I discovered that I have enough pumpkin flavored candles to satisfy my love of fall for the next 5 years! I also ran across a box of scented soy candles that I had almost forgotten about. I remember the day I purchased them and while checking out convinced myself I should save them for a special occasion? Well....now it just seems kinda silly that I saved them! I unearthed a box of dishes and glassware from my grandparents auction, my grandmother's pearls, several gorgeous dresses that I had worn to special events, and my favorite pair of worn out tennis shoes.
Sitting amidst the pile of my collection, my mind couldn't help but think of all the occasions I had been "saving up" for. The boxes of life that lie tucked in the closets, waiting for the house I'd someday like to live in, or the echoes of practicality /necessity ringing through my mind. (A Capricorn is all about practicality! lol) In the middle of this treasure trove, I began to giggle. Laughing at the notion of "waiting" for a special day, or holding onto a particular item in the hopes that I would savor it "someday." In the midst of all my memories and treasures, I decided that TODAY would be the perfect day to celebrate. To break out the glassware, to wear my pearls, to snuggle in for the night with a blaze of candles, and to finally get rid of my tennis shoes.
Reflecting on this weekend, has made me very aware of living a conscious and creative life right NOW. Light your candles, wear your party dresses, accessorize with pearls, recycle items that no longer support your life, eat off of your finest china, take a candle lit bubble bath, cherish everyone in your life, create peace with your actions, make a wish on a star, dance even if you are the only one, love with all of your heart! Truly live your life as a celebration and inspire others to do the same!
Wishing you a glorious day of celebration!
