Celebrations make life richer and keep us focused on all the great things that are happening!
When Kelly was growing up we had celebrations for (almost) everything. The first day of spring /summer/fall/winter…. first/last day of summer vacation….first/last X-country/swim meets of the season…victories/best efforts. Birthdays…anniversaries…..lives well lived. They’ve continued with launches of new businesses, new websites, new jobs, new projects, coming home, winning first triathlon (that would be Kelly not me), leaving on or returning from trips. WE can make a celebration for ANYTHING!
I LOVE celebrations they allow us to savor the small victories, the big ones and lots of moments in between. They remind us to enjoy the ride. They build the good life. You know what they say…. the more we celebrate and praise the more we have to….celebrate and praise! Celebrations build momentum….they reinforce a mind set of expectation, gratitude and joy. How good is that!!
Celebrate tonight! What have you, your spouse, your son/daughter/friend done well lately? Where has there been progress? What obstacles have been overcome? Find a small victory from today and a big victory from the last week. Give a big pat on back and then….. go get another one.
