THE ANTIDOTE TO FEAR
by Carey Ide, Co-Owner, Celebration Stadium LLC
It may be cliché to say, but hey, life is short. In between the demands of our daily routines, responsibilities and the news of the day, it's important to remember to prioritize what we care about the most. Those priorities are our joys to celebrate.
Celebration is the antidote to fear! Why? Because we celebrate our joys in life. Life is in the 'moments" and we celebrate the moments. Birthdays and anniversaries are some of the moments that can bring us together. The planning and execution of gatherings creates the smiles, memories and photos that capture the moment and communicate the things we care about in life.
My parents just celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary. My siblings and I all pitched in to plan a celebration for them. My sister has a friend with a sailboat who agreed to take us out for a cruise. My brother ordered baseball caps for each of us to wear with a customized stitched anniversary logo he create with our family crest and a "6-4" on it.
My other sister bought the provisions we would need while on the boat. I created a cake topper with the anniversary logo, bought a cake and 64 candles to commemorate their day. They were beyond thrilled and the stories, pictures and memories we all have of being together are priceless.
Celebrate the joy in your life. There are lots of moments to recognize. We need to observe our joy as much as possible these days. You will never regret it!
