“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” -Oprah Winfrey
(Repost from January 20, 2012) 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?
