Sometimes the best days are those that are not planned. My friend Celeste called me out of the blue to have a girls day in the city.
I used to see her every day at the dog park. Now it’s very rare to find the time to just chill.
We ended up jewellery shopping. I felt weird like I was stepping into a high end world. Once we were through the doors of the store we were offered coffee and a seat.
I was stunned I was not used to being in such classy surroundings. Celeste says she spoils herself often. Celeste says once we are through the doors of a jewellery store,everything else does not matter. Where you grew up, what you do as a job and who you think you are. You are seen as worthy of being spoilt.
I suppose it’s all in the mind. I said to Celeste that I’m going to be a speaker at Generations United. Celeste says that’s worthy of celebrating. To me it is not a big thing. But I suppose over the five years that I’ve been working on Celebrate Living History, has been building to this moment. It’s the little things that make something big.
Everything I do. I chunk into little bits and before I know it, I’ve achieved my goal. I don’t look at the big picture. I look at the small picture. To me that’s more achievable.
I shared some of my world with Celeste. One of my favourite places is this little bubble tea place. I get to indulge my little kid. There are swings and yummy drinks. It may not be classy. But it is humble just like me.
