Refocusing on Celebrating!

Thank you to Ruth for this amazing community to share our celebrations!

This has been a tough week, but those are the weeks when it's most important to celebrate! Also the weeks when it can be the toughest. 

I celebrate...

* my fitbit which is getting me walking more.
* participating in a new early morning twitter chat called #BFC530. It's a fun way to start the day.
* reconnecting with friends. 
* poetry with my students.
* a hug from a former student (she wouldn't let go for the longest time)!
* Bella cuddles.
* finishing a couple of good books.
* writing in my notebook.
* working on establishing my boundaries.
* having good friends that love I am.

Celebrating changes the focus from stressed out to grateful! I'm glad to have this time every week to be able to do that!


  1. Good to see you friend! Glad you celebrated! Sending you a big cyber hug :)

  2. You did have a tough week. Hope you're healing and feeling better. Your celebration has a nice balance of me-time with friend-time.

  3. Glad to have you celebrating, Michelle. It is a boost to find those little things that make it better.

  4. Tough weeks make the celebrations sweeter! Curious about those boundaries....?

  5. I too have decided that the tough weeks are the ones we MUST celebrate. I am hoping that TODAY starts a better week with a little more stress and a few more smiles. I am reminded that we can, if we try hard, make any day a new start to a new year. I'm trying to do that myself this morning. PS I tried your Tiwtter chat but don't think I can add that to my morning routine and still hit the highway on time!

  6. What a lovely list: poetry, hugs, friends, walking, writing, Bella. There are weeks that seem light and grand and then the others where we feel trapped and small. Finding the gratitude moments to celebrate in the last kind of week breaks the traps and lets us breathe and hopefully fly.

  7. You are a blessing to so many!
