Writing Prompt Wednesday #13

Celebrate good times
You receive some wonderful, improbable, hoped-for good news. How do you celebrate?

When I receive good news, I have the biggest smile on my face. I love to share my good news with everyone. Sometimes it’s easier to share my good news on social media just because everyone I know is it one place. But people like my grandparents and a few family members are not on these social media sites, so I make it my mission to tell them in person when I can. However, telling my good news to the world, doesn’t mean I’m bragging. I’m proud of my accomplishments and I’m proud of the next person who shares it with friends.

When it comes to celebrating, it depends on the good news I’m receiving. Most of the time, I go to a restaurant or just stay at home and take in how amazing the good news is. It all depends on the situation. Did I get a job? Did I win $1 million? It all depends how exciting it is to me.

Sometimes my news is academic base and I celebrate by just patting myself on the back and realizing how far I’ve come. I reflect rather than celebrate and I think that’s such a great thing to do. You’re realizing that ‘Wow you’ve made it!’

So far, I haven’t gotten that wonderful, improbable, hoped-for good news, but I feel like I’m so close to it, I can almost taste it.

Until then.
