Celebrate the Good Times...And the Not So Good
Updated: Jun 21
Life shouldn’t just
It should be
The last twenty years have been a pretty much constant roller coaster – up and down, up and down. At first, I thought that I should only celebrate when things were going well. That when things are not going well, I am a failure. But after writing this book I realize there is so much to celebrate, even on the difficult days.
I celebrate getting out of bed and taking a shower
I celebrate working out, even if it’s less than an hour
I celebrate all the times that I smile through the tears
I celebrate the fact I’m still alive after all these years
I celebrate the fact I have had some amazing experiences in life
I celebrate my support team who help me minimize my strife
I celebrate my voice, and the chance to change the world
That I can face difficult situations without becoming unfurled
That I’m a wonderful person and an even better aunt
That I have people that help me survive when I think that I can’t
I celebrate God and all the blessings He’s given
I celebrate life, and all that’s worth livin’
I celebrate my mental illness because it has given me a reason
And I celebrate each experience, each and every new season
So if you take anything away from this book – at all
Let it remind you that you are not small
You are brave and smart and loved for who you are
And if you can get it in your head, it will help you go far
So please, get some help, if it is what you do need
You are worth it, and with assistance, you will see it indeed.
Celebrate each moment, the good and the rough
And then while you do, be so proud, show your stuff!
You are so worth it! Now go change the world!
