What’s in the box?
Why, it’s all my Girls on the Run coaching gear!
Including my cirriculum manual. GOTR outlines every single word that you’re supposed to say during a lesson, so if you ever get nervous talking to a group of 8 – 10 year olds, you can just flip to the manual and read it aloud!
I’m most excited to teach one of the earlier lessons about positive visualizations. You have all the girls sit in a circle and close their eyes. Then, you describe all the negativity they might face – bullies, bad grades, negative self-talk – as a cord that’s plugged into their head. The cord is brown and murky and yucky goo drips all over their faces. Then, you have them visualize yanking OUT the negative cord (everyone always reaches up to their head and pretends to literally pull it out) and replace it with the GOTR cord, which is sparkly and shiny and filled with positivity. GOTR’s cord fills with you with light and makes you feel light and happy.
A good visualization for kids and adults alike, I think! Out with the negativity, in with the positivity!
Our season starts in just two weeks. I am pretty pumped and really looking forward to volunteering again.
Something else to be excited about: HOLY DELICIOUSNESS HUMMUS!
Hi, my name is Caitlin, and I’m a HDH addict. I don’t want to recover. Please don’t make me.
