1. used as a term of reference between two human beings. people whose thoughts, feelings, and attitudes closely match one another
2. a kindred spirit that ignites energy deep within a soul; never judges, always encourages, loves unconditionally, seizes the moment, dances until the sun comes up; brings out innocence and often times immaturity no matter what the age
3. sees the beauty in others even when others don’t see it in themselves; loyal, supportive and concerned from the very first breath to the very last: they have your front, back and middle for life.
To My Soul Celebrators,
It’s hard to begin writing this post, as I am filled with so much gratitude from this past week. The feedback and support we received from our big launch was unbelievably amazing and overwhelmingly incredible in all the best ways imaginable. I’ve lost a ton of sleep, worked around the clock, lived on coffee and adrenaline; and loved every second of it! This week my soul has been fueled by extraordinary encouragement from so many wonderful people. I cannot begin to express the amount of joy and happiness that filled my heart. I am forever grateful for anyone and everyone’s support of The Celebrate Company. From the kind words, to the Instagram and Facebook likes and shares, not to mention the 50 very brave souls that bought our very 1st Celebration Creation sight unseen which absolutely shocks and amazes me. ❤️❤️❤️
You all are my Soul Celebrators! You ignite my soul and I promise to do everything possible to make The Celebrate Company the best thing ever!!!
So, what does a Soul Celebrator mean?
To me, they are those individuals with the biggest influence in your universe. They bring energy, enthusiasm and a zest for life to your soul. My Soul Celebrators inspire me to be positive, seize the moment and to never, never, never give up. I call them “my people” and I am extremely blessed to have so many in my life.
I guess you can say my first Soul Celebrators were my parents, particularly my mom. My dad has his quiet, patient ways of showing his support but my mom is the captain of the cheer squad. She next levels everything: including a voicemail she left me yesterday saying that “everyone in town is talking about your company, I really think it could go NASDAQ.” Mom, you have always encouraged us kids to dream big and instilled a Soul Celebration sibling connection within us. I guess this time we are now talking NASDAQ big. 😂 Thank you for being my #1 Soul Celebrator. ❤️❤️❤️
I also have a group of Soul Celebrators from high school. I am embarrassed to admit that we actually named our click: The Fab Five. I still eyeball roll myself when I think about how uncool and caddy that sounds and I pray that my children never ever hear any of our crazy stories... but God love The Fav Fab! Every single one of those girls has been there for me since the day we met and I know they will always have my front, back and middle for the rest of my life. In fact, my #1 first order went to one of them who lives in Boston and I haven’t seen her in over 3 years! Thank you ladies for our lifelong friendship and for bringing out the giddy in my soul. ❤️❤️❤️
Then there are my Marquette Soul Celebrators: a group of athletes (and a cheerleader!), athletic trainers and business leaders. We met in the good old city of Milwaukee, WI and formed a bond that is forever unbreakable. Our college (glory) years were filled with hard work, dedication and a whole lot of shenanigans. After graduation, we were forced to become adults and learned that life can be unpredictable and unkind. These Soul Celebrators give support, encouragement and perspective. They strengthen my soul with memories that remind me to seize the moment, stay strong and never never never give up. Thank you for being my ride or die, through thick and thin, in good times and bad, to till death do us part, Soul Celebrators. Your loyalty is powerful, your strength is fierce and your commitment is unsurpassed. ❤️❤️❤️
And, now that I’m in full-out mommy mode my momtourage has joined my Soul Celebration. These Soul Celebrators pick me up, help me out and love me for who I am without ever any judgment. They see my hot mess express train and they jump onboard any way. They give me helpful guidance, attentive ears that listen and compassionate shoulders to cry on. They are reliable, thoughtful and fuel my soul with comfort and relief. Thank to my village Soul Celebrators, I don’t know how I would do the whole kid raising thing without you! ❤️❤️❤️
To all my Soul Celebrators, thank you for the inspiring encouragement, unforgettable memories, unbreakable loyalty, exceptional reliability, and never ending unconditional love and support. ❤️❤️❤️
I love you forever.
