In less than 24 hours since I launched this crazy mojo-seeking campaign, I have FOUR coaches, EIGHT teammates, EIGHT cheerleaders, and TWO fans. Wow. Wow. Wow. Not sure what I expected, but not this!
No one officially signed up to be a “Booster” but… if you sent me a word of encouragement without noting your level of involvement, I made you a Booster. This just means you support Team QueenPrincess but don’t necessarily assume additional responsibility for future posting. So, no pressure. I hope it’s okay that I just assumed I could make you a booster. I wanted to acknowledge your awesomeness!
If anyone feels like they’ve been placed on Team QueenPrincess in error, please let me know and I’ll get your name taken off the list. I will continue adding to the list (which is right there in the blog sidebar on the right of the screen…see it?) through the next 24 days, as more people jump on board.
I have just posted a shot of encouragement on each of my teammates’ walls. The deal with teammates is that they share with me (usually privately but some have decided to share publicly) one of their own personal goals over the next 24 days. They engage in the happy practices with me and post about it and my job, as their teammate, is to coach them and send some Mojo back their way. Each message I sent out to my teammates, I need to send right back to myself. Human beings are funny that way. We depend on each other to remind us of all the most fundamental truths. We matter. We do the best we can. We can be what we want to be. We won’t feel this way forever. We only have this moment. Already this project is reassuring me of these fundamentals, by giving me the chance to reassure others.
My first day of happy practices went very well. The only thing I missed was meditation. Meditation is a big one. I’m lazy about taking time for it. Ha! I even lead one of my classes through some meditation today but didn’t take the time to do my own. And, of course, meditation is probably the one happy practice I need to cultivate the most. Like exercise, I feel the effects of meditation almost immediately. I’m calmer. Definitely more present. And we all need to be more present. So, tomorrow the meditation comes FIRST.
For now, a decent night of sleep needs to be had (fell asleep, as usual, with my Luberry, and woke back up to take care of Team QueenPrincess stuff! – and that’s okay because this stuff is feeding my soul big time right now!). I will check in with my cheerleaders and fans later on this week. Keep that Mojo coming! And keep cooking, eating, facebooking, emailing, reading, gardening, driving, dancing, smiling, job-hunting, parenting, training, and whatever else y’all are doing out there WITH LOVE.
Vaya Con Dios!
