So often in life, we save the things we like most for speial occasions....
well NO MORE!
As I sat in my house with nice wine glasses I never used, coffee mugs that make me smile but are out of season, dresses in the closet that I loved in the store and just haven't found the occassion for....I started to realize
That I am the occassion.
I am enough to just enjoy looking nice for.
I am enough to make the dinner I crave that's a little extra work.
I am the reason to raise my wine glass, even if it's full of water!
I had saved using these "nice things" only to allow time to take the joy of it away. So now, when I want to feel like an occassion worth celebrating, I pull out that glass, grab that dress out of the closet, and let my soul shine through in everything I do. I do it every day as a reminder that I do in fact matter.
And so do you.
