A thought for Christmas – Celebrate Yourself
Celebrate the times you’ve felt groovy
When you danced around the kitchen
Or wiggled your bum at the bus-stop whilst listening to music
Celebrate the times you’ve allowed your voice to be heard
Like a lark rising, clear and strong
Expressing ‘that’s not right’ or ‘this is what I need’
Celebrate the times you have asked for help
Just because they were there, or when you really were stuck
How useful it was to get a different perspective!
Celebrate the times you’ve said ‘no’
Despite the immense pressure or the oh-so-strong desire to please
You said ‘no’ so you could say ‘yes’ to something else!
Celebrate the times when you’ve allowed yourself to be still
Quiet, with your own thoughts. Or still with others, sharing the silence.
Stopping doing, just being.
