Sharing a Celebration

Let’s see just the other day I talked about how Summer is going away (look how close we are to Labor Day!), I encouraged you to look at the positives from this Summer. How have you been doing on that?

Anyway, happy news (for me) tomorrow, August 27 will make FOUR YEARS since my last seizure. Those with epilepsy can appreciate that milestone. To be honest anyone with any sort of serious health issue can appreciate anyone hitting a milestone. It definitely puts wind in your sails! On top of this, my doctor agrees that we could lower the dosage of my medications. Two things to celebrate. I hate taking pills of any kind, I’m looking forward to the day when I don’t have to take any.

So, what was the first thing I did when I got home? Well I called the company I get my meds through and made the woman answering the phone think I was a bit crazy! I might have sounded overly enthusiastic about ordering medication. She understood when I told her that it’s a lower strength.

Hey what can I tell you? I suck at cartwheels!

So, just what (in my exuberance) am I trying to tell you? Well to more clearly explain celebrating I found some quotes that I feel fit the occasion

In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.  ~ Audre Lorde
Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending. ~ Anon
Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey! ~ Barbara Hoffman
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.  Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice. ~ Indian Saying
Warning:  Dates in Calendar are closer than they appear. ~ Anon

So, we all need to remember that no matter what our life situation is – remember to take time to celebrate! Life’s too short to do otherwise, why waste the time we have being all gloomy?

I hope you find your reason to celebrate and share with us!
