3. Celebrate

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” -Oprah Winfrey

In the world today it seems that the pace of life has gotten so fast and from time to time people forget to celebrate even their biggest accomplishments let alone their little victories. Over the past week upon greeting several people and asking how they were doing I was offered a few responses with high regularity; “same sh*t different day,” “another day another dollar,” “same old same old.” Is that what this life is? The same old thing, didn’t the sun rise today? haven’t I been able to take this beautiful breath? Didn’t someone in my life make me smile? These little things are all reasons to celebrate NOW! If I wait around for holidays, anniversaries and birthdays to celebrate I am missing out on the joy provided by all of the little wins that I have. As I celebrate those little wins, the joy of celebration becomes a working part of my being. I think today I will create my own special “touchdown” dance and fearlessly perform it with all of my little victories so that when my big wins come through I can look like a real pro. Celebration is what I think life is really about. Thank you life, let’s dance.

Affirmation: I celebrate all of my achievements, large and small. My cheerful spirit propels me towards larger achievements and greater celebrations.

Call to Action: Why not celebrate all the little things all day. At the end of the day the little celebrations will accumulate and expand into a great Friday full of change. What did you celebrate today? Help us to celebrate like you did and share some of those below?

  1. Celebrating CYLF with my wife today after dropping our nuggets off at school. Wife is singing “If you are happy and you know it, clap your hands.”

  2. I have made some big contributions to clean up my financial past this week, and that is definitely something for me to celebrate. Through a bunch of trouble that I’ve had this week, I can today celebrate that I woke up in a bed, with clothes on, my dog laying at my feet. I have a wonderful family around me, two jobs, possibly a third, and I am physically fine. I really couldn’t ask for anything more! The times that I get into a mode of self-pity can easily be helped by this post.

  3. Everyday is a reason to celebrate if you look for it. For example my mom wrote me a check today to help me get by til my first payday. Celebrating life with friends last night and enjoying life as it comes.. Thank you for making this website and encouraging everyone to change their life.. Ps I want a t shirt

  4. From The Secret Daily Teachings
    Change in a country begins with one person. Each country reflects the inner peace or turmoil of its mass population, and so as one person changes they affect the rest of the population. One person has the power within them to bring massive change to their country through immense love and peace within themselves. But we cannot bring about peace and well-being to our country unless we have conquered that in our own life. Do you see? You cannot give what you do not have.

    Each person’s job is to bring utter harmony into their own life, and then they will become the greatest human gift for their country and the world.
