There are plenty of days we have celebrated, they just haven't made it to blog land yet. I'm skipping what we have missed and sharing what we have. Chronology be damned! I'm pretty sure "Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day" won't mind if we are a little late. I have confessed to fighting the "shoulds" and other perfectionista tendencies. No more. It is about enjoying the process, not making it a grind.
I have a feeling this perspective should be applied to a lot more things. My message today is this: take a good long look at all those "should be doing"s or "have to do"s on your list and try to apply a little perspective to them. I'm no shrink and have little to no right to preach on this subject but I know I am not alone.
I have a friend from college who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. She has a blog (http://misifusa.wordpress.com/) and a Facebook page (The Presents of Presence) and every day she shares messages of positivity and enjoying the present that helps remind me about letting go of the "shoulds" and the importance of enjoying the now. That's definitely worth celebrating.
