It’s December! This is one of my favorite times of the year…along with my birthday month…and spring when things are blooming…and the fall and its crispness…and, well, I love it all! My Christmas ornaments are up, and I bought my Christmas tree, which is loaded up with colorful lights and twinkling away as I write this. There was a moment of sadness when I was looking at the trees this year. Last year, Snickers, my beloved little pooch, was nearing the end, and we spent the last two weeks of her life sleeping on the floor in front of the tree. The people selling the trees remembered me, and shared they lost their dog this year too, so we had our sniffling moment together. Onto a brighter note, have you ever put up a real Christmas tree all by your lonesome? Since the Flower Fairy Oracle Card this week is Celebrate, I need to celebrate my Herculean effort to not only drag it into the house, get it up, and even manage to make it straight! I just wish I could take a picture of the tree the way I see it without my glasses on/contacts in, because there is an orb around all the lights–so beautiful! It’s my favorite meditation spot for the next month!
So, what are we celebrating? I love to celebrate—love, love, love it! I’m blessed to be in a role where people share their celebrations with me, and it’s awesome to share their joy and excitement! I find it troublesome when people don’t get excited about their progress/accomplishments/success. I don’t get it? I’ve had people who remind me that it’s bragging to express your successes with jubilation. What the hell? I guess I’m just going to be on the opposite end of the spectrum because I want to shout it out from the rooftops with joy! And why not? If something makes you happy, share it! So, in saying that…be prepared! Looking back over the year and the decision to move forward with my business, the celebrations have been amazing! It was just March when I was having “editing parties” at my house–I make dinner, and my friends edited my cards for me. It seems like a lifetime ago, because now they are finished and printed. There’s the little thrill every time someone connects with one and gives me a big grin–I love it! And it was worth every minute of it! I now have five workshops scheduled for 2018–so exciting! My friends are to the point of just rolling their eyes and laughing at me when I do my happy dance. My first month of making an effort to work out has resulted in eight pounds disappearing–that’s 32 sticks of butter by the way! Tehehe! This past week I’ve been asked about teaching three more yoga classes, which makes me preen! This from the person who was never ever going to teach a yoga class–I think Spirit has other plans! Let me warn you that when I am able to do the splits which I’ve been working on, I will be bragging about that!
I am inviting you to share your celebrations! Post it on social media, tag me in, and be excited about your successes! Find the happiness in small things and enjoy it! Celebrate!!!
