What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I love Valentine’s day.
and anything I can decorate for, listen to music for, and celebrate.
I love celebrating. When first starts to feel even a little bit like Fall, I’m telling you, my soul starts rejoicing. Apples and pumpkin and scarecrows start to take over everything in my life, and I absolutely love it. And don’t even get me started on Christmas–if I could bottle and sell the feeling that I get when Christmas music starts, I would make billions.
I think I love these times so much because I love celebrating. God made my heart in such a way that the list of things that make me happier than the seasons of celebrating holidays is an extremely short one.
During any holiday, I feel so alive.
and like everything I’m doing is making a memory.
For some reason, I was thinking on this today, and had this thought.
Monday or Friday.
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
celebrate every day.
We truly have so much to be thankful for, and so much to celebrate. If you disagree, go outside. Is it balmy and warm in a way that puts your soul at peace? Is it so cold that you have to catch your breath, reminding you that you are alive? It’s worth celebrating. What about the way the grass feels under your feet? That is one of my favorite things in the world. It’s worth celebrating.
Now, you’re probably not going to decorate your house and throw a party for the way that the grass feels under your feet (Unless that’s your thing. If so, please, be my guest.) That’s not really what I’m getting at. I guess what I’m getting at is that we should live with a sense of celebration. Of happiness. Of expecting good things from the day, because dangit, it’s a good day.
Because it’s beautiful outside.
Because the creator of the universe call us His own.
Because we are alive, and that is a gift.
Celebrate today. Make some cupcakes. Listen to your favorite song. Wear something fantastic. And remember that being alive is a marvelous thing.
