You could wear your P.J.’s, birthday suit
or be in your Sunday best. It didn’t matter.
Well, today is that day, gorgeous!
Most importantly YOU don’t have to have
your big dream accomplished yet or be
doing anything epic.
You can be in the middle of it or still looking
at it with wonder. Or in a place of exploring
your next big thing.
Or just be where you are at, because it’s where you are.
Let’s get this party started shall we?
First, Let’s Validate Like Today is the Best Day Ever.
Because it is…
It’s simple and yet we dismiss it.
If you are anything like me, you used to look for outside validation to feel good. We need it to have a healthy ego, but when we have no inner validation, it’s like building a mansion on a swamp. It sinks.
Validating yourself is one of the best things you can ever do for yourself. Tweet that!
It goes like this…
Validate your female body. Validate your female energy. Validate your female power. Validate your creativity. Validate your ideas. Validate being different.
Validate your curves, your quirks, your style, etc…
Validate your sadness, anger, pain and mistakes. Own it.
VALIDATE IT ALL.
Go for it. Don’t hold back.
Second, Let’s Celebrate Like it’s the Only Thing YOU Have to do Today!
Because it is…
We are all guilty of saying, “I will do this when…” This is a red flag for a celebration sister. Stand up, clap your hands, laugh and celebrate your life even if it’s tough right now.
I mean it.
Celebrate waking up this morning. Celebrate making your bed. Celebrate your wins and your losses. Celebrate it all.
Celebrate your pain, your joy, your truth, your not knowing, your being alive, etc.
What are you waiting for?
Buy those flowers for being awesome. Write yourself a celebration letter and mail it to yourself. Write your awesome on your mirror with eyeliner.
Throw yourself a party. Bake yourself a birthday cake even if it’s not your birthday, pop open the champagne or whatever beverage makes you happy, and love yourself the way you want to be loved.
Go for it. Don’t hold back.
Then, To Make This Party Last, Repeat Often.
Why? When you encourage yourself, no matter what is going on, life gets better. It just does.
It’s easy for those who are ambitious to celebrate our big wins, and when we don’t have them, we wilt like a flower without water. I love making dreams happen and help my clients do this.
What is important is not to get too stuck in the big wins or the highs and see the small steps as important, if not more important, since they get you there.
Lift yourself up by validating yourself and celebrating whatever is going on. Tweet that!
When you are in a constant state of validating yourself and celebrating everything, the good and the bad, it creates a magnetic effect. You start seeing this in your life and others see it in you.
Just in case you may be feeling sadness, anger or fear, I got you covered. Go ahead and validate it and celebrate it. It may seem odd and I get that. It may not be a big deal of a celebration, but acknowledge that it’s there.
Give yourself permission to allow it to be present, without charge. Walk it to the door and let it know it’s time to release it and you don’t need it anymore.
You. Do. Not. Need. To. Manage. It.
Did you get that? I used to do this and it hurt so much more. It’s a waste of your precious time and after so many years of doing it, perhaps it’s time to create space for more joy in your life.
Let’s take this party into the comments, gorgeous!
I’ll go first. I validate myself for listening to my heart. I validate myself for feeling scared. I validate my body for all its amazingness. I celebrate where I am right now in my life. I celebrate my not always getting what I want. I celebrate showing up and letting go of my control issues.
Now it’s your turn. Tell me below exactly what you are going to validate and celebrate today. 1… 2… 3… GO!
I’m excited to celebrate and can’t wait to party with you.
