Thank you to Ruth Ayres for the opportunity to focus on celebrations every week!
I celebrate writing. I just reread my celebration post from last week and I'm grateful to be a writer, especially a blogger. I can look back and see such change and growth.
I celebrate risks. This past week I spent in a new place, meeting new people, and finally believing in my heart that I am a writer. Being surrounded by brilliant and supportive writers and being counted one of them, BY them has inspired me so much. It's changed me.
I celebrate the act of writing. Sitting down. Butt in chair. I celebrate the moments of despair and the moments of clarity that often follow the despair. I celebrate the work...the journey.
I celebrate the friends I made at this retreat. I can't say enough about these strong, smart, funny, inspiring women!
I celebrate a new goal. Writing a book. I've begun. It's at the very beginning...page 1, even before page 1...but it's begun. I want to write more before I share anymore here, but know how much I appreciate all of the support from everyone who reads and comments here. Those words keep me going!
I celebrate dreams.
I celebrate hard work.
I celebrate faith.
I celebrate writing!
I can't end the post there.
Here's an excerpt from President Obama's remarks about the historical ruling by the Supreme Court:
“...today should also give us hope that on the many issues with which we grapple, often painfully, real change is possible. Shift in hearts and minds is possible...because for all of our differences, we are one people, stronger together than we could ever be alone. That’s always been our story... today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we’ve made our union a little more perfect.”
I celebrate love!
