Watching the Oscars last night my husband said, “Congratulations to all the winners who are receiving awards for doing their jobs!” Meaning that Hollywood loves to pat each other on the back.
Not unlike every other day, I disagree with him. Any creator, crafter, maker puts him or herself out on the line daily and when success is reached, there’s cause for (excessive) celebration.
When our blog experienced an increase of 85% readership last year we celebrated with congratulations & a team event in January. No celebrity gift bags were doled out but a great feeling of satisfaction prevailed.
So even if you’re not walking across the red carpet in Armani or Herrera with a gold statue in your hands, find just cause to celebrate what you—and creators around you—make.
