I have “officially” been on six or seven book launch teams. (Unofficially, I’ve been on more.)This is where a group of people come together and help “launch” a book coming out soon. Now, I don’t help promote just any book. I need to believe in both the message and the messenger. If I do, I pick up my pom-poms and start spreading the love!
One reason I love promoting the work of others is because it takes the focus off of me and places it on something bigger. I LOVE THAT!
I guess this post is a reminder to me and to you that true joy is found in serving others.
How can you serve and support somebody else today?
Pick up your pom-poms and get busy!
