Do you have a good reason to celebrate?
Maybe a better question is this: are you the kind of person who needs a reason? I’m not. I’m the kind of person who will gladly, happily whip up a ‘celebration’ just because it’s FUN.
I love to use my pretty glasses — like these champagne coupes — even if all I’m pouring is a fizzy drink. I love to set the table, put out a few snacks, turn on the music and call out, “Come celebrate!” Maybe I drive my family crazy, but I do this all the time.
Light a few tea lights, dig out the good china, turn on some music — and find an attitude of joy and appreciation. It’s basically all free, and accessible for most of us, most of the time.
(But here’s the truth, too: I know that maybe things are hard for you right now in some area of your life. Maybe it’s health, or kids worrying you, or finances or work. Maybe you have a relationship that isn’t great, or you’re struggling with your own thoughts. I know things can be hard because I feel the same. Things get hard around here, too.)
But I also know this: obsessive thinking about what isn’t working never makes my life better. Never.
The weekend is a perfect time to celebrate something.
Look for it right now and you’ll find it — even one tiny thing that lights you up and makes you grateful.
Please try. Grab the glasses, light the candles. It will make you feel better, and you’ll be a hero to the people you love.
