Celebrate Other People Authentically

I am a native Marylander and proud to call Baltimore home. Earlier this week, the Washington Nationals clinched their first National League Championship and have booked a ticket to their first World Series. I took to Twitter to congratulate the Nationals and wish them good look in the World Series. That does not mean I abandoned my Baltimore Orioles and have jumped on the World Series bandwagon. I am secure enough in my love for my hometown to congratulate greatness. I did the same thing when the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup after a 40 year wait and the Philadelphia Eagles after they won their first Super Bowl.

It was a reminder to me that we should celebrate other people. If you are waiting until you make an accomplishment to celebrate other people, let us change that mindset. We should celebrate people on a regular basis. If you see someone accomplish something, celebrate them. If eight people accomplish the same thing, it will be done in eight different unique ways. There is enough room in the world to celebrate others while we wait out turn to be celebrated. There was a time in my life it was difficult to celebrate other people who I felt were further along than me. Later on, in my life, I realized I was not ready to receive that blessing that I thought I needed.  My mindset and heart had to change so I could be a blessing to other people.

So, allow us to celebrate one another. We do not have to envy or hate on one another. We do not have to isolate ourselves. We can enjoy life and celebrate other people in meantime. Life is too short to sit on the sidelines. Let us enjoy life while celebrating other people. We want people to celebrate us so let us pay it forward by celebrating other people. As we head into the holiday season, let us decide now to celebrate other people. As we hear news about new homes, babies, jobs, weddings, engagements, promotions and more, let us decide to join in the celebrations. Here is to celebrating ourselves and the people around us.
