Tips & Best Practices for Family Entertainment Centers

I'm So Proud of You

someone is proud of youI’ve been a grown-up for a long time, and it occurred to me just the other day that I still want to know that my parents are proud of me. For the record, my parents have been gone a long time–and yet I want to know.

I picked the phone up this week and started calling my own children to make sure they know how proud I am of them. Amanda said, “Mom, I know you are my biggest fan; it’s almost ridiculous!” We laughed about it.

I got to thinking about my TrainerTainment team and all of the clients that we serve, and wondered how often I actually slow down enough to tell them how proud I am of them. I decided that it’s probably not often enough.

I looked up the word proud in the dictionary and here’s what I found:

Very happy and pleased because of something you have done, something you own, someone you know or are related to, etc.: feeling pride: causing someone to feel very happy and pleased : causing a feeling of pride

As I look at these words, I understand better why I’m such a crier. That happy, pleased feeling usually wells up in the form of tears for me. Our son, Jordan, is a musician, and I’m the luckiest mom in the world because I get to go see him at the theater. I never care about the play. I’m that proud mom in the audience that is overjoyed to experience the talent of this young man in the band.

Leslie, my oldest has joined an improvisational comedy group. This past Saturday, Dad and I got to go see her on the stage. It was GREAT. She was the best ones up there (of course I sound like her mom and I’m right!). It was so fun to watch her have fun.

Last week, Trainertainment held our 2.5 day sales seminar in Rockwall, TX. I was able to be in the room with such inspiring talent. It’s a proud moment for me when I get to watch Sherry in action–she’s a great trainer. AND our students were amazing. We had two attendees go out and implement the sales strategies that they learned on Wednesday and Thursday which resulted in BIG closed sales on Friday morning.  It was a PROUD moment indeed watching them “bubble over” with excitement as they put their learning in to practice right away. I was very happy and pleased!”

So, on this Friday morning, I want you to know that someone out there is very proud of you. AND you should be proud of you. AND you might want to take the time today to let those who you are proud of know that you are proud of them.  It matters.
By the way, for those of you that are part of my family, my friend life, and my work life, I want you to know I am so proud of you and I’m so proud to be able to be a part of your life.
