While the last couple go months has been a tough one on my end, and my FOODEVA MARSAY BLOG HERE, had to sit on a back-burner for a bit, amidst all the crazy happenings, I did manage to take time to reflect and ponder. I wrote this article before the end of 2018, and I HOPE THIS BRINGS YOU some much needed INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION to start off your year and make 2019 a phenomenal one.
CELEBRATE LIFE…..WITHOUT AN OCCASION ATTACHED.
Author: Foodeva Marsay
YOU DON’T NEED AN OCCASION TO CELEBRATE LIFE
I recently went to a local flower market, and the manager asked “WHAT’S THE OCCASION?” … and I responded laughingly, “NEVER ASK A WOMAN WHAT THE OCCASION IS, Especially if her husband is buying her flowers.”
THIS innocent question, made me reflect deeper after returning home. We are so consumed by the idea and thought, that we need an OCCASION to CELEBRATE, an OCCASION to be HAPPY, an OCCASION to be GRATEFUL.
WHY DO WE HAVE THIS MINDSET?
Is not EVERYDAY, EVERY MOMENT, EVERY BREATH, A SPECIAL ENOUGH OCCASION? THESE ARE ALL GIFTS, FROM OUR CREATOR, GOD ALMIGHTY, THAT WE NEED TO ACCEPT AND CELEBRATE DAILY.
LIFE IS SHORT..
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION TO SHOW SOMEONE, AND TELL THEM, HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM,..
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION TO SMILE AND BE HAPPY IN THE MOMENT.
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION TO TAKE DOWN THOSE EXPENSIVE DINNERWARES AND CUTLERY, ENJOY THEM TODAY….
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION TO BUY FLOWERS AND REVEL IN THEIR BEAUTY.
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO SHOWER YOU WITH GIFTS OR COMPLIMENTS…YOU KNOW YOU ARE WORTH IT, AND DESERVE TO BE HAPPY….GO, SPOIL YOURSELF.
DON’T WAIT FOR AN OCCASION TO USE YOUR FAVOURITE PERFUME.
DON’T WAIT…ACT NOW, LIFE IS SHORT AND TOMORROW ISN’T PROMISED TO ANYONE OF US.
MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORTY, WE DON’T NEED OCCASIONS TO FEEL GOOD.
BE YOURSELF, BE KIND, BE HAPPY AND SHOW THE WORLD HOW TO CELEBRATE LIFE…..WITHOUT AN OCCASION ATTACHED.
