WORTHY OF A CELEBRATION

Yeah, yeah… you're all jumping for joy and partying because it's Friday. But today is most certainly not a Friday for me. My long-time readers know that football season gets a little weird around here. There will be stretches of time where I work 13-days straight (like right now) and other times when I'm the only one in the world working on a national holiday.

So I could grumble and feel like today is a Monday, because everyone hates Mondays. OR, I could look at every day as a Friday and just set out to have a good attitude. I mean, seriously- how often do you have a GOOD Monday or a BAD Friday?! It's all about your attitude and how you approach the day. So although my eyes are bloodshot and I will be functioning on little to no sleep at the family wedding I'm attending tomorrow night, I'm still going to choose to look at the positive side of things.

I have a job! A job with lots of perks that are easy to forget, but definitely should not be overlooked. 

I have a house! A house that might be filthy and strewn with dirty laundry, but a house that we own and make memories in every single day.

I have an incredible husband! A husband that might forget to replace the toilet paper every once in awhile, but an incredible man who treats me like a queen and I get to spend my forever with.

I have an awesome family! A crazy family that is never going to be perfect, but a family that loves me more than I can fathom.

I have great friends! Friends I might not see that often enough, and friends I miss constantly, but incredible friends that I know would drop everything for me in a time of need.

I have a healthy body! A body that might need a few more workouts, but a body that takes me places and carries me through this amazing life day after day after day.

It's all about perspective, friends. Live every day like it's that Friday you've been anticipating all week. EVERY day is worth living and every day is worthy of a celebration!
