If you spend any time around *She Sparkles*, you know I love to celebrate!
***Life should not just lived, it should be celebrated!***
Trust me, after weeks of sick kids, disappointing news, and our crazy family schedule ~ it was time for us to get our party on!
As always, I turned to my favorite friends at Party City. Don’t you love that place? I just walk in and my creative juices start flowing and I can’t help but throw a party!
One of my favorite celebrating “tools” is a confetti wand. Have you tried one before?
My friend Erin first introduced me to this beautiful, colorful bundle of joy. I was visiting Erin prior to attending a speakers conference in North Carolina. Imagine my frustration when I arrived in North Carolina, but my suitcase stuffed full of colorful speaker outfits, sparkles, and make-up, did not. Ugh.
When my suitcase finally caught up with me, guess what we did?
We celebrated with a confetti wand! My lost luggage was now found! Woo Hoo!
I love passing out confetti wands to celebrate not just big things – birthdays, anniversaries, etc.. (although that’s fun too) – but also celebrating the mini-victories –
- Showing up at Weight Watchers when you know the scale is not going to be in your favor
- Choosing to let the dishes pile up and instead going for a walk to take care of you
- Stepping out in faith and sharing how you are really doing
- Biting your tongue when everything in you wants to gossip and complain
You get the drift. What small victories can we celebrate with you today?
Personally I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve made it a priority to exercise every day this week. Woo Hoo!
Now it’s your turn! Let’s celebrate a small victory with you! I’ll even send out a confetti wand to 10 *She Sparkles* friends for YOU to celebrate anything you want at your house!
