This post is a part of the Five Minute Friday link up. We write for 5 minutes on a one-word prompt without heavy editing and see what happens. Today’s prompt is “goal.”
I’m not a soccer mom, and I’m good with that. My kids never had an interest in the sport, and so we avoided the all-weekend tournaments and crazy practice schedule. And I’m more than good with that.
But I have to admire one thing about the sport: the announcers.
I know it’s probably cliché, but to hear the fanatical “gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!” when encountering the game on a television in some public place, it always makes me laugh.
But now that I think about it, wouldn’t it be a lot easier to meet our own personal goals if we had such enthusiastic support on our side?
Lost those pesky 10 pounds you’ve been trying to get rid of? Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!
Exercised at least 5 days this week? Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!
Finished that manuscript that’s been on your laptop for a year? Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!
Did the dishes right after a meal? Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!
Kept to your budget for 3 months in a row? Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaallllllllll!
Who’s cheering for you on the sidelines of your life?
Who are you cheering for?
Maybe it seems silly to get so fired up about the little things in life we just want to accomplish, but it’s always nice to know that we have cheerleaders on our side.
