I Am Your Fan Today – If You Need One…

2005/Inzell/Ice Speed Skating World C.

The Olympic Winter Games are over.

But in my heart, I will keep a specific lesson deeply imprinted- the lesson of encouragement and empowering.

I see the parents, the coaches, the whole support team and the huge group of fans.

How difficult would it be for the athletes to compete without these people, dealing with all the pressures and limitations!?

Our life is also like a competition, like a very long marathon or a climbing tour.

From the first breath we take, till the last, we are fighting against all kinds of challenges, to reach the finish line of our life.

The competition we fight, is mostly against ourselves.

We start to run every morning to find out, what role we play in this world. We are looking to find out, how we can bloom, living out our potential. We attend schools, workshops, seminars; we have dreams we hope will come true and then suddenly we don´t get a decent job,

or we even get abused at the workplace…

or we become mothers and our children and the household take all of our energy from us and we feel empty at the end of the day, because without any support, we didn´t get a break for ourselves…

or we are ill and the sickness hinders us to live the life we dreamt about…

or we  lost someone we loved…

or we lost our home country.

Our life is like a never-ending marathon through  a wilderness …often we lack orientation and strength.

How important during our life is our support team! They help us to find new solutions, to make the right decisions, to try new fitness methods and cheer us up, to not  give up!

That´s why I offer you to become your fan today.

I am your fan today- if you need one!

If you can´t believe, that you are special and very important for the world-

I still believe you are!

I believe in you!

Your creator created you.

And He creates only beautiful things!

Amanda Marshall’s song can express so much better, what I want to transport to you today, so listen to her old song:

”I Believe in You.”, enjoy the video and be encouraged, whatever the week brings!


Your fan,

You are special- everybody is special!

When my girls were small, I came across a beautiful story written by Max Lucado: “ You are Special.“ (http://amzn.to/1ffmyqq )

This short story taught me a lot.

The little wooden people were wonderfully made by a carpenter and they lived happily.Until someone got an idea to compare each other… That´s the moment, when all the drama began. The wooden people started to put stickers on each other. Ugly gray stickers, if they didn´t like, what someone did, or beautiful stars, if they liked it. Some of the wooden people even stopped to go out of their houses, becuse they wereso  afraid to become victims of the judgement.

But thank to one girl, Lucia, who didn´t play that game, the change could start. She believed more in what her maker said to her, than the other people. He said to her, that he made her special, and what he does, doesn´t have mistakes. Soon another wooden person, Puncinello,  could let the game go and the village started to be  transformed.

So believe, you are special and grant others the same feeling.

Enjoy the day among special people!

Yours Alexandra
