Celebrations are different these days...
And it's not necessarily a bad thing.
Today we celebrate my husband's birthday. At home, just the four of us. Without the fan-fair, big parties, or mountains of gifts.
It will be quiet, full of his favourite food, homemade cards with heartfelt words of love, and no real material gifts. His requests.
This could be the worst way to celebrate someone on their birthday... or quite possibly, the best.
My desire is to make sure he knows how much we love him and how much he means to us.
Turns out, THINGS don't do that. PEOPLE do.
As we gain wisdom through age and experience, we also increase our emotional intelligence. It's easier to see what's really important.
I suspect the same holds true during worldwide pandemics and social distancing.
So today, we celebrate THIS guy...
The "big daddio", superb husband, supporter-of-dreams, idea-bouncer-offer, and all around best guy I know.
Happy birthday to him. And to YOU, if you're celebrating around this time as well.
My wish for each one is more joy, deeper clarity, and fulfilled days with all the most wonderful people you love (near or far).
What are the things that bring you joy?
Has the idea of what's 'joyful' shifted since the pandemic began?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on how you continue to find joy and celebrate the ones you love at this time.
Comment below and let me know!
Until next time, be well.
