Yes it’s July 29th again, and another OTT celebration. There are times of the year that I struggle with stopping and just celebrating life, just reveling in being alive and how great that is and feeling that everyone should be as excited as I am that I am alive (I know that might be hard to believe, that I struggle with that, but alas it is true). Today is not one of those days. Today I celebrate.
It is the day of the year where I KNOW that I am precious, special, valuable, and COMPLETELY entitled to demand adoration. Even as I write it I laugh. I laugh but I don’t think of changing it, because today I really do feel that way. Today is my special day.
The day I get to be the centre of attention, get to unabashedly ask for whatever I want, and actually expect to get it. I get to tell everyone that it is my special day, strangers, waiters, store clerks, mail people. EVERYONE. Because everyone should know (in my books).
So the question, naturally, pops up for me. Why don’t we all live this way all the time? Not the announcing to everyone at every minute that I have arrived, but the knowing I am special, valuable, worthy and worthwhile. The treating myself specially, letting myself do what I want to do, not what I feel like I have to do. Seeing what is spectacular. All of that stuff. Because isn’t it all true? So why do we forget? Or not bother? Or something. I guess because it might be a bit exhausting to do it every day. For me and for everyone who knows me. But wouldn’t it be fun too? Just a little bit.
So here is my invitation to you… celebrate yourself, your uniqueness and your specialness. Do it today, as part of honouring my birthday. And do it tomorrow and the next day and the next, etc – as a way to remember how precious and special this one particular life is.
Here’s to you!!
And, to me, today, slightly more importantly, here’s to ME (the title of the blog is Signy Unleashed, did you expect anything else?)!!!
