Life cheer leaders or life champions are always ready to celebrate, share your victory, be a listening ear when life dumps on you, and ready to say :"ok. That's enough crying. It's time to stand up and make this happen".
Life is hard. Nobody said it was easy. A life champion is always positive, encouraging and ready to cheer you on. At the same time, a sympathetic ear goes a long way to help your grieve, heal and then get back on your feet. We do not all need a psychologist, nor is one right for every occasion. A life champion is not a professional mental health worker. They do not keep de tailed medical records, nor do they do medical billing. What they do is more in line with a cheer leader. They cheer you up, encourage you to dream again, cry with you for a season, and then tell you it's time. Stand up and make this happen. Life champions come in all shapes and sizes, big and tall, male and female, of all races and languages. You probably already have one or two in your life right now. We all do. They are informal great aunts, uncles, family friends, pastors, rabbis or spiritual leaders. Life champions are wonderful pillars in your life. You need at least one. We all do.
Life champions should be trained, certified, and licensed professionals. They serve a wonderful role in our lives. Do you have a cheer leader?
