Monday Mojo – Assemble Your Squad

Monday Mojo™ – feel good motivation for the week ahead: Assemble Your Squad

How many people do you feel you can count on these days? As we get older the number seems to get smaller. But is that because it’s getting harder to really know people?

I asked a question on my Facebook page last week, “how do you define a stranger?”  It’s a question worth thinking about, because it can help establish healthy boundaries (a topic I deliver training on). How long do you wait before giving your phone number to someone, or accepting their friend request? Trust is important to all of us in one way or another. That includes how safe we feel, not just physically but knowing we can share our deepest thoughts with someone.

Recognising who you can trust and who’s in your squad, helps us get through the bad times, not just the good.  Knowing there are people we can count on when we need them, can be the glue that holds us together, when we feel like we’re breaking apart.

So who’s on your team?

This week, set the intention to Assemble Your Squad.  Even if you don’t need them right now, make a mental note of the people you can count on.  Make sure their numbers are in your phone, and you have their contact details to hand if you need them.  Bring them together as often as possible, to share laughter, tears and everything in between.  If you feel there’s no one there for you right now, set a ball in motion to meet like-minded people and bring them in to your safety net.  And remember to set your boundaries, so that you feel safe at all times.
