“I wanna celebrate and live my life”

I had a dance party in my car with Taio Cruz blasting on the way home from work. I want to jump and sing and celebrate. I want to go out for a good meal. I want to go on a shopping spree. I want to get my nails done and read a good book. I want to garden. I want to finish painting my living room. All at once.

Hell week at work is over. And our department kicked ass. I finally got recognition. Was told thank you. Was validated.

All the stress was worth it.

For the rest of the week, I will have off, and get to refocus on myself, my house, the cats, and my man. But tonight, I spent some time thinking about how much I’ve been through, how much I have to give, and how no matter what happens, I can get through it. The man and I got to go out tonight to celebrate a good friends birthday, and had a drink to toast him. And I got to toast myself.

And I toast you all too. To my family, coworkers and friends – thank you will never be enough. Thank you for your encouragement, your advice, your kind words, your concern, your hugs, your shared tears, and to one special person – thank you for the first Administrative Assistant Day present I have ever gotten.

    You should always celebrate yourself! If you want for someone else to validate you – you will wait a long time. Many of the greatest people of our time were not celebrated until they were gone – how sad! Treat yourself well and when you close your eyes at night, celebrate that you have done your best for yourself, for those for whom you work and for those you love and thank God that He has given you this opportunity to touch others. You are a phenomenal woman, and I celebrate you every day.
