WHO’S ON YOUR TEAM?

Being that it is the New Year, we all take the time to reflect.  We reflect on our weight, we reflect on our love lives, we reflect on our families and friends.  Basically, now is when we attempt to give our lives a total over-haul.

All of this New Year’s stuff got me to thinking about my friends, or more-so, the ladies in my life.  I am very fortunate (some may say I’m lucky) to come to work every day and spend time with the gals on my team.  It’s no secret that I love sports because I think it mirrors so many parts and aspects of life.  Winning and/or losing.  Practices, coaches, and meetings… The success or failure of teams strictly rely on the players, or the group that the team consists of.

Chloe Hodgson, Andrée Lavergne, Pascale Forest-Axford, Renée Girard, Amy Zacharias, Rochelle Senior and Christie Peters (in no particular order) play on my team and I think we have the best starting line-up.  I’m of course biased, but if any of you got to spend time with any of these women you would be changed.  They all have an easy ability to be themselves and appreciate it.  They all have a sense of what it means to be a part of something. They all know the meaning of love.  They all have been to work with little to no make-up on…

Without even knowing it, they make me want to be better.  Without even knowing it, they make me believe that I am already a part of something.  Without even knowing it, they have softened my heart.  They know now.

Who’s on your team?  Do the people that surround you daily, have a way of making you see that there is beauty around, always?  Do the people you hold close have a way of making you stand up? Tall?  Do the people you love know that you love them…?

While you’re evaluating how many pounds to lose, or how you can be more efficient, ask yourself…  That’s the fresh perspective…

Team Freshair, you are loved.
