I’m one of those people who doesn’t really celebrate my birthday, or anniversaries. It can get tiring year after year. Yes, I’m a year older, thank you. I don’t really want to be reminded of that. I do always make sure others in my life are celebrated for their birthdays and other big things.
With everything that we have been through the last two years, we need to take that moment and celebrate, no matter how big or small. It’s amazing how much better you feel after getting together and celebrating a person, especially if you haven’t seen someone for a while. Not to mention, how is your Mental Health after the celebration? I bet you feel amazing and connected.
Whether it be a job promotion, finishing a project, meeting a specific goal you set for yourself, just do it – celebrate you, celebrate others.
We recently just celebrated our newest Law Clerk – Law Clerk Leah. She has completed the law clerk program and is officially our Jr. Law Clerk, so we celebrated her. She feels great about her accomplishment, and we are all so proud of her. We called her day “Leah-Palooza”. Yes, we even celebrate our co-workers, they are the people we interact with day after day so why not. Again, another reason why working here is so awesome.
Life is too short, so you go ahead and be proud of yourself, and others for reaching goals, no shame at all!
Christine Allan, Law Clerk
