Let’s celebrate life

Today is Celebration of Life day! Of course this is one of those things we should all do everyday but we all know life happens so let’s all stop what we are doing today and celebrate the fact that we are all alive!! There is a lot of darkness and sadness and horrible stuff happening in the world and it is easy to get caught up in that because it seems to be what we, as a society, like to focus on.

The following things are reason for celebration in my world today.

  1. Yoga baby!!! It was a tough class but I haven’t missed a Monday morning class since the start of December!  
  2. Jane. Without Jane I would not be able to do what I do. She doesn’t just clean our home, she holds everything together in so many ways. 
  3. Flexibility. I had no idea that I would feel such a deep need to be available for my ids in the afternoons. I am so grateful that I have the flexibility to be able to do this. I moan about it (a lot) but being able to be there for sports matches, events and just to pick them up after school means a lot to me.
  4. My health. I may be a couple of kgs (ok fine about 8kgs) overweight but I am healthy. 
  5. My kids are all healthy, for this I am infinitely grateful. Cameron even seems to have outgrown his allergies and is eating everything he was apparently allergic too.
  6. The gorgeous South Africa sun. Yeah its revoltingly hot at the moment but I secretly love it. I love the gorgeous days and the fact my kids can spend all year outside. 

What are you celebrating today?

    Great Post! I’m grateful we had a good day today and started our week strong! We had a really rough week last week and it’s great to have a day that is so much less stressful!

    I’m celebrating that I have an amazing support system! So many people make it possible for me to follow my dreams and goals, and I’m thankful!

    Great post! I’m celebrating the fact that it wasn’t bitter cold today and we actually got to enjoy being outside in January! It’s the little things!

    That’s some great things you’re celebrating. Especially your health, that seems to be some thing people often forget to be thankful for

    All those things are so important to me too. I’d rather be hot than cold too! 🤭
