Let me preface the podcast by saying this: It is not okay to use your success to try to belittle others. It is not okay to be pompous and arrogant. But honey… IT IS OKAY TO CELEBRATE. It is okay to post on social media that your life is going well. It is okay to take yourself out to eat just because. It’s okay to buy yourself an outfit to celebrate a win you just had. Now of course you need to be wise in your spending and in how much you share with the world… But it is perfectly okay to celebrate!
People will often say things to make us feel like we are wrong for being happy with our lives. They’ll act like we are being arrogant just because we posted a win. They’ll act like we are being careless because we went to the movies by ourselves in the middle of the day to unwind after a long week of work, or even “just because”. But let me tell you something: You are not always gonna be here. So while you’re here, you need to celebrate yourself.
Let me take it a step further. You don’t always even have to celebrate yourself because you specifically did something. Sometimes it’s good to celebrate you just because you’re you. There is NOTHING wrong with that at all. If no one else ever celebrates you, you shouldn’t go uncelebrated. Celebrate yourself! Do you know how often I take myself out to eat? At least twice per month. Why? Because I’m an amazing person and I need to treat myself accordingly. Do you know how often I throw dance parties for myself? Every other day. Why? Because I deserve to dance!
STOP letting people make you feel bad about celebrating yourself. They don’t want you to celebrate yourself because they can’t celebrate themselves. They don’t celebrate you because they feel like celebrating you would take away from them. Is that your problem, though? Absolutely not.
Go get your nails done. Get your feet done. Go for a nice walk. Go eat a nice dinner. Dance to some funky music. Hang out with your friends. Do whatever it takes to celebrate yourself. I mean, don’t break the law or anything, but you know what I’m saying. It is okay to celebrate yourself. It’s always in style. It’s always the season, and it’s okay. It really is! Do it!!!
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
