Champagne For Me, Please.

Monday, August 28, 2017

The other day as I was scrolling through Instagram I saw a girl post a couple photos from being out at lunch with a girlfriend. 

The caption said something like, "me: orders a salad and cappuccino, her: oysters and champagne, please."

From what I could tell it wasn't a special occasion, they didn't seem to be celebrating anything. Just two friends catching up over lunch in the middle of the week. But the more that I thought about it, the more I realized that one of those girls was celebrating.

She decided to make something as mundane as a Tuesday into a tiny celebration of her own. She ordered champagne (something I would usually think to reserve for special occasions) because why shouldn't she? Something as small as what she ordered for lunch probably made her day a thousand times better, and it took no work on her part except for making the decision to do so.

I want to be better at making the small, mundane things into a celebration. I want to say yes to trying things, to being a part of things, and to ordering oysters and champagne on a normal Tuesday (or Monday) afternoon. I think we are all in charge of our own happiness and it's simply a matter of making the decision to go after it.

Does this mean that I think we should all quit our jobs and spend our life day drinking because that's what makes us happy? Probably not. But I don't see anything wrong with toasting to a weekday, or making a seemingly average day exceptional.

Next time I'm out to lunch just catching up with a friend, it may be champagne for me, please. Because, why not?

  1. I agree with this! There is nothing wrong with toasting to a weekday, it shakes things up a bit and that's okay!
