#WakeUpWedneday What is Your Reason for the Season?

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day and we have officially launched into the "holiday season."  Today I can't help but reflect about what that means to me.  Why do I celebrate, what is my reason for the season and more so, why is this a "season?"

A season implies "temporary" or specific times and places we gather "because of" the holidays.  I want to propose the notion that everyday is a holiday! Every single day we are alive is worth noticing and pausing from the hustle and bustle to be with the people we love most, eating what we love most, and treating ourselves to the gifts life has to offer. 

My reason for writing about the topic is to raise awareness for the purpose of our celebrations.  

I love the lyrics to Katy Perry's Holiday song:  

"Every day is a holiday
When you're the reason to celebrate
Every day is a holiday
When you're the reason
Every day is a holiday
When you're the reason to celebrate
Every day is a holiday
When you're the reason, you are the reason" -Katy Perry, song lyrics: Every Day is a Holiday

You are the reason, you are the holiday! How fun would it be to create a world for yourself where you wake up each day and do your favorite things, spend time with your favorite people and treat yourself and others as if it was a holiday?! 

My thoughts for you today are to think about what makes each day special, and focus on what it is that you could do to make each day you are alive a holiday. You are worth it; your life is worth celebrating.
